Police in Bainbridge Island, Washington, reported a man was shot three times by a bystander after being caught rummaging through the kitchen of a homeowner.
The homeowner discovered the intruder going through drawers and cabinets in the kitchen. The intruder reportedly armed himself with a knife and retreated to the backyard of the home, where he reached for the homeowner’s children before the homeowner armed himself with a claw hammer.
The intruder then left the property, still in possession of the knife, and was observed by at least one neighbor before turning onto the 500 block of Wood Avenue. The suspect then reportedly approached a man in a car who was in possession of a handgun. The man with the gun shot the suspect three times in the lower body and was holding him at gunpoint when officers arrived.
