Burglar Shot After Waking Toledo Homeowner

A Toledo resident took aim after someone broke into his home.  It happened just before 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning on Hoops Street. The man insists he was protecting his family.

The burglary suspect is in serious condition at Mercy St. V’s. The homeowner, who didn’t want to be identified, says he feared for his family.

The suspect is 49-year-old Victor Stubblefield Jr. Detectives say he broke into the home through the side door with a crowbar.

The homeowner says he grabbed his gun after his wife woke him up when she noticed someone turn the light on and off inside their bedroom where they were sleeping.

Their 7-year-old son was asleep in the next room at the time.

The homeowner says he found the suspect in the hallway, and that’s when he made the split second decision to shoot.

Stubblefield was hit twice, once in the chest and once in the arm.

“He was literally three to five feet away from me, and I was concerned with my family, that he was going to harm my family or even myself,” the man says. “Once someone’s in your house, that far into it, there was no question in my mind. I had to do what I had to do.”

The family is very proud of their son, who stayed inside his bedroom during the commotion. They say that’s part of an emergency plan they prepared for him, and they hope parents talk to their kids about what to do in emergency situations.-[source]
