  • Homeowner shoots intruder

    When Kevin Landrum yelled "Stop or I'll shoot," he meant it.

    Landrum and his wife Debbie and 23-month-old son Carson arrived at their Old Lair Road home Sunday evening about 9:15 after a dinner with friends. What they found shattered their lives and all that they had found comfortable.

    When the couple pulled in the driveway, they could tell that things were not right, but didn't really put it all together until they bridged the gapping door between the garage and their house.

    Kevin turned to Debbie and said "We've been robbed."
