      Cops: SC homeowner shoots, kills alleged intruder

      Authorities say a Spartanburg homeowner shot and killed an alleged intruder using a gun he grabbed from one of the two would-be robbers.



      WELLFORD, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a Spartanburg homeowner shot and killed an alleged intruder using a gun he grabbed from one of the two would-be robbers.



      Deputies responded to a reported home invasion in Wellford just after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Authorities say they found 21-year-old Delano Turner lying in front of a nearby home, wearing plastic gloves.



      A woman living at the home told deputies she was sitting on the couch when a man came in and put a gun to her head. She yelled for her husband, who came in and fought with the intruder.



      The woman said the suspect dropped the gun, which her husband picked up and shot him in the head. Deputies say a second suspect fled the home and hasn't been found.
