Authorities don’t know how many suspects were in the house, but said at least one was wounded by the blast. Deputies followed a blood trail out of the residence, down the drive and a short distance south on Catawba Burris Road.
The only thing I can say is that I’d wait for the door to open next time–just so I’d have a clear target. We don’t need any of this chasing down blood trails business. Just a dead burgler who made “…a catastrophic failure in the victim-selection process”, as Massad Ayoob has reportedly said. (I’ve been hoping for a chance to steal that phrase.)
