Father offering reward after man shot in the head by burglar

TAYLOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

John Joseph Henry, 42, returned home with his wife Monday night. The couple noticed the back door had been kicked in. They entered inside and interrupted a home intruder bagging jewelry and Henry's antique hunting rifles.

FOX 2's Maurielle Lue is told when the couple noticed the intruder Henry looked at the man and said, "You can still walk out of here." But, seconds after than, Henry was shot.

Henry's father, also John Henry, shows Lue exactly where the incident took place in his son's home. He says the intruder was hiding in a closet when his son walked into the doorway. The bullet entered Henry above his right eye.

"He's going to lose an eye; he's going to have multiple problems," says the father. Henry will likely be paralyzed on his left side and will not be able to walk without crutches.

Police say the suspect is a thin, white male about 5 feet 7 inches tall in his late 20s or early 30s and weighs about 150 pounds.

Henry's family believes the intrusion was not random because the thief appeared to know exactly what he was after.

Henry's father is offering an out-of-pocket $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the intruder and shooter.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
