Homeowner protects family against man armed with iron fireplace poker
The unidentified family --- a 37-year-old male, a 33-year-old female and 5-year-old and 8-year-old girls --- were not hurt in the 3 a.m. home invasion, . . .
Powell allegedly broke into the residence by using an iron fireplace poker and his fists to break out a pane of door glass. The family called police.
The homeowner, armed with a handgun, warned Powell not to enter the residence. According to police, Powell entered and charged at the man, who then fired two warning shots. After Powell continued to "menace" the man, he was shot in the legs, according to police. . . .
