Homeowner Unleashes Deadly Fury After Seeing Intruders Holding His Son at Gunpoint and Tasing His Dog

Tennessee is a stand-your-ground state, which means people have no duty to retreat from people they fear might hurt them.

A person inside of their own home or dwelling who believes they are in danger of “imminent death or serious bodily injury” to themselves or those they love can justifiably use deadly force, state law says.

This law seems to help a lot to a homeowner who faced a terrible sight!

Police in Murfreesboro said in a news release that two masked men forced their way into a home on Friday night just after 8 p.m.

The men, who were both armed, tased the family’s dog upon entering the residence.

Here’s what the police had to say about the incident:


Murfreesboro Police Department Criminal Investigations Division detectives are investigating a home invasion where the homeowner shoots two intruders, killing one and injuring the other on Friday night.

Police responded to a home in the 100 block of January Street and found a masked man with multiple gunshots wounds at the front door of the home on Friday, May 5 at 8:24 p.m. The man identified as 52-year-old Kevin Ford was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other intruder, 42-year-old Clifford Wright, was located at the Salvation Army on Main Street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Wright was taken to the hospital, treated, released, and then taken to jail. He is charged with aggravated burglary, attempted aggravated robbery, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent felony.

The preliminary investigation revealed the two masked intruders, wearing gloves, broke into the home through the front door, tased the family’s dog, and held the homeowner’s teenage son at gunpoint. The homeowner retrieved his gun and shot the two intruders several times. Three people were in the home at the time of the home invasion. The homeowner is not facing any charges.

The incident remains under investigation.

Wright remains in the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on a $700,000 bond. He is set to appear in Rutherford County General Sessions Court on June 5.

The US Constitution doesn’t say the right to keep and bear arms shall not be abolished. It goes beyond that – it says this right shall not even be infringed.

We should always fight for the Second Amendment!
