Police say man shot as he breaks into neighbor’s home in southwest Spokane

It wasn’t the first time the man had broken into the home, but it was the first time he’d been shot while trying.

Spokane police say the intruder barged into his neighbor’s home this weekend armed with “large kitchen style knives” in each hand – and was then shot in the chest by the homeowner.

The suspect had faced initial charges in an earlier break-in, according to court records, but they were dropped after a court-ordered competency evaluation.

When police asked Matthew Knapton, 40, why he allegedly tried to break in again on Sunday, he reportedly told them he was trying to get inside the home because his neighbors had an “illegal device inside that was manipulating the electronics in his home.”

Knapton was taken into custody Tuesday morning after undergoing surgery at a local hospital, where at one point he was listed in critical condition, court records say. Prosecutors on Wednesday filed first-degree burglary charges against Knapton, who remained in custody in lieu of an $80,000 bond set by Superior Court Commissioner John Stine.

Man shot at Pontiac Avenue home was burglar

A man who was shot while breaking into a Pontiac Avenue home during the early-morning hours of June 27 is facing multiple charges, according to Cranston Police Maj. Todd Patalano.

Brendan Anderson, 36, Cranston, is still being treated at Rhode Island Hospital, Patalano said Tuesday. He is charged with burglary, assault and disorderly conduct.

Patalano said officers responded to 1012 Pontiac Ave. at 3:10 a.m. In the home’s basement, a man in his 30s was found with a gunshot wound in the area of his upper chest and shoulder.

In the aftermath of the police response – which closed a portion of Pontiac Avenue for a time and drew widespread attention – Patalano said the two occupants of the home were cooperating with authorities. On Tuesday, he said the occupants had acted in self-defense and are not facing charges in the incident.

Patalano said the homeowners were awoken by a noise at approximately 3 a.m. on June 27 and found the power had gone out. When one of the occupants went into the basement to check the circuit breaker, he was confronted by a man – later identified as Anderson – wearing a mask and armed with pepper spray. The other occupant, meanwhile, had retrieved a firearm.

“When this individual confronted [the homeowners] and began spraying them with pepper spray, at some point the intruder was shot,” Patalano said.

“At this time, there are no charges against the homeowners and they appear to have acted appropriately and in self-defense, being in fear for their own safety,” the major said.

JoCo DA says Boost Mobile clerk shot robber in self-defense, no criminal charges for killing

Two weeks? Either the DA is busy with lots of criminal activity, or he’s a slouch.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe this afternoon announced that his office had completed a review of the June 10 shooting death inside the Boost Mobile store near 76th and Metcalf and determined the employee had acted in self defense.

Police identified the man killed in the incident as Deshawn Brim of Raytown. Brim was out of prison on parole for drug charges at the time of the shooting.

The robber was killed in the ensuing gun battle as he attempted to jump over the counter presumably to get at the clerk.”

because the Boost employee acted to preserve his life and that of his co-worker, Howe’s office determined he would not be subject to criminal charges.

“We have determined that this was a valid exercise of self-defense under Kansas
law,” Howe said. “No charges will be filed in connection with this shooting.

Homeowner shoots man he caught sleeping in front yard in NW Harris Co

No, he was shot because he attacked the homeowner
(stupid mass media at it again)

A homeowner shot a man who was sleeping in his front yard in northwest Harris County, deputies say.

Investigators were at the home in the 17700 block of Barker Bluff Lane near Barker Cypress.

Authorities told ABC13 the homeowner’s dog woke him up. He then looked at his security camera and saw someone staggering around outside, so he grabbed his gun and went out to the yard to investigate.

The man had allegedly been sleeping in the yard, and the homeowner woke him up. That’s when he confronted the man and got into a physical fight with him on the lawn.

When the man lunged at him, the homeowner opened fire, hitting him in the arm and abdomen.

The man was taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

“I have been in this neighborhood for almost nine, maybe 10 years and nothing like this has ever happened before, so this is all new to me,” said neighbor Gary Ortega.

Before the shooting, neighbors said the man was seen on camera at another home, banging on the garage door and hitting the cars outside.

