    Sheriff: Serial Burglar Shot, Killed

    SPARTA, Tenn. -- A man wanted for home break-ins in as many as 10 counties picked the wrong house last week in White County.

    Police said the burglar, Bryan Cook, 32, of Crossville, attempted to rob a house but was shot and killed by homeowner, Keith Girdley.

    Girdley told authorities he arrived home Thursday morning to find Cook about to leave after breaking inside.

    When he asked Cook what he was doing, he said the burglar pulled a gun from his waistband. That's when Girdley pulled out his own gun and shot the man. White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe said Cook had already piled several items on a chair near the front door when he was confronted by Girdley.

    Shoupe said at this time no chares were pending against Girdley, and that he was registered to carry the gun he used to shoot Cook.
    Thank God for carry permits.[/b]

  3. Maybe if enough of them get killed the survivors will find a different line of work.
