Layton police arrested Clare Niederhauser, 64, last week after he fired one shot at a car and another at a fleeing burglar, said Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton. He was arrested on suspicion of two counts of reckless endangerment.

The shots were unlawful because the burglar had dropped a crowbar and was fleeing the property, according to Horton, who added that the shots could have endangered somebody’s life.

If there was one thing they coverd in my concealed carry class, it was to never shoot at a fleeing perpetrator. This is why. The fact that they community is rallying around this guy is disturbing. He'd have done more good memorizing thier license plate number.
