    serves the man right, breaking into his neighbors house


    GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. -- [/b]A Glynn County homeowner frustrated after his house was broken into twice and his vehicle once in recent days shot a 20-year-old next-door neighbor in the process of stealing a rifle from his home, according Glynn County police.Police were called Wednesday morning by James Detloff, 53, who said he shot an intruder in his home on Mitscher Drive. Officers said Detloff reported he left briefly and when he returned he found a young man in his home holding his rifle. Detloff told officers than when the intruder pointed the rifle at him, the homeowner pulled a .32-caliber handgun and fired twice.Detloff said when he went to another room to call 911, the intruder ran out of the house.Police said they found the burglar -- later identified as Roderick Leon Manigault -- at a nearby home. He was transported to Southeast Georgia Regional Medical Center for treatment of two gunshot wounds. He will face charges upon his release from the hospital.A search of Manigault's home -- he lived on Mitscher Drive next to the victim -- turned up stolen property from Detloff, police said.Police said no charges are expected to be filed against Detloff.

    Why isn't it "Homeowner Shoots Burglar?" The title, and the word "frustrated" in the beginning will lead people to believe some angry man just shot his neighbor.
