Homeowner Shoots Alleged Burglar in Self-Defense

A Nashville homeowner shot an alleged burglar who broke into his home on Shreeve Lane.

An alleged aggravated burglary suspect will be charged upon his release from the hospital after he was shot in self-defense this morning by a homeowner on Shreeve Lane in Nashville.

The suspect, Anton Cosby, 32, is accused of breaking into the home just before 6 a.m. The victim and his family woke up to the sound of banging on the front door and windows. The homeowner retrieved his firearm and gave Cosby repeated commands to leave or else he would fire his weapon. Cosby then broke the kitchen window and started to climb through when the homeowner shot him once in the arm.

Cosby dropped his revolver near the kitchen sink and fled on foot. Officers located him nearby and when they attempted to render aid, Cosby became combative. He was transported to Skyline Medical Center where he is being treated for his non-critical gunshot wound.

The District Attorney’s Office has determined the victim was acting in self-defense and is not expected to face charges for the shooting. Cosby will be charged with aggravated burglary, felony vandalism, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm while intoxicated upon his release from the hospital.
