2 Suspects Fatally Shot During Home Invasion In South Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An apparent home invasion turned deadly in South Philadelphia. Police say two men who were trying to break into a home on the 1600 block of South 10th Street were shot and killed by two men inside the house.

Officials were on the scene for hours as they worked to determine what exactly happened and why.

A home invasion turned deadly Monday afternoon, turning this residential street into a crime scene.

“At first, I thought it was a woman and there were two intruders that were going to rob her, but now, I have no idea what really happened,” a neighbor said.

As details emerged, police say it was two men who lived at the home who shot two others who tried to force their way in.

The brazen break-in unfolded on the 1600 block of South 10th Street around 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon.

“I’m thinking maybe it’s time to move out. For something like this to happen in the middle of the afternoon, it’s like — I heard it was a robbery — if that’s the true story or not, I’m not sure but it’s tough to take,” Mary Grace McHale said.

The two suspects died at Jefferson University Hospital. A 33-year- old was shot 15 times while the other man — between 25 and 30 years old — was shot five times. Officers found both men unresponsive inside the home.

“Shocking. Like I was saying, you don’t expect something like this in your own neighborhood. You see it on the news all the time, unfortunately, and this is really something out of the ordinary for this area,” John Caruzzo said.

Caruzzo joined others in South Philadelphia peering down the street in disbelief. He watched as investigators went in and out of the house, blocking both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

“It makes you feel uneasy. Like you think that this can’t happen until you walk outside and hear about it and then you see up live and in person and you think, ‘my God, it’s a block from your house. How could this possibly happen?’ But it does,” Carrozza said.

The alleged intrusion prompted some to think about protecting themselves.

“Maybe I should go buy a gun,” McHale said.

Arizona homeowner fatally shoots 2 intruders

A Phoenix, Arizona homeowner shot and killed two men who were attempting to break into the home Saturday morning, police said, according to reports.

When police arrived before 8 a.m. in response to several 911 calls, officers found the two alleged intruders on the ground in front of the home.

“Witnesses told the officers the shooter was inside the home next to where the men were lying,” Sgt. Philip Krynsky told FOX 10 Phoenix.

“The officers were able to successfully carry the men to await paramedics. The officers were able to communicate with the three occupants of the home and they were detained peacefully.”

The two alleged intruders were transported to separate hospitals, where they succumbed to their injuries.

Police said the people detained in connection to the shooting gave consistent stories of self-defense over the alleged attempted break-in.
The men, believed to be in their 20s, have not yet been identified.

Krynsky explained that the people detained in connection to the shooting gave consistent stories of self-defense during the investigation into the incident.

Suspect shot, killed by employee after robbing gun shop in southwest Houston

HOUSTON – A suspect was shot and killed by an employee after attempting to rob two businesses, including a gun shop on Tuesday, according to the Houston Police Department.

The incident was reported around 3:17 p.m. at Carter’s Country, located in the 11800 block of South Wilcrestt Drive and Southwest Freeway.

Before the man entered the gun shop, witnesses told police he entered a Suit Mart next door and tried to steal some items.

“The guy looked like he was a homeless person,” said witness Marcus Fomby. “Basically, they told him to just let go of the jeans or we’ll call the police.”

Leaving the Suit Mart empty-handed, police said the man then entered the gun shop with a sharp object, opened the cash register and stole the money. The employee told officers he shot the suspect in self-defense as the suspect was leaving the business.

“Once he went there (the gun shop), he actually went behind the counter (and) started ruffling through the cash register,” HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said. “He was confronted by one of the employees, at that point, one of the employees felt in fear of their safety and fired two shots, at least one struck.”

Witnesses said the man stumbled into the parking lot where he collapsed. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he later died, HPD said.

After consulting with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, the case will be presented to a grand jury for review.

Clearwater woman attacked in her bedroom, shoots intruder dead

CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — A Clearwater woman shot a man who attacked her in her bedroom Tuesday morning, according to police.

A CPD release said officers responded to the shooting on Flagler Drive at 8:49 a.m. after the woman called 911.

Officers said the woman woke up to find Justin William Wright, 26, in her bedroom before he attacked her. Police said he lived on the same road as the victim.

“She was able to reach out and call 911 during this attack, but the attack persisted,” CPD Chief Daniel Slaughter said. “At which time, she was able to retrieve a gun that she had lawfully.”

The victim managed to get a gun and fatally shot him in self-defense, according to police. Slaughter said the woman had injuries that were consistent with a self-defense situation.

“We’re going to avoid talking about too many of the details, but I can tell you she was asleep in the residence,” he said. “She was attacked. She does have injuries that are consistent with that attack.”