Neighbor Melissa Elrod said the commotion of the banging on her garage door woke up her daughter around 4:30 a.m. Moments later, she heard shots.

“It’s scary, it’s scary. My daughter is five feet from that,” Elrod said.

Neighbor Jimmy Perkins only found out something was wrong after deputies showed up across the street. He believes homeowners have the right to protect themselves and their families.

“I don’t know all the particulars, but the guy is attacking you, then I guess you got to do what you got to do,” Perkins said.

Deputies are investigating why the man was on the lawn. So far, deputies have not found anyone in the neighborhood who knows the man or why he would be there.

It does not appear the homeowner will face charges.

Officer Diab was approximately 30 minutes into the transport when the restrained inmate, 38-year-old Jamey Griffin, managed to gain control of the officer’s duty weapon inside the transport vehicle, according to WDAF.

Officer Diab was shot in the abdomen during the struggle that ensued, and Griffin was shot in the hand.

“The vehicle by that time came to a rolling stop on us 69 Hwy,” Missouri Highway Patrol (MHP) Trooper Jake Angle told WDAF. “There were some citizens at the Pit Stop convenience store in Winston, Missouri, that I suppose sensed something wasn’t right.”

In a now-viral Facebook post, witness Michelle Weller explained that the suspect “was trying to force the wounded officer to drive” the vehicle away from the area.

A group of Good Samaritans also witnessed the attack, and pursued the transport vehicle down the highway for another quarter mile, Weller said.

One of the men was legally carrying a firearm of his own, and was able to corner Griffin at gunpoint, KCTV reported.

“One of these men was armed and was able to defend himself and others without even firing his weapon just by pointing it at the suspect!” Weller wrote. “Because he had his weapon these men were able to grab the suspect pull him out of the car and hold him down on the ground until officers arrived on the scene.”

If the Good Samaritan hadn’t threatened to use deadly force, the situation could have ended very differently, Weller added.

“In this case, they chose to intervene and come to an officer’s aid and subdue the suspect and possibly keeping him from escaping or doing more harm,” Trooper Angle told WDAF. “I am not advocating that people need to feel that they intervene in a situation this level, however, people chose to and in this situation it was critical.”


Alleged burglar found shot to death in Buckhead shopping center ID’d

A man found dead at a Buckhead shopping center was shot after allegedly trying to break into a nearby business, Atlanta police said.

Investigators found the man lying outside a car at the Bennett Street Shopping Center near the intersection of Peachtree Road and Bennett Street around 8:30 a.m. Monday. He was wearing a black hoodie, gray sweatpants and black gloves.

“He appears to have been involved in some form of criminal activity that resulted in him being shot,” Maj. Michael O’Connor said.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office identified him as 29-year-old Mohamed Akel. They do not believe he was from the Atlanta area.
Investigators initially suspected Akel was involved in a series of car break-ins that happened Sunday night, police said. Officers were alerted to look out for a white Challenger or Charger with three people inside, and Akel fit the description, O’Connor said.


Bakery owner shoots at robbers who stole his wallet

MIAMI – Police are investigating a series of early morning robberies in Miami.

Miami police Officer Michael Vega said at least seven people were robbed by a group of men who asked the victims, “What time is it?” before pulling out a gun. The group of men demanded cash and belongings from the victims.

One of the victims was the owner of Ela’s Bakery Cafe in Little Havana.

“Once the victim realized that they had a firearm and that they were robbing him, he complied and he gave them his wallet,” Vega said.

Vega said the owner was armed and fired his gun at the thieves as they were getting away.

Gun Rights Made All the Difference for These Intended Victims

Contrary to the rhetoric of many gun control advocates, the Second Amendment’s protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms is not a malevolent, outdated barricade to peace that must be demolished or diminished in the name of public safety.

Rather, the Second Amendment is a fundamental part of the nation’s scheme of ordered liberty.

Firearms are used far more often in self-defense than in crime. According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which compiled and analyzed various studies involving the defensive use of firearms, Americans use firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times annually.

The agency’s own data indicates that approximately 1 million defensive gun uses likely occur every year, far outpacing the number of times guns are used to illegally kill or injure others.

