Man picking up his stolen car fatally shot an alleged street robber in Des Moines Washington.

Des Moines police last week investigated what appears to be a crime of opportunity that turned deadly when the victim of a street robbery returned fire and fatally shot his alleged assailant, according to a police spokesperson.
Randle Cody Jr., 45, died Wednesday from multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The medical examiner classifies deaths as natural, accidental, homicide, suicide or undetermined. A determination of homicide means only that a person was responsible for another person’s death and does not necessarily indicate criminal culpability.
Around 4 p.m. Wednesday, several people called 911 after hearing gunshots in the 22900 block of 30th Avenue South, said Des Moines police Sgt. Dave Mohr.
He said the police investigation found that a 31-year-old Renton man had reported his car stolen on Jan. 18 and two days later, the vehicle was located by Des Moines police officers, said Mohr. The owner asked that the car not be impounded and he went to his vehicle’s location on his motorcycle to await a tow truck.
While the 31-year-old was waiting, an SUV pulled up, driven by a 30-year-old Kent man with a 45-year-old Tukwila man as a passenger, said Mohr. The 45-year-old got out of the SUV and struck up a conversation with the Renton man about his motorcycle, he said.

The 45-year-old then pulled a gun and demanded the younger man’s backpack, pocketing his weapon as the Renton man handed over the bag, said Mohr. The 31-year-old then pulled out his own gun and the 45-year-old grabbed his gun and fired once, missing the 31-year-old; the 31-year-old returned fire, striking the 45-year-old multiple times, according to Mohr.
The 45-year-old was treated at the scene but died soon after arriving at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, Mohr said.
The 31-year-old Renton man and the SUV’s driver were both interviewed by officers and Des Moines police have since sent their case to King County prosecutors to be reviewed. The Renton man was not arrested or booked into jail.
“To my knowledge, it’s just an odd coincidence,” Mohr said of the encounter, adding there’s no evidence the 45-year-old was involved in stealing the Renton man’s car. “The 31-year-old was just a victim of opportunity for the two in the SUV.”
Mohr said the 31-year-old was legally in possession of a handgun and had a valid concealed pistol license at the time of the fatal shooting.

Suspected intruder shot, killed while breaking into Harrison Twp

A suspected intruder was shot and killed while allegedly breaking into a Harrison Township apartment complex early Monday afternoon, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident happened about 12:35 p.m. at Harrison Woods Condominiums on Harrison Woods Lane, in the area of Northpointe Parkway and Metropolitan Parkway.
“It was basically a home invasion, where the occupants were home and shot the individual who was coming in,” said Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.

According to a news release, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the complex for a home invasion in progress. While deputies were on their way, dispatch notified them residents reported hearing gunshots.
Upon their arrival, deputies found a 26-year-old Redford Township man dead inside of the residence, said sheriff’s Sgt. David Crabtree.
“It was determined that the decedent forced his way into the home and was subsequently shot by one of the occupants,” Crabtree said in the release.
The occupants — a Harrison Township woman and a man from Inkster, both 27 — were taken to the sheriff’s office in Mount Clemens. They have since been released.

Police believe the subjects knew each other.
As of 6 p.m., investigators remained on the scene conducting their investigation.
Wickersham said the apartment occupants were being cooperative with the deputies.
“We’ll be conferring with the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office and they will be the ones who will make the determination as to whether this was a justifiable homicide,” the sheriff said.
There is no reason for the residents of Harrison Township to be alarmed, Wickersham added.
The suspect’s name was not released Monday night.
Monday’s incident marked the fourth fatal shooting this month in Macomb County.

Home Intruder Fatally Shot

FAR MIDDLE FORK , KY– A home intruder was fatally shot after reportedly threatening the residents when they arrived home.

On Sunday, January 17, a 911 call came into Magoffin County dispatch reporting a shooting at a mobile home on KY Rt. 378 near the Magoffin/Breathitt county line.

Kentucky State Police investigators responded to the home and discovered a male had been shot. According to a press release from KSP, the initial investigation indicates Bradley Johnson, 28, of Olive Hill, was unlawfully inside the residence of Lyndon Holland, an altercation ensued and a firearm was discharged, resulting in Johnson suffering a fatal gunshot wound.

Johnson was pronounced deceased at the scene by Magoffin County Coroner’s Office.

Magoffin County Deputy Coroner Brian Parker told Mortimer Media, “After forcing entry, he demanded their belongings and money and there was an altercation. Mr. Holland was assaulted by Mr. Johnson.

