A minister in Valley Center, Kan. defended himself and his family on Sunday morning by shooting a would-be intruder in the head.

The suspect, Cory Landon, sustained a graze wound to the forehead and was picked up by police while walking down the road in a rural area just north of Wichita.

The minister was home with his wife and three children, one of them only six months old, when he heard his home alarm going off and found Landon trying to enter the residence through a window.

The minister, who has not been named, grabbed his gun and fired, hitting Landon.

A neighbor offered the minister praise.

“Contact the NRA because that’s an armed citizen taking care of business,” Dave Duncan, who lives two houses down from the minister, told the AP.

According to KSN, Landon had been camping in the area before attempting to break into the home.