The liberal Left continue to push their radical agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>

Nevertheless, gun control proponents regularly promote policies such as limiting magazine capacity, banning commonly owned firearms, and restricting the number of firearms a law-abiding citizen may purchase at one time.

These policies not only fail to meaningfully address the underlying causes and mechanisms of gun-related violence, they also would hinder the ability of regular citizens to legally and effectively defend themselves and others.

Every month this year, we’ve reported on Americans who were forced to rely on their Second Amendment rights to defend themselves or their fellow citizens.

Here are some examples from the month of May that shed light on the importance of allowing law-abiding citizens to exercise the right to keep and bear arms:

  • May 1, Detroit. A 59-year-old woman defended herself and her home against three men who broke the security bars on her window. The woman called the police. Then, fearing for her life in the interim, she fired at the intruders. One intruder was wounded and all three fled.
  • May 5, Memphis. A woman called the police twice after spotting a man on her home security cameras who was walking suspiciously along the side of her house. Before officers could arrive, the man kicked down the woman’s door. He was met by a hail of gunfire from the woman and fled the scene wounded, eventually admitting himself to a hospital, where he was arrested.
  • May 7, Lumberton, North Carolina. Two would-be armed robbers confronted a 39-year-old man in an open garage in his own backyard. The man pulled his own firearm and exchanged gunfire with the two assailants and wounded one in the leg. Both were arrested, and one has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
  • May 9, Huntsville, Alabama. Two armed robbers confronted a 23-year-old concealed carry permit holder and his mother outside a grocery store. After one of the robbers pointed his gun at the mother, the permit holder drew and fired in her defense. The would-be robbers escaped the confrontation in a stolen vehicle and later were apprehended by police.
  • May 12, Lancaster, California. A father shot and killed a man who broke into his home through a window and entered an upstairs bedroom. The same man tried earlier to break into a different house, and the father feared for the safety of himself and his children.
  • May 14, Tallahassee, Florida. A homeowner found himself outnumbered—but not outgunned—by four armed assailants who had stolen his keys and broken into his home. Armed with a rifle, the homeowner fired approximately 25 rounds to defend his life and his property. The suspects returned fire, but ultimately fled the residence and were arrested by law enforcement.
  • May 20, Madison County, Indiana. A 25-year-old man involved in a series of altercations with his family returned one night to threaten family members with a shotgun for several hours. The man’s father retrieved his own gun and shot and wounded his unhinged son.
  • May 24, St. Paul, Minnesota. A concealed carry permit holder fired in self-defense toward a group of males who chased him after he parked his car. One assailant was struck, causing the group to retreat. After the incident, the permit holder immediately called police and waited for them to arrive.
  • May 25, Hudson, Florida. A mother with young children held a would-be intruder at gunpoint for an incredible 26 minutes while she waited for law enforcement to arrive. Although she’d called 911 three times, the first support to arrive was not a police officer, but an armed neighbor.
  • May 27, Chicago. concealed carry permit holder shot and killed an armed man who approached him, gun drawn, in an alley. The permit holder was unharmed.
  • May 30, Houston. A woman defended herself from three armed men who forced their way into her home while unlawfully impersonating police officers. When the woman realized the intruders were not actually police officers and that one intruder had his firearm drawn, she retrieved her own gun. The fake cops fled after a brief shootout and later may have been involved in another shooting.
  • May 31, Las Vegas. Two brothers protected themselves and their home from an intruder who broke in and started a physical altercation. During the struggle, one of the brothers shot the intruder several times, killing him. A neighbor told the media, “It’s scary. You never know what could happen. … You’ve got to protect yourself at all times.”

These instances of defensive gun use show why the right to keep and bear arms is so critical to the security of a free state.

The Second Amendment is not a historical curiosity to be studied from afar, but a real and ongoing safeguard against crime and tyranny in lives of Americans.

Restaurant manager shoots at robber, runs him off

EASTOVER, S.C. — Richland County deputies are looking for a suspect who they say tried to rob a restaurant, but got stopped by its manager.

She shot a ‘chicken-stealing varmint’ in Fort Worth. Then she shared it on Facebook.

Mary Kelleher was getting ready for work Thursday morning when her guinea hens started squawking, as they do when there’s something strange in the yard.

