Self-Defense In Home Invasion

The tense moments when a 34-year-old Mecosta County man awoke in the night to an intruder in his home and then shot the man three times were captured in the recording of a 911 call. Mecosta County Prosecutor Peter Jaklevic says the homeowner was justified in shooting the man because he feared for his life, prosecutors said today. “It’s basically defense of your home,” Mecosta County Prosecutor Peter Jaklevic said. But the injured suspect, Allen Tisron, recovering at Spectrum Health Butterworth hospital after being shot in the hand, buttocks and side, called the homeowner “trigger happy.” Trisron claimed to be drunk when it happened and said he could not remember much of the incident. Listen to the recorded 911 call the homeowner made to police just moments before firing four shots from a .12-gauge shotgun inside the Northland Drive home near Paris. The shots can be heard on the recording. The homeowner’s full name and address have been removed from this recording to protect his privacy.