“We certainly don’t just chalk it up to self defense and move on,” he said. “There is an awful lot of work that has to occur. The crime scene is going to be investigated just like any other death or murder or homicide or as in this particular case, potentially a justified homicide.”

Legally armed Iowa woman shoots violent unprovoked attacker in grocery store

A legally armed woman in a Des Moine, Iowa, grocery store shot another woman who violently attacked her Sunday morning, police say.

“This was something spontaneous that unfortunately happened in that grocery store where a lot of people were grocery shopping this morning,” said Sgt. Paul Parizek of the Des Moines Police Department said of the Sunday incident, according to KCCI.

Police said suspect Kapri Lashawn Francis, 30, attacked the woman without provocation inside a Hy-Vee grocery store at about 10 a.m. local time. The unidentified woman was legally armed and fired one shot at Francis.

The suspect was shot in the leg, while a male customer was shot in the foot after the bullet ricocheted.

Francis was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily injury after receiving medical attention at a local hospital. Police said the victim fired her gun in self-defense after interviewing witnesses and reviewing store surveillance footage.

A business owner who works next to the grocery store described a chaotic scene after the gunshot was fired.

“I decided to come over here to the corner, and I was like, what’s going on?,” Michell Boyum, owner of Sun Seekers Tanning, told KCCI. “One of the employees was down here crying, and she ran to me. And she was like there was a shooting and I immediately grabbed her because she’s maybe 17 years old.”

“A lot of [staff and customers] said that they witnessed it. A couple of them said they had seen the gunshot go off. They had seen the person where they got shot at. They were shaken so bad and all I could do was be there and hold them.”

The incident sparked a strong police response, as many Americans are on edge following a series of mass shootings in recent weeks, including one at a Buffalo grocery store in May.

“We’ve certainly got a high level of awareness and preparedness for these things,” Sgt. Parizek said. “And when we hear something like this happen we treat it like it’s the real deal. And I think you saw that response up there today. There was a heavy police presence, responding with the thought that we need to save people.”

4 charged in Salt Lake home invasion that left 1 intruder dead

SALT LAKE CITY — Four people have been charged in connection with a chaotic incident in which police say they attempted to commit a home invasion robbery that ended in an exchange of gunfire and one of the intruders being killed.

About 7 p.m. on June 6, police were called to the Seasons At Pebble Creek apartment complex, 1616 W. Snow Queen Place (1675 South) in the Glendale neighborhood, on a report of a shooting. Anthony Wheatley, 19, was found with multiple gunshot wounds inside one of the units and died at the scene. Two handguns and several bullet casings were found “scattered across the living room,” according to charging documents.

Three injured people also drove away from the scene in two vehicles. Two of those victims, an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old man, had been shot. A third man, 21, was also treated at a local hospital after being hit with a gun.

Five people, including Wheatley, participated in a plan to rob and assault two brothers living at the apartment, according to newly released information in charging documents.

One of the brothers had been communicating with Malibu Rose Mawson, who “was adamant about seeing him,” charging documents state. Police later said they learned that Mawson was pretending to be romantically interested in the man so she could get in the door and then let the others in the apartment.

The brother told police he was at first hesitant, but later invited Mawson to come to his apartment. Shortly after she arrived, there was a knock at the door and three men wearing masks — later identified as Wheatley, Erik Virgen, and Preston Luke Olson, entered, the charges state. A fifth person, Jaron Andersen, waited outside the apartment in a car, police say. Wheatley and Virgen are accused of pulling guns out of their waistbands after they entered.

“At least two of the males pointed guns directly at (the brother) and began yelling at him,” according to the charging documents.

The man told police the intruders were “asking him for something and (he) did not know what they wanted.” The gunmen also said they were going to kill him and proceeded to punch, kick and pistol-whip him, the charges state. Police say Olson told them he looked around the apartment for items to steal while Wheatley and Virgen assaulted the man.

A short time later, the man’s brother arrived at the apartment. He recognized Mawson, who was his former girlfriend. He then saw the intruders pointing guns and recognized Virgen from a youth group home. The brother told police that he rushed at Virgen and tackled him, but not before being shot in the chest, according to the charges. Both brothers then fought with the group and were able to take a gun away from one of the intruders.

Shots were then exchanged, including the brothers firing at the intruders with the gun they had taken, according to court documents. Wheatley was killed in the exchange.

The two brothers ran from the apartment after the shooting and drove away. They got lost going to the hospital, however, and pulled over at 1150 S. Redwood Road to flag down another car.

A second car with Olson, who was also shot, was found at 60 S. Redwood before he was also taken to a local hospital. Mawson and Virgen fled to Cedar City, according to charging documents.

