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.
The nephew was taken to Tampa General Hospital where he was listed in serious condition and expected to survive.
The homeowner was not injured.
