A homeowner in Columbia, Missouri shot at a would-be-robber during a home invasion. Levi Strodman said he always carries his pistol with him while in his home, and it tipped the tables in his favor.
Police officers were called to Strodman’s home around 10 pm on Sunday. Strodman said his wife had heard a knock at the door. When he went to check it out, he grabbed his pistol, which he said he always carries in the home. ‘It’s kind of taboo but I encourage it, obviously now,’ he said.
Strodman noticed something odd almost immediately, although he assumed the neighbor was just having some fun. When he got to the door, the view through the peephole was obstructed. That’s when he cracked open the door and an armed man attempted to push his way into Strodman’s home. ‘He rushed it and I put force back on him and was able to stop him immediately,’ said Strodman. ‘He was still fighting to make his way through and was gaining ground. Then he presented a pistol.’
