Weakley Co. man shot, killed after allegedly attempting to break into ex-girlfriend’s home
DRESDEN, Tenn. — After receiving a prowler call in Weakley County last night, sheriff’s deputies ended up investigating a homicide.
Investigators say a man died late Tuesday night on Pisgah Road in Dresden after he was trying to break into his ex-girlfriend’s house.
“A call came in shortly after 11 o’clock, what was believed to be a prowler call, and the deputies responding, and while they were going, the call was updated that somebody at the scene had been shot,” Captain Randall McGowan of the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department said.
Investigators say 20-year-old Anthony Perry parked his car down the road and walked to the woman’s house.
“An off-again, on-again boyfriend of the woman who lived at the house,” McGowan said. “Their relationship was off at the present time, and he was upset about it, and he was trying to get in the house to talk to her, and he broke a window out of the master bedroom.”
Burglar Shot By East Pasadena Homeowner
ASADENA (CBSLA) — An East Pasadena burglar was reportedly shot by a homeowner Wednesday afternoon.
CBS2’s Tom Wait spoke to one homeowner who said she saw the burglar leaving her home with property he had allegedly stolen.
The incident played out on the 3600 block of Grayburn Road around 3:30 p.m.
The homeowner didn’t want to give her name but said she saw him just outside her home after returning from a walk.
“He told me it was his home and his mother was inside,” she said, “but I said, ‘This is my house.’ So, I look up and see my door was broken. So I didn’t know what to do, but I started calling the police. He ran inside my place again and came out with two luggages.”
The suspect — described as an adult white male — reportedly ran down the street and broke into another home. That homeowner, a man, told the suspect he had a gun but said the man did not leave.
The homeowner shot the suspect in the torso. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital where he is reportedly in stable condition.
Neither the first homeowner or man with the gun were hurt, Wait reported.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — A man was shot inside a MetroPCS on Sunbeam Road while trying to rob the store around 5:30 p.m., the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says.
JSO says the suspect fled after being shot, but was shortly taken to the hospital.
Police did not say whether the shooter was an employee or customer of the store. Brian Alvarenga, who works as a barber at Kut Kingz nearby, said an employee shot the gun in self defense.
“A gentleman who works at Metro PCS started banging on the glass to try to get our attention, and he said he just shot somebody who tried to rob him over there.”
At the scene on Wednesday, detectives swarmed a car. Alvarenga said the suspected attempted robber tried to run to his car after getting shot. There were blood stains on the ground in the parking lot next to a brown-colored Ford SUV.
Alvarenga said this same employee has experienced this before. “This is the second time, same situation, same kid.”
The suspect’s identity has not been released.
The man who shot at the suspect was brought in for questioning. At this time, there are no charges against him.
