    Man shot by intruder posing as FBI agent

    A south Fulton County homeowner was shot early Monday by a masked intruder claiming to be an FBI agent, police said.

    The suspect kicked in the back door of the home on Hidden Court, in a subdivision off Welcome All Road, about 4 a.m., setting off the home's burglar alarm, Fulton police Cpl. Gary Syblis said.

    The 53-year-old victim told police he got out of bed and heard the suspect coming up the stairs, yelling, "FBI, FBI, FBI," Syblis said.

    Syblis said the homeowner confronted the suspect, who was wearing a ski mask and dark clothing.

    The suspect fired four times, striking the victim once in the stomach. The victim returned fire, but apparently did not hit the suspect, who fled the home after the shooting.

    The victim, whose name has not been released, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

    Makes you wonder why people fire back when a real no-knock comes barging in from an anonomous tip, or trace of drugs on the garbage can... etc.