Kelleher immediately knew what it was: one of the coyotes that has been prowling around her 12-acre property on the east side of Fort Worth, taking chickens, geese, even newborn calves.

“I grabbed the gun, went on the back porch and shot it,” the former Tarrant County water district board member said. “I’ve shot at them a couple of times, but this is the first time I’ve had a confirmed kill.”

Kelleher took a photo of the dead coyote, which she believes was a young male, and posted the picture on Facebook with the message: “One less chicken-stealing varmint! Dropped it from the back porch.”


 

An 11-year-old boy in North Carolina struck an intruder in the back of the head with a machete to foil a home invasion on Friday, according to reports.

The boy, who was home alone, answered a knock on the front door and saw a woman standing there. Simultaneously, a man broke into the home through a window and used the homeowner’s pellet gun to force the child into a bedroom closet.

The boy escaped the closet and grabbed a machete, using it to strike the man in the head.

He reportedly kicked the child in the stomach but the boy did not give up, swinging again at him but missing. The man again kicked the boy, and began to grab several items, including a television and a PlayStation, but fled the home without the electronics when he realized he was bleeding, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

‘Intruder’ killed in home invasion had court order against him

yeah, that paper from the court really helped didn’t it?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A woman shot and killed a man who broke into her Ortega Farms home on the Westside, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

News4Jax has learned the woman had a temporary restraining order against him.

According to a petition for an injunction for protection against domestic violence, the 25-year-old woman and the 24-year-old man had two children together, but broke up in March. Since then, she said, he had threatened to kill her. There was a hearing on the injunction scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Homicide detectives said officers found an unidentified man lying on the floor by the master bedroom with multiple gunshot wounds. Fire Rescue personnel said the man was dead.

Neighbors who live right across from the apartment where this happened also told News4Jax that the woman who lives in the apartment knew the intruder and said he was the father of her two children.

News4Jax crime and safety expert Ken Jefferson said if someone is forcefully entering your house, you have a right to protect yourself.

Armed carjacker dead after being confronted by gun owner in parking lot near Publix

SUN CITY CENTER, Fla. — The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating multiple attempted carjackings this morning that ended in a suspect being shot and killed.

It happened around 9:10 a.m. in the parking lot of the plaza that contains the Publix at 4854 Sun City Blvd.

“There is an active investigation and we’re working with law enforcement officials,” a Publix spokesperson said. “We’re very thankful that our customers were not injured during this incident.”

Sheriff Chad Chronister held a news conference late Tuesday morning. In it, he said the armed suspect tried to carjack at least four people in the parking lot, but their cars were locked.

Deputies say the carjacking suspect has been identified as Eric I. Jackson, 32.

Investigators say he also tried to get into a couple of businesses but most of them were not open yet. One business employee held a door closed, so the suspect — who was carrying a gun — couldn’t get in.

An armed manager from one of the businesses eventually confronted the suspect, leading to an altercation between that manager and the suspect. Authorities say shots were fired, and the carjacker was shot in the upper body. He was taken to South Bay Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No other people were hurt.

The business manager had a license to carry. No charges have been pressed again him.

‘I was scared’: Concealed carry permit owner shot man in self-defense

Police have charged a man who was shot Wednesday outside Milwaukee Police Headquarters.

Investigators determined the woman who shot the man was acting in self-defense.

She was only in police custody for several minutes after the shooting.

Witnesses backed up her account of what happened.

Police said Joseph Drier, 59, attacked the woman after arguing that she should not have a handicapped parking placard in her car.

“It happened so fast. All I knew was the panic. I was fighting for my life. I was afraid,” the woman told WISN 12 News.

She did not want to be identified Friday.

The 28-year-old woman said Drier attacked her as she returned to her car.

“I said, ‘Don’t walk up on me,’ and he turned around and went and got something — a weapon,” she said.

It turned out to be a steering wheel lock.

She said Drier swung it at her as she held him off with one hand.

That’s when she reached into her purse and pulled out her handgun.

“I’m screaming for help at the top of my lungs. No one would help me. I was scared. I felt like my life was in danger,” she said.

She fired one shot and hit Drier in the leg.
