Cops: Inwood resident opens fire with rifle after break-in http://www.newsday.com/news/local/crime/ny-lirifl1208,0,1700461.story BY JOSEPH MALLIA | [email protected] 4:01 PM EST, December 7, 2008 Two burglars chose the wrong house to invade when they broke into an Inwood home early Sunday morning. They were greeted by the resident who opened fire on them with his AK-47-style assault rifle, Nassau police said. It was 5:32 a.m. Sunday when the male resident, 36, "heard suspicious noises coming from the front door of his home, and armed himself with a Romanian SAR-1 rifle," a variant of the Soviet AK-47 assault weapon, a police report said. The two men "broke through the front door and were confronted by the victim, who shot four times toward the subjects," the police report said. The burglars ran off, apparently uninjured, and four rifle shell casings were later found at the house, police said. One of the men appeared to have been carrying a knife, the resident reported. Fourth Squad detectives are investigating. ==== I'm suprised he isn't up on any charges yet.
