Ga. home invader shot, killed

  • Follow Latest News

DORAVILLE, Ga. — Police say one suspect is dead and three others were apprehended after a pre-dawn home invasion in Doraville, just outside Atlanta.

Doraville police spokesman Gene Callaway tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that four men broke into a home early Tuesday.

Police tell Fox 5 Atlanta that the intruders tied up the people inside the home, but one of the bound people was somehow able to obtain a weapon and shot one of the suspects.

Callaway said the other three suspects fled the scene with the wounded man, went to a location in Gwinnett County, changed clothes, and then took the wounded suspect to a local hospital.

The wounded suspect later died of his wounds.

The other three suspects were taken into custody at the hospital. Their names haven’t been released

Sorry

Sorry about my offensive comment earlier. I was just so happy that one thug was killed and three were arrested that I lost touch with the terms and conditions I agreed to.

Y'all don't think the shooter

Y'all don't think the shooter should be charged with murder? this home invader was just stealing material goods. the home owners should have just let them take the stuff,call the police,and let insurance pay the losses. there is never a reason to use deadly force about anything! Never ever is force justified NEVER!

Copperhead
So you are the reason that my insurance rates are so high. Why should I buy something and then let someone else take it so I can pay my deductible to get it again? Thats not smart at all. I can buy a box of shells alot cheaper. Why don't these people get a job and quit taking what isn't theirs. Deadly force is justified in order to protect yourself, family and PROPERTY! If you don't want to die then stay out off places you don't belong. Wonder if this is your line of work?????????

Copperhead, the news reports

Copperhead, the news reports all the time how victims are tied up but before the bad guys leave they are raped and/or killed. i wouldn't have just layed there tied up and hoped all they were going to do is steal material possessions.

Charges

Re: Pommom's 01:24pm post: I doubt it.

We've had several of these incidents recently where one of a group of criminals -home invaders, mostly- was killed, but so far none of them have been so charged with murder.

Prosecutors failing their duty; judges abrogating their responsibilty; juries that are unwilling to bring judgment. It all adds up to a plea bargain down to 'trespassing with intent to litter' followed by probation. Then they go back at it until they too are killed or they kill some homeowner. Usually on their way back from healing the sick, at least, according to the community.

Deadly force is a necessary evil. All home invaders should be killed in whatever manner is available to the VICTIM.

Many, not all, home invasions are drug related.

I find it difficult to defend

I find it difficult to defend an argument by some that all these guys did was tied up the residents and no one would have been hurt if one hadn't gotten loose and shot one of the criminals. The facts are that these CRIMINALS forced their way into a home and assaulted the residents, with the intention of stealing and possibly causing further bodily harm. These victims had every right to defend themselves, and I applaud their doing so. There is no sympathy here for these criminals.

intruders

Seriously, folks! Do you really believe these so-called "intruders" did anything wrong?? They were just "undocumented guests" who were helping themselves to the wares of the homeowner. Don'tcha think the homeowners should've been more willing to accommodate the needs of their "undocumented guests" better than killing one of 'em?

Hilarous, guys. You have done good. Still LOL. Copperhead, you make my day by making me smile.
But this really is a serious matter.
These thugs (or thug maybe) broke in to steal whatever they could find, and shot a valauble, treasured dog, which could have died.
Can I say scumbags?

Copperhead's comment

Copperhead - sarcasm?

If not...guess you never read the book, "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote. It's about 2 guys that were going to rob a homeowner. They entered the home in Kansas, tied up the Mother, Father, Son & Daughter, then shot each one, killing the entire family.
