Looks like this armed intruder picked the wrong house to invade. An 82-year-old Vietnam veteran fought against an armed intruder and won, literally beating the intruder to his death.

This happened at the home of 82-year-old Herbert Parrish and wife, 79-year-old Lois Parrish. They live in South Carolina. Someone knocked on the door and it was 61-year-old Harold Runnels. Harold said he was looking for his dog, according to the reports on The Blaze and WACH.

"I opened the door and he said he was looking for his little white chihuahua and wanted to know if I saw it," she recalled. "I told him no, I hadn't."

At that point, Runnels reportedly forced his way into the home, brandished a knife, and slashed Lois' forehead.

During the melee, Herbert grabbed a shotgun hanging on a nearby wall and repeatedly struck Runnels with the barrel of the weapon until he fell unconscious.

Parrish — who said he pummeled Runnels at least 10 times in the face — said, "I felt, we're gone. He's going to kill us and take what he can take. He was not going to go out the door and leave us alive. That's the way I felt. That's why I said 'I've got to do something quick and get the edge on him. Get the advantage on him.'"

Parrish said that he hit Runnels "just as hard as I could hit him."

That is literally insane and the thing you only see in movies.

The report on Fox News says authorities arrived and took Runnels to the hospital. He was unresponsive when they found him and then passed away at the hospital.

Aiken County Sheriff's Office Capt. Eric Abdullah said, "folks have the right to defend themselves if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is call for help. Every situation is going to be different. It may be a similar crime in nature, but every situation is going to be different. There's no way to accurately predict exactly what actions that any person should take if somebody is trying to invade their home. The best recourse is to think smartly and get help on the way."
