A 42-year-old man forced his way into a Chicago home through a rear sliding door just after midnight Friday — and got a bit of poetic justice to boot.
See, the 39-year-old homeowner was armed with a handgun and shot the home invader — in the rear end, police told WGN-TV.
The homeowner wasn't injured and has a valid Firearm Owners Identification card, the station said, adding that no one else was inside the residence at the time of incident.
Police said intruder was taken to a hospital where his condition stabilized, WGN reported, adding that charges are pending.
"Honestly, he got what he deserved," neighbor Anthony Rosado told the station. "I mean, you go in somebody's house at night, you don't know if they're home or not, it could've went worse."
