TAMPA - A legally blind homeowner shot his nephew Sunday night after he broke into his home, police said.
The suspect, armed with a knife, cut the power to the victim's Tampa home and broke in through a bedroom window.
The victim, Melchisedec Williams, heard a crash and stomping, and retrieved his gun for protection.
Williams, 50, heard the intruder's voice, and recognized it as his nephew, WFTS reported.
The victim believed that his 15-year-old nephew was there to harm him due to a prior dispute, and shot the youngster to protect himself, Tampa Police said.
