Homeowner shoots a would-be robber twice

An alleged robber was shot at least twice by a local homeowner early Wednesday morning. The injured man has been charged with several crimes . The suspect was hospitalized but those in the home were unharmed.

Nelson County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Major Keith Greene said about 2 a.m. a call was received reporting a shooting at a residence at 1325 Plum Run Road. At least one suspect, armed with a handgun, forced his way into the home and allegedly demanded drugs. One of the residents then fired a small caliber handgun at the intruder, hitting him at least twice, Greene said. No one else was injured.

The suspect, later identified as Chaylin Montgomery, 30, Bardstown, was transported to a Louisville-area hospital for treatment. He was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. Montgomery is already under indictment for his alleged role in the beating and injury of a man earlier this year in a parking lot.

The names of the resident who shot the suspect and those inside the home at the time of the incident were not released by police.

The investigation into the shooting and events that led up to it are ongoing, Greene said. No charges have been filed against those who were in the home during the incident.
