A San Diego man is being lauded as a hero – at least by me – after he shot and killed one of six suspects during an home invasion. Nice shooting, Tex.
Police say the group, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, broke into the home and encountered the homeowner. Armed with his own firearm, the homeowner exchanged fire on the intruders. “The resident reached for the firearm and then shots were fired. We know that at least one of the suspects was armed and returned fire.”
Officers responding to reports of gunfire arrived to find a 31-year-old suspect mortally wounded in the residence, Atenza said. The man, whose name was withheld pending family notification, died at the scene.
Aww, that’s a shame.
Officers in the area of the shooting stopped a suspicious vehicle and detained five occupants, including 29-year-old Deshawn Ingram, who was suffering from a gunshot wound. Ingram was transported to an area hospital where he was admitted in stable condition. Atenza said the nature of the gunshot wound was being investigated:
Each of the suspects has been charged with robbery and murder. (H/T – Mike AKA Proof)
The D.A. will levy the charge of murder for the offenders because one of the thugs was killed in the commission of a felony. It’s a shame the homeowner couldn’t have taken them all out.
