WATCH: Man scares off would-be burglars by firing shots


(WFLA) – An unlawful entry into a man’s home ended badly for four would-be burglars in Kentucky, WBKO reported.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office released video of the intrusion on their Facebook page.

“During the video you can see that it looks like there was four individuals that kicked the door in, as they approached his bedroom he exchanged fire with them,” said Warren County Sheriff Brett Hightower. 

Deputies said 24-year-old Austin Orwig was inside of the home when four men entered through the front door.

A video shows Orwig fire several shots at the suspect before they ran back outside.

“We don’t know if any of the suspects were injured as well, but the resident himself was taken here locally and then transferred to a Louisville hospital,” said Hightower.

Orwig was treated for injuries to his right hand and was later released.

Hightower said the other men in the video remain at large and may face charges of attempted murder and first-degree burglary.
