A homeowner in Hart County reportedly fought back last night when a man tried to break into his home, with the alleged would-be perpetrator shot and killed.
A news release from the Bowling Green post of Kentucky State Police says Troopers received a report of an attempted burglary at 845 Flint Ridge Road in Horse Cave around 7 last night.
The resident was at home at the time of the incident and shot the burglar, who fled to his vehicle and drove away. Police say the would-be burglar drove himself to a gravel parking lot, where he died from his injuries. The vehicle the man was driving had been reported stolen out of Texas.
KSP continues the investigation and no charges have been filed.
