BASED old guy!

A 74-year-old homeowner is defending his decision after shooting a 16-year-old accused of breaking into his Ohio house, according to local news reports.

“He didn’t belong here and I knew … after he came through the door like that, I can shoot him,” James Lowgher told WEWS.

The Akron Police Department was called to the home invasion at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 29, according to a news release.

“When (officers) arrived, they found a 16-year-old male inside the victim’s home with multiple gunshot wounds,” police said in the news release.

The homeowner reported that the teen had forced himself into the home, police said, and “at some point during the ordeal, the homeowner confronted the teen and discharged his firearm, striking him multiple times.”

Police did not identify the teen or the homeowner.

Officers provided the teen with first aid until EMS arrived and took him to Akron Children’s Hospital, officials said, where he was in stable condition.

Authorities say the homeowner was not injured.

Lowgher told WEWS he shot the teen as he was heading to the basement.

“I pumped two into him there,” Lowgher said. “He went down the steps that way and I got him a third time I hope.”

A police investigation is ongoing to determine if any charges will be filed.

    Lol. Love his quote. I was in a Sam’s club the other day and a couple kids I assume were from the high school where in line behind me. Both had to be 6’5″ or more. They were good and polite kids no problems but just goes to show just how huge a “child” can be.
