Wilkinsburg Shooting May Have Stemmed From Dispute, Intruder Fatally Shot In Head

WILKINSBURG  PA(KDKA) — Police say a man was shot and killed while allegedly trying to force his way into a home in Wilkinsburg early Wednesday morning.

The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Jakeem Booker, of Braddock.

Investigators were first called to the home along Franklin Avenue, between S. Trenton Avenue and Peebles Street, around 6:30 a.m.

Allegheny County Police say Booker had been pushing his way into the front door of the home in an attempt to get inside.

“From what we’re piecing together at this point, this is possibly some type of robbery or dispute in which the individual who perished was trying to force his way into the residence,” said Insp. Andrew Schurman, of Allegheny County Police.

Adults and children were inside the house at the time.

According to police, a 17-year-old boy knew Booker from “previous encounters” and knew Booker possessed a firearm.

“One of the residents of the home shot at the person at the door,” Schurman said. “It appears the door may have been opened, the person was trying to force their way in.”

The 17-year-old, who police say feared for the safety of his family, fired one round from the handgun at Booker. The firearm belonged to one of the adults in the house. [Here’s one to cram down the throat of any wanna-be gun grabber who says that young people should not have any access to guns. This teenager would probably be dead, or severely injured right now if not for that gun he had available.]

Booker was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.

54-year-old man stops burglary in progress, shoots suspect

Man shot after forcing his way into north Jackson apartment complex

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – A man is in critical condition after a shooting at a north Jackson apartment complex.

The man was shot by another man after coming into an apartment unit and trying to assault his ex-girlfriend inside.

The shooting happened around 3:30pm Sunday afternoon at Tracewood Apartment Complex in the 6300 block of Old Canton Road.The man is in critical condition.


Stewart said he chased him all the way out to his car, and began pounding on it — the shooter had managed to lock himself in. When Stewart saw him reach for a rifle, he punched the side of the car as hard as he could, intending to figure out a way to drag him out of the car — that’s when a Border Patrol agent  who attends the synagogue came running out to the parking lot, yelling for Stewart to get down because he had a gun.

Stewart says this man may have saved his life, and pointed to his use of a civilian gun — he was off-duty and was apparently handed the weapon by someone else on the scene — as evidence that gun control isn’t the answer to these kinds of tragedies. “It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun,” he told the Caller.

The agent fired several rounds into the lower part of the vehicle, intending to disable it, but the shooter managed to drive away. The two of them then grabbed a phone from someone and called the police to report his license plate. The shooter later turned himself in.

Concealed carry permit–holder tells Chicago cops he shot and killed a carjacker

A remedy to the wave of lawlessness overwhelming Chicago is suggested by the story told to police there by a victim of an attempted carjacking.  Assuming that the story checks out, Illinois ought to consider easing its draconian gun control laws to permit more concealed carry permits to be issued and thereby deter crime.  From the Chicago Tribune

A man with a concealed carry permit told police he shot and killed another man who ran into the back of his BMW in the Loop and then demanded the keys to the car at gunpoint early Friday, authorities said.

The owner of the 2015 BMW said his car was rear-ended by a Volkswagen at Ida B. Wells Drive and State Street around 4:30 a.m.  The man said he got out to look at the damage and then went back to the BMW to get his cell phone.

The driver of the Volkswagen walked up with a gun and demanded the keys, pushing the other man into the BMW, police said.  Both were inside the BMW when the owner grabbed his own gun and shot the other man, 22, in the head.

I know this neighborhood well, and it is in the heart of the Loop, the kind of area where a strong police presence would ordinarily be expected, and which should be considered relatively safe for driving a nice car.

But of course, with the eroding of civil order in Chicago, it isn’t.

DeSoto County homeowner shoots intruder who was on parole, wearing ankle monitor

Why does it matter whether the thug was wearing a ankle monitor? Secondly, that monitor sure worked to keep him from violating house arrest didn’t it?


A homeowner took action and shot an intruder who broke into his home.
The intruder, who is already on parole, is in the hospital in critical condition.
Richard Bias, 32, was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of the recent incident.

