This just happened at 2 PM this afternoon, so there's not many details.

Basically, the son of the family shot and killed an intruder in the home. This is NOT an area where one would expect a home invasion, which just goes to show it can happen anywhere.

I just saw a news promo for this story and knew it was already on arfcom.

hope it was a good shoot. It says he acted in self-defense, I wonder if the perp had a weapon.

It's an upscale neighborhood, but it's also quite close to Allied Drive, Chalet Gardens and whatever they're calling Three Fountains this week.

Fitchburg has changed pretty dramatically over the past few years. We're going to see more and more clashing between the Allied crowd and the Seminole Hills / Seminole Forest residents.

Too bad our wonderfull representatives think we dont need a castle doctrine here in WI. Hopefully this guy doesnt go to jail.

With the economy the way it is and unemployment at 10% and no signs of improvement, there is going to be a steady up-tick in crimes like this everywhere. The longer people go unemployed/underemployed the more desperate they are going to become and burglary is typically the crime that the "desperate" will commit first.

Just my $0.02.
