I'm afraid the homeowner will be losing his freedom soon. At least based on the information that was provided anyway. The 23-year old deceased man was in the vehicle, correct? Did the shooter contact police? Could the homeowner just shoot out the tires? Was the homeowner in any immediate life threatening danger? Was his family? I'm on the outside looking in, no doubt. I'm just left with so many questions and will wait until the investigation is complete to understand it all.

I hope open carry will ultimately cause thugs to think twice.

As a result of poorly thought out election results, some occupations have become more hazardous than they were in the past. Unfortunately, we have seen this same scenario played out time after time, where had the deceased person simply complied with an equally simple request they would still be alive today. The deceased made a really poor decision, and obviously did not value their own life as much as any normal person would. As sad as that may be to some, it appears to be becoming the new norm, and as with anything else, the more often you deal with, see, read about, experience anything you once thought was shocking, the less shocking it becomes.
At 23 years old, this young man supposedly said he did not want to go back to prison. Really? At 23, how long had he been in prison? If it was so bad that he felt it necessary to say he didn't want to go back, he obviously did not learn why he was sent there to begin with. I feel sorry for the loss his family is suffering, but at the same time wonder if they knew about any of the type of decisions he was making? Why wasn't there any of his friends standing in the street begging him to not do what he was doing? What possibly made him think what he was doing was ok to do? What a poor decision he made, when he had the majority of his life left to live.

This is one block from the middle school and a cul-de-sac on one side and a block on the other side? Scary for my friends and somehow I missed this last night guess I am glad I did. Sad for all involved.

I guess he got his wish of not going back to jail. I always hate loss of life but I don't feel too bad when the person put themselves in the situation like this. Glad the homeowner is okay.
 
@Nurse3 : Instant rehabilitation

@IzzysMommy : Well, this is one car burglar who won't be breaking into cars anymore. I feel bad for his parents, but it was his choice to do this and this is his consequence!

There is nothing in my car worth a human life (mine or someone else's). And taking a life is Certainly not something Id want to have on my conscience. Would have made more sense to me to lock the doors and call the police.
But on the flip side, people are ******* crazy (especially around here) and when you're a thief you have to know getting shot is a possibility.
I just don't understand why the home owner put themselves in that situation.
Sad for everyone involved in something so stupid.

@jax : Just based on the info given above, yes, the homeowner called the police. The story said they received both a call about a burglary and about a shooting. If the suspect was being combative, as stated, the homeowner had every right to defend himself and his property. The story did not indicate the car was in motion, so I don't know what good shooting the tires would do.

Stealth83 : I hope they don't. They were defending their property. Sounds like the guy had no intention of complying.
 
@Weathergirl5 : Well, he got his way: he didn't go back to prison.
