Armed intruder shot and killed by gas station customer

SAN ANTONIO — An apparent robbery attempt at a northwest-side gas station ended with a masked man dead, San Antonio police said.

At around 6:30 Tuesday night, police were called to a gas station on Culebra Road near Loop 1604. According to police, a man showed a gun and appeared to threaten the clerk.

There were two customers in the store at the time and one of them saw the threat and shot the man, who died at the scene, police said. According to police, the would-be robber did not fire his weapon.
“They [the customers] took matters into their own hands, and were willing to make decisions and live with whatever consequences that came with that,” the officer at the scene said. “At the time if they felt that that was a threat that needed to be addressed… then those are decisions that could be seen as commendable, but a robbery did not happen as a result.”

At this time, it’s not clear if the customer who fired the deadly shot will face charges, police said.

“We absolutely wouldn’t [recommend this.] However, you take matters in your own hands,” police said. “In the state of Texas you can carry a weapon and you have the right to protect yourself and your property. While these were customers and not owners, they felt like this threat was active and they addressed it as such.”

No charges filed against Polk man in fatal shooting during child custody exchange

Just to make an observation for people to keep in mind if they ever come to the point they use a gun to defend themselves. That deadhead was shot FIVE – (5) times dead center in the chest and he still had the power in him to run several yards before he collapsed. Yes, he was dead, but he didn’t know it yet. The point being that it’s not over just because you’ve successfully pulled your gun and perforated a bad guy. Quite often a motivated thug will have more than enough strength left to take you along with him if he’s of a mind to, so keep you wits about you and your eyes open.
A word to the wise should be sufficient.

LAKELAND — No charges are expected to be filed against a man who fatally shot the father of his girlfriend’s son Thursday during a child custody exchange, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.

The dead man, 39-year-old Brian Ingram of Gainesville, had driven to pick up his son at the boyfriend’s home on Ewell Road, Judd said at a news conference Friday.

Ingram’s mother, Patricia Ingram, joined him for the exchange because Ingram is prohibited under a court injunction from approaching within 500 feet of the child’s mother, Judd said.

The boyfriend, who was not identified, told Patricia Ingram the child’s mother was at the grocery store and would be home soon. He said he did not feel comfortable handing over the boy, 2, until the mother returned.

Patricia Ingram relayed the information to her son and he called 911 to report that he was being denied access to his son, Judd said. Ingram was told to wait until deputies arrived.

Instead, as surveillance video from the home shows, Ingram ran up to the house, banged on the door, rang the doorbell repeatedly and covered the peephole. The boyfriend opened the door slightly, enabling Ingram to wedge his foot in and push, at one point slamming it into the boyfriend’s head.

“He’s screaming at him to leave,” Judd said. “’If you come in here, I’ll shoot you.’”

Ingram didn’t “follow directions very well, or rules very well,” Judd said.

At that point, the boyfriend opened fire, shooting Ingram five times with a handgun. Ingram turned and ran but collapsed in the yard.

The boyfriend had a right to protect himself in his home and is not expected to face charges, Judd said.

“That there was a forcible burglary and battery,” Judd said, “when the guy banged the door off of his head, broke the door and was trying to get into his house.”

Man who had his Porsche stolen holds suspect at gunpoint

ST. LOUIS – Andre Tunstall is part owner of Luxe Menswear on Washington Avenue in St. Louis’s Downtown West neighborhood.

Tunstall said he’s worked hard for his money. When he realized someone stole his Porsche on Wednesday, he was desperate to find it. He posted a message on Facebook and within a few hours, a tipster sent a message indicating the vehicle was in an alley in the Baden neighborhood.

Tunstall called St. Louis police, filed a report, and then the officers left the scene. He waited with his car because it had a flat tire and needed a tow. He believes that’s when a man who was the thief returned. Tunstall said the man went to a dumpster as if he knew something was there. He said the man pulled the car’s key fob out of the dumpster and then tried to take the car.

Tunstall said he pulled out his own gun and ordered the man to the ground until the police returned.

“He had his life spared and that’s not anything to brag about,” Tunstall told KTVI. “It’s just for him to move forward and be a good father to his kids.”

Police charged Samuel Jamar Harris with first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle. Tunstall hopes the man held at gunpoint learns a lesson and turns his life around.

“Hopefully, this will be a new beginning for you and your family,” Tunstall said.

He also hopes anyone involved in a life of crime will learn something.

“I think they really need to understand that people out here work hard,” Tunstall said.

Court documents indicate Harris has a prior conviction for first-degree tampering.

The woman called deputies at 12:33 p.m. Thursday after she heard someone knock on the door of her Ember Drive home. She then checked on her surveillance cameras and saw a male with a blue sedan.  She said the man stood in her yard as if he was checking to see if anyone was at home.

A moment later, the man appeared to be underneath her 1996 white Ford Econoline van. The woman “felt as if she needed to take action,” the incident report states.

She walked out of her front door and shot her Hi-Point 9mm handgun toward the man’s direction. The man fled.

North couple thwarts burglary; husband shoots at would-be thief’s vehicle

South Carolina – A couple arrived at their daughter’s Waters Ferry Road residence just before noon on Wednesday only to find a suspicious vehicle in the yard of her North home.

The couple drove to the front yard and honked their horn. Moments later, a man opened the front door, looked at them and slammed the door closed, an incident report states. Not long after that, a man came running from behind the house and got into the mysterious green vehicle in the front yard.

As the man entered the green vehicle, the husband stood in front of it. The man attempted to flee the scene, but the husband pulled his .380-caliber handgun and told the man not to leave. The wife called 911 and the husband told the man he had to wait for deputies to arrive.

The man told the husband he was trying to find Gaston and begged him not to call law enforcement, the report states.

As the man drove forward, the husband stepped to the driver’s side of the green vehicle. He continued to tell the man not to leave, but the man put the vehicle in reverse and backed up quickly. The husband then fired a shot at the man’s tire to try and stop him.

As the man continued to drive, the husband fired more shots at the vehicle. The man got away.

A deputy and a North police officer made sure no one was inside of the home and found an open window in the rear of the house. A deputy was able to locate evidence at the scene. It was secured. A neighbor showed the deputy video surveillance from her home security system.
