A Green Bay man credits his handgun for keeping him safe in an attempted burglary overnight.
GREEN BAY, Wisc. (WFRV) A Green Bay man credits his handgun for keeping him safe in an attempted burglary overnight.

The homeowner in the 600 block of Laura Street told Local 5 that around 3:30am Wednesday, he woke up to loud noises coming from his kitchen. The man quickly grabbed his handgun from underneath his pillow and approached the burglars.

He said as soon as the burglars saw the gun, "they kind of hustled out".

Although he didn't get a real good look at the two burglars, the homeowner described them as a "black male and a white woman".
 
The man told Local 5's Wendy Fleury that he's slept with a gun under his pillow for the past 50 years. He said after his time served in Korea, he was used to people sneaking in and wanting to "slit your throat".
