Keepin' It In the Family
A man was shot in the hand by his own grandfather when he broke into the older man’s home to steal beer and liquor, police said.
Darin D’Marcus Thompson, 18, of Camp Hill, was charged Wednesday with breaking into the home early Tuesday morning. Police said the grandfather, Herbert Miller, did not realize he had shot his own grandson until authorities told him who the intruder was.
Thompson broke in through a basement window and was going through a liquor cabinet when the noise alerted Miller, according to a court affidavit. Miller pursued Thompson into a darkened garage, then shot him, authorities said.
It doesn’t say where he was shot, but I’m guessing “in the back” would not be a good thing for the grandfather.
The kid faces charges, I imagine the grandfather will be ok. Well, as OK as one would be for shooting your grandson in the dark.
