|If you plan on stealing James Tillman's marijuana, you're going to need more than three guys.|
Tillman, 67, on Sunday shot and wounded one of three burglars who broke into his Sacramento, California home to steal his medical marijuana, reports Elyce Kirchner of CBS13.com.
The other two fled and haven't been seen since.
Mr. Tillman was definitely having none of their nonsense. After all, his grandkids were at home.
Tillman was in his bedroom when the intruders tried to go all gangster on him, but he wasn't trippin.'
"We went back and forth and I shot him," Tillman said. "They just didn't give a damn. They knew we were in here, with the lights on, and with kids."
The robbers were after Tillman's marijuana, but he grabbed his guns (a 9mm pistol and a shotgun) and was too quick for them. He shot a 19-year-old suspect in the hand.
That suspect has since been arrested. But police say at least three intruders were in Tillman's home, and the other two have yet to be apprehended.
