Homeowner Arrested After Shooting Intruders

Jerry Rasmussen was arrested for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm


A homeowner who shot two people who allegedly broke into his home is now under arrest.

Wednesday morning, 60-year-old Jerry Rasmussen shot at two people after finding them inside his Fair Oaks home.

One of the intruders died, the other was able to get to a hospital. Sacramento County Sheriff deputies caught up with the second suspect there, and arrested him.

Deputies are investigating the incident further, and arrested Rasmussen because they learned he is an ex-felon and he used a gun in this incident.

He was booked into the Sacramento County Jail at this time just for the charge of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.
