Youngstown homeowner shoots suspected burglar

Police reports say a woman in the 100 block of East Judson Avenue shot a man who broke into her house early Friday.

Police were called to the home about 2:15 a.m. for a burglary in progress, where dispatchers told them they heard a woman scream, a man yell “don’t do it, don’t do it,” and the line then went dead.

First officers at the home said a back window was broken out, and a trash can was propped underneath the window for someone to get in. The 39-year-old woman who lives in the home let police in and said she shot a man who was upstairs. She handed one of the officers a .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun and told the officer it was the gun she had used.

Officers found Calvin Moore Jr., 41, in a hallway with gunshot wounds to his leg and stomach next to a door he had tried to kick in, reports said. There were two .40-caliber shell casings next to him, and in another room, officers found a .40-caliber Glock semiautomatic handgun in a clothes basket.

There also was a car in the back of the home that had a rear window shot out, reports said.

Moore was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he was listed in stable condition. Police took both guns for evidence to be tested.

We have to show some compassion for Mr. Moore. He is facing foodstamp cutbacks and needs to supplement his income. After all, "there are no jobs".

"a man yell “don’t do it, don’t do it,” and the line then went dead."

breaking into someone's home, the thief has to expect that he will meet with deadly force eventually

Something's not quite right in this story. She told police she used the
.380 caliber yet the spent casings were from the .40 caliber.

Thinking mabe there is a problem with the glock so she gave up the .380. Either be the case she should not be charged if that's the whole story.

If you know anything about pistols (at all!) then you would understand her reluctance in giving up a Glock .40 for "testing". That's an amazing firearm and not nearly as easy to replace as a .380-anything. Glock for life!
