Wheelchair-bound man shoots burglar, now HE’S facing charges?


lembo2A disabled man who was tired of being a victim now faces possible charges for the use of deadly force after buying a firearm to protect himself and his property.

After having his apartment broken into five times over a six-year period, including last month when a burglar stole $1,000 and prescription drugs, Harvey Lembo, 67, went out Monday and bought a gun, CBS affiliate WGME reported.

A gun he would be forced to use that very night.

Awakened by a burglar Monday evening, Lembo confronted a man going through his medication.

“This is the fifth time I’ve been robbed,” he told WGME. “And it’s all been about drugs. I’m tired of it. So I went and bought a gun.”

Lembo held the man, Christopher Wildhaber, at gunpoint as he tried to call 911.


“I screamed at him to stop,” he said. “And I told him to go sit on the coffee table or I’d blow his brains out. I still had the gun in my hand. And I’m trying to dial 911 with the gun in my hand.”

The man saw an opportunity to escape and tried to run out of the room, resulting in Lembo shooting him in the shoulder.

“If he’d have sat there, nothing would have happened,” Lembo said. “But he wanted to leave. And I’ve had enough of it. I’ve had enough.”

Police located Wildhaber, who has been charged with burglary, by following the trail of blood he left.

Timothy Woods, a neighbor who encouraged Lembo to buy a gun, said Wildhaber is lucky.

“I would do the same damn thing if somebody broke into my house,” Woods said. “But they wouldn’t be that lucky being shot in the shoulder. I would have shot him between the eyes.”

Meanwhile, Lembo awaits a decision from the district attorney on whether he will be charged for his use of deadly force, WGME reported.
