An 84-year-old man shot one intruder to death and fought off a second one at his Lawrence County home early Friday morning, police said.
“Two guys tried to rob me, and I killed one of them,” Don Lutz said. “Maybe the other one, the bullet hit him, too. I hope so.”
Lutz, a Korean War veteran, said that he was asleep at his home on Jamison Avenue when he heard the sound of someone breaking in the front door. He said he grabbed a gun that was underneath his pillow and encountered two men in the hallway.
