Two masked intruders were shot by a homeowner when they forced their way into his home, Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer told local media outlets. There was an illegal marijuana grow operation inside the home.

Two masked intruders were shot and killed by a Summit homeowner early Thursday morning when they tried to break into his home, Pierce County Sheriff officials said.

There was a marijuana grow house operation inside the luxury home, on the 5900 block of 132nd Street.

The homeowner killed the two during an apparent robbery, said Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer. He said it appeared the intruders were after the marijuana inside.

According to KOMO News, the 35-year-old homeowner and his 9-year-old son who witnessed the shooting, were not injured.

And I thought crime would go down if pot was legalized. Another lie in the pot legalization movement.

The 9-year-old son who saw his dad shoot these guys is going to have a lot to process. I hope he is getting support from a counselor and family.

It doesn't matter if pot is legal or not . No one has the right to invade ones home. Let alone if children are involved . I'm sure they were aware of that . Come to my house you'll get the same treatment.

The kid has already had a lot to process living in an illegal grow house. I hope this homeowner looses everything, including his right to be a parent.

One of those men was my brothers best friend and did not deserve to be executed, wich is what the police are saying happened now, that man moved them to his garage and shot them both in the head. Lives should not have been lost over some pot.... No they should not have tried to rob him, but I hope this guy goes down for murder. And I sincerley apologize for that boy ever having to go thru something like this... It makes me absolutley sick to my stomach having a son of my own.
