A Utah man has been arrested after he allegedly fired two shots with a handgun after burglary suspects fled from his house.
Fox13Now.com reports that Clare Niederhauser, of Layton, was driving toward his home Jan. 31 when he saw a car in his driveway and a man standing near his doorway holding a crowbar.
Niederhauser is accused of firing one shot at the fleeing car and another shot after the third suspect fled on foot.
Police say the use of deadly force is allowed when there’s a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury, and Niederhauser wasn’t threatened by the suspects.

The antis claim this is license to murder, yet charges are being filed even tho it appears nobody was hurt in this case. When the attackers flee now its the cop’s job.
