A West Virginia woman successfully detained an intruder with her 20-gauge shotgun after discovering him hiding in her closet in the early hours of the morning. Police responded to the call from the woman’s mother, a resident of the home, who told them that her daughter was holding the stranger at gunpoint. When police arrived they determined the 27-year-old man, who was wearing some of the woman’s clothes, was homeless. He was charged with one count of burglary, and was held on $100,000 bond. The police chief reminded reporters that in West Virginia homeowners are permitted to operate under the state’s so-called Castle Doctrine, in which a lawful occupant of a home is justified in using reasonable and proportionate force on an intruder. “They’re (putting) their own life at risk if they meet the wrong homeowner,” he told local press.
