and killed a home invader Monday night will not likely face criminal charges,

Stewart Road briefly Monday evening to change clothes when he saw a man standing
in his kitchen, Gahagan said. The intruder had several firearms that belonged to
Lies pulled out a pistol he was carrying and
shot the intruder twice, Gahagan said.
The victim of the shooting was identified as

According to Gahagan, Cannon was wanted by
authorities. "He had an outstanding criminal domestic violence
charge," Gahagan said. "This fellow had a history of taking things
that did not belong to him."
