    Police: Pa. Korean War vet, 84, shoots, wounds intruder with weapon he carried in war

    Police say an 84-year-old western Pennsylvania man wounded a home invasion suspect with the gun he carried in the Korean War.

    Elizabeth Township police say 25-year-old Raymond Hiles was captured not long after trying to break into Fred Ricciutti's home early Tuesday morning.

    Ricciutti tells WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/JdVDJ1 ) he heard Hiles break a window and then confronted him, firing a single shot that grazed Hiles' neck.

    Investigators say Hiles was arrested a few blocks away, carrying a screwdriver and a stun gun. He's being held on $100,000 bail on charges including criminal trespass and burglary.

    Online court records don't list an attorney for Hiles.

    Authorities say they don't expect to bring any charges against Ricciutti.

    That home intruder probably was lucky he was old and probably missed! Scared the S*** out of him I bet! Glad the veteran was ok...
