A 75-year-old Detroit man killed an intruder inside of his home on the city’s Westside, Channel 7’s ABC News Detroit reports. Willie White and his wife have lived in their home for more than 40 years and he wasn’t about to let some brazen criminal rob him of his property or sense of security.

”If he was brazen enough to come and kick my door in, he’s brazen enough to do me in,” says the 75-year-old White. “I didn’t realize until the police was there that he did have a pistol.”
Around 1:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, Mr. White heard someone breaking into his home through the side door. He grabbed his rifle that was loaded with one single round and just as an intruder was entering the kitchen, White pulled the trigger.
The 18-year-old would-be robber died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.
“I didn’t have any other choice,” White said about killing the young intruder.
