92-Year-Old World War II Vet Shoots and Kills Home Intruder

Earl Jones, a 92-year-old World War II vet, claims he was in his room and ready for bed when he heard someone breaking into his Kentucky home. Since this was the third time he was robbed, he grabbed his gun and waited at the top of the stairs. When he spotted the man,

he shot him in the chest and by the time the cops got there the intruder was gone.

Jones said, “I aimed for the center of the heart in the chest … He’s a big guy, he had a big chest.”

Later, the intruder was found dead in a car with two other men that admitted to be accomplices in the attempted burglary. There is no word on whether or not Jones will face any charges.
