A Georgia homeowner fatally shot a naked man who tackled his 67-year-old wife off a riding lawnmower and then began attacking both of them, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, told WSB-TV.
What are the details?
Deputies who responded to reports of an assault found a 25-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound to the chest in the front yard of a home in Lizella, the station said.
Newsweek said the incident took place just before 5 p.m. Thursday.
The homeowner told deputies that the naked suspect tackled his wife off the riding lawnmower she was using, WSB said.
The homeowner said he tried to pull the man off his wife, but the suspect attacked him — and then started attacking his wife again, the station said.
So the husband said he retrieved his gun and shot the suspect, WSB reported.
What happened to the wife and husband?
The station said the wife was taken to a hospital where she was stable and treated for her injuries. The husband — who is 66, according to Newsweek — had minor injuries and was treated at the scene, WSB said.
The suspect has not been identified pending notification of next of kin, the station added.