He then walked around the corner of his SUV, grabbed a Ruger .22, and fired one time in the air. He asked Mr. Johnson to please leave the property, but Mr. Johnson then grabbed a hammer and came around the front of the vehicle, threatening his life. He then fired and shot Mr. Johnson in the chest, single shot, and killed Mr. Johnson.”

According to the coroner’s report, Johnson had punched Holland in the face during the altercation prior to Holland getting a gun out of his vehicle. Multiple shots were fired, but only one shot hit Johnson.

Johnson’s body was sent to the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort for an autopsy and toxicology report.

Johnson’s mother, who lives in Morehead, told the coroner’s office her son had a history of drug addiction and has been in and out of jail for multiple reasons. She also stated that her other son, Nicholas Stephens, died of a gunshot wound, as well, a few years ago, in an incident that was listed as an accident.

While KSP had Johnson listed as living in Olive Hill, according to jail records, when Johnson was arrested for a reported DUI in Salyersville on January 2 this year, he had an Oakley Fork, Salyersville address. In 2017, when arrested for a probation violation and taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, he had a Salyersville address, and in 2016 in two different arrests, including one for manufacturing methamphetamine, he had addresses in West Liberty.

KSP Detective Kevin Newsome is leading the investigation and he was assisted on the scene by KSP personnel and Lifeguard Ambulance Service. Magoffin County Rescue Squad and Magoffin County Coroner’s Office also responded to the scene.

According to KSP, the investigation will be presented to the Magoffin County Grand Jury for consideration. No charges have been filed at this time and the incident is being handled as a self-defense case.

Johnson is survived by a son, Bentley Johnson, of Carter County, mom, Amanda Patrick, of Morehead, and brother, Zachery Stephens, of Elliot County.

Hesperia homeowner fends off intruder in gun battle caught on camera

HESPERIA, Calif. (KABC) — A Hesperia homeowner fended off an armed man who was trying to break into his home, exchanging gunfire until the man ran away.

The wild early-morning shootout was caught on camera – and the suspect turned out to be a neighbor who lived only a few doors down.

The incident happened early Monday morning, when the family heard someone trying to break into their home.

“I see him – he’s trying to kick the door in, demanding to come in. Then I see him pull out a gun.”

The homeowner ushered his wife and child into a closet for safety while he went to grab his own gun.

He came back to the front door and could see the man pointing his gun. At that point, they both started shooting at each other through the door.
The two exchanged gunfire through the door for less than a minute before the man ran away on foot, firing a shot at another home in the neighborhood as he fled.

A few minutes later, sheriff’s deputies showed up and eventually found and arrested the suspect in the neighborhood. The homeowner said the man turned out to be his neighbor, but they didn’t know each other or have any previous interaction.

The home was left with bullet holes in the walls and doors. The homeowner was armed with a 9 mm and says from the bullet casings it appears the intruder had a .22.

The sheriff’s department later identified the suspect as Erick Contreras, 39, a resident of Hesperia. Contreras was arrested and booked for attempted murder, shooting in an inhabited dwelling, attempted robbery and felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

There have been several other incidents in recent years of homeowners in Hesperia shooting intruders

String of armed robberies ends with suspect shot at corner store in Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A string of armed convenience store robberies that started in Victor ended on Thurston Road in Rochester Wednesday night, when an employee of Angelo’s Grocery Store shot the suspect.

That’s according to Rochester police, who say the suspect — a 25-year-old Rochester man — is in custody.

Investigators say the suspect began by robbing a Kwik Fill in Victor and then robbed a FastTrac on West Ridge Road and a Family Dollar on Dewey Avenue. They say the suspect was shot while attempting to rob Angelo’s Grocery. The timeline is as follows:

3:38 p.m.: robbery at Kwik Fill in Victor (a suspect and vehicle description was broadcast to RPD)
6:49 p.m.: robbery at the FastTrac at 375 W Ridge Road
7:07 p.m.: robbery at the Family Dollar at 706 Dewey Avenue
7:26 p.m.: attempted robbery at Angelo’s Grocery and Deli at 579 Thurston Road
While attempting to the last of the robberies, RPD officials said the store owner produced a legally owned hand gun and fired at the suspect, striking him. The store owner stayed on scene until police arrived.

“The first sergeant on the scene was by herself but did a great job taking the male suspect who had been shot into custody, as well as detaining the two clerks from the store,” said RPD Captain Naser Zenelovic. “She recovered two handguns, one from each person. You can imagine how stressful that was.”

Rochester police say the suspect is being treated at Strong Memorial Hospital and is expected to recover. The investigation is ongoing.
