The homeowner who shot the man has yet to come forward.

The sheriff said property owners should not be afraid to come forward because they did not commit any wrongdoing.

Mr. Johnson also offers lessons to residents to improve their goals.

“You don’t have a problem. Come see us. We have a firearm safety class that we hold every Saturday. If you take it, you’ll shoot better and hopefully you’ll save taxpayers money,” he said.

The incident happened in the county on April 20 at about 4.30pm when the sheriff’s office got a call about a suspicious person in an area.

More than a dozen deputies were dispatched after a 911 call to arrest the man, who was later identified by Mr Johnson as “frequent flyer” Brandon Harris.

Police set the perimeter and even took out the K-9 unit, after which Mr Johnsons said the man began jumping fences and breaking into the house.

After a while, police got a call about the shots being fired. They later found out that a bored resident had shot Harris and he was trying to break into his home.
