Kingsport, Tennessee Burglar Shot By Neighbor

Kingsport, Tennessee

From the August 4, 2009 Kingsport Times-News:

KINGSPORT — Police are investigating after a burglary suspect was shot by the alleged victim’s neighbor.

Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson said the incident occurred about 2:25 p.m. Monday.

Police said Dustin Eads, 29, was shot by Dennis McClanahan, 52, 2670 Pratt Road, Kingsport, after Eads allegedly attempted to steal something from McClanahan’s neighbor, Lisa Berry, 2644 Pratt Road, Kingsport.

McClanahan said he heard what sounded like glass breaking at his neighbor’s residence. He retrieved a .45-caliber handgun and went outside to check it out, said Anderson.

“He felt someone was trying to break in,” Anderson said.

Eads came outside carrying something in his hands, and a scuffle ensued when McClanahan confronted him, the sheriff said. Eads broke free, and McClanahan fired several shots as he jumped into a black Honda and drove away, Anderson said.