Some neighbors have mixed opinions about the shooting.

Investigators said Bias broke into the home on Center Hill Road, near Coldwater Drive in Desoto County on Thursday morning.

“I understand you’re protecting your own but, what’s valuable here, your house or you,” Deborah McKnight said

Police arrived after the homeowner called 911 and told them he shot Bias. Deputies said they found Bias at the home with gunshot wounds to his abdomen and leg.

A man who appeared to be the homeowner told FOX13 to leave the neighborhood.

McKnight said she thinks the homeowner’s actions could be justified under one condition.

“If he had a weapon and he threatened a person with a weapon, yes, if he didn’t have a weapon and he didn’t threaten the person, come out and threaten the person no, no,” she said.

The reporter apparently has nothing better to do than look up an idiot to interview.
I wonder what Mzz. McKnight might think if and when her house is ever invaded by a bungler. IMO, she doesn’t own a gun, so she’s going to wind up a statistic, or if she does own a gun, she’s not going to have the determination to use it, and still winds up as a statistic.

Suspect shot during home invasion

SHARON PA.— A home invasion Tuesday night in Sharon left one man injured and another in critical condition.

Police responded to a call in the 700 or 800 block of Linden Street at 9:58 p.m. after reports of a loud disturbance and possible gunshots.

When officers arrived, residents told police that a man had suffered a gunshot wound, according to a Sharon Police Department press release.

The 26-year-old resident was taken to Sharon Regional Medical Center by private vehicle before police arrived on the scene, Sharon police Capt. Travis Martwinski said.

“It did not seem that he would be admitted for very long,” Martwinski said.

Although the incident is still under investigation, police said the man was at home when more than one individual entered the house with their faces partially covered. The victim and the intruders struggled over at least one gun, which led to the shots being fired.

Police are still trying to piece together how the home invasion took place, how many intruders there were and whether the shooting was intentional or unintentional, Martwinski said.

Nothing appears to have been taken from the residence, police said. A friend of the homeowner, who was in the house at the time and who drove the victim to Sharon Regional Medical Center for treatment, is not believed to be a suspect in the crime.

“We believe that they had a legitimate reason to be there,” Martwinski said.

Later that evening, at 10:11 p.m., a 21-year-old Farrell man checked into UPMC Horizon in Farrell for a gunshot wound and other serious injuries. Sharon police said he was flown to another facility for treatment.

As of about 3 p.m. Wednesday, police said the Farrell man was in “critical but stable” condition.

Martwinski said the man is suspected of being involved in the home invasion, although police haven’t made contact with him because he was transferred to another hospital.

Authorities told ABC13 it all started when his father returned to their home on Quail Meadow Drive, where the three suspects hid in the bushes waiting for him to get back.

‘It’s You Or Him’; Elderly Homeowner Shoots One Of Three Would-Be Robbers During Attempted Home Invasion

CHICAGO (CBS) — A 78-year-old man turned the tables on would-be robbers in the Belmont Central neighborhood Monday evening, shooting one of three men who tried to break into his home with a crowbar.

The homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous, said he saw three men using a crowbar to try to get inside his home near Merrimac and Schubert Avenues around sunset Monday night.

“I was in fear for my life,” the homeowner said.

When the homeowner opened the door after hearing a noise, one man trying to break in raised the crowbar to smash the glass. The homeowner shot one of the would-be robbers through the storm door.

“That was a tough decision. It’s not like going hunting. It’s hard to shoot a human and not think about it. It’s going to stay with me the rest of my life, what happened. You hate to do something like that, but like the police said, it’s you or him,” the homeowner said. “I didn’t feel good doing that, but he would have gotten me with that crowbar. If I get hit with something like a baseball bat, or a crowbar, you ain’t gonna make it.”

Police said that man who was shot limped away from the scene, and the other two got away in a red Dodge Caravan.

The homeowner said he believes the same three men posed as repairmen offering to repair his concrete steps and sidewalk earlier in the day, repeatedly asking him to let them inside his house to get water.
