A California man reportedly saved his father’s life by shooting an intruder who invaded the father’s home and started stabbing him.

Fox 5 reports:

The resident’s adult son opened fire on the suspect, Hollis Forman, 38, after finding his 54-year-old father being assaulted at the family’s residence on Lake Shore Drive near Lake Ree Avenue on Tuesday morning, according to police.

“The (intruder) began assaulting the homeowner, at which point the homeowner’s 20-year-old son retrieved a firearm and shot the intruder,” the lieutenant said. “(Forman) ran out the back door and landed in the pool.”

The homeowner was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
