Resident stops home invasion; shoots suspect

According to Talladega County Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore, a female resident told investigators she woke up and saw Garrett in her kitchen.

At that point, she yelled for her husband, who began chasing Garrett throughout their home while wielding a firearm.

The husband fired two shots at Garrett, simultaneously wounding the intruder and thwarting the home invasion.

Garrett, a registered sex offender, had been arrested twice in 1985 for first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse of a 69-year-old woman.–shoots-suspect?instance=home_right_bot