On Thursday, Andersen, 19, of Herriman; Olson, 18, of Washington; Virgen, 18, of Springville; and Mawson, 20, of Springville, were each charged with aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony; and aggravated assault, a second-degree felony.

No charges have been filed in connection with Wheatley’s death.

Victim shoots robbery suspect at The Domain

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police said a man shot someone trying to rob him Tuesday afternoon at a north Austin outdoor shopping center. The suspect then got in a car, which drove a short distance before someone called 911 to get him medical help.

Jaylyn Reed, 17, faces an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon charge. According to the affidavit, he was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound that threatened his life. KXAN reached out to his attorney and will update this story when we receive a response.

UPDATE: Suspects in string of Austin robberies arrested after Domain shooting, APD says
According to the arrest affidavit, Reed has an “extensive criminal history of aggravated robbery” and is a suspect in robberies that happened in the last few weeks.

At 4:11 p.m. the suspect came up behind two people who were walking through a parking lot at 3400 Palm Way, which is in The Domain shopping center, according to an arrest affidavit. The victims told police he had a black shirt wrapped around his face and pointed a gun at the two as he took a shopping bag and a backpack from one of them.

The suspect started getting into a car and pointed a gun at one of the victims who was yelling and walking toward him, the other pulled out a concealed pistol and shot the suspect.

According to an affidavit related to one of the people accused of being in the car, Reed dropped the gun he had at the scene. Police later said it was stolen.

The suspect left in the car, but didn’t get far before a passenger called 911 for help and police responded. The victims’ property was found in the vehicle, the affidavit said.

“Reed had been ordered by a Travis County Judge to wear an ankle monitor, which has been removed from his person,” the affidavit said.

On Tuesday, a portion of Burnet Road near Esperanza Crossing closed after a shooting, Austin police said. A police spokesperson confirmed Wednesday afternoon this was a separate shooting investigation and not related to the robbery investigation, but an affidavit filed Thursday morning indicated detectives determined they were related.

That this took so long is near infuriating. It’s doesn’t take seven (7) months – unless you’re a room temperature IQ moron – to figure out if it is, or isn’t a case of self defense.


Muncie woman is found justified by prosecutors after killing intruder

MUNCIE — A prosecutor has determined that a Muncie woman will not face charges after ruling that she acted in self-defense during a home invasion in November 2021.

According to the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office, the woman had called the police to report a home invasion. When the police arrived, they found a person who had been shot and killed along with the homeowner and her child, who were not harmed.

The prosecutor’s office released findings Wednesday that determined the homeowner was acting in defense of herself and her child when an unknown person had tried to enter her home.

In the findings, it was determined that the homeowner had called the police on two occasions, both being home invasions within six hours between Nov. 18 and Nov. 19.

After the first call, police arrived at the scene and found no one on the premises of the home.

In the second report, the homeowner reported hearing someone trying to get into her home through her kitchen window. The homeowner had an Indiana permit and legally possessed a Glock handgun, the findings said.

The homeowner raised her gun and fired one “warning shot” through the kitchen window. According to prosecutors, she immediately called 911 and reported what had happened.

After responding to the call, officers found Ke’yon Davis lying on the ground a few feet away from the kitchen window.

The Muncie Police Department conducted an investigation and found finger and/or handprints on four of the windows, a cinderblock under the window seemingly used as a stool to look inside the home and shoeprints by the window that matched Davis’ shoes.

Police found a stolen laptop and other various items in Davis’ backpack. Police do not know the motive behind Davis trying to break into the home.

If Davis had survived, police said he would have faced multiple charges including attempted burglary, attempted residential entry and theft.

Police Fatally Shoot Armed Man at Duncanville Field House; Campers Unharmed

No children were harmed, the city confirmed Monday morning.

Duncanville police said they were called to the field house at about 8:43 a.m. on reports that an armed man was inside the field house where approximately 250 children between ages 4 and 14 were inside at summer camp.

Duncanville Police Public Information Officer Michelle Arias said Monday morning that officers arrived at the field house within two minutes and entered the building looking for the gunman.

During a search of the area, police said officers found the man armed with a handgun in the gymnasium and exchanged gunfire. The man was shot by police and given medical aid before being transferred to a hospital where he later died.

Duncanville Assistant Chief of Police Matthew Stogner said Monday afternoon that the gunman entered through the lobby and had a discussion with a staff member. It was there, Stoger said, the gunman fired the first shot heard in the building.

Police have not revealed any information about the man or why he entered the building. A car in the parking lot was surrounded by crime scene tape Monday morning and was being investigated. It’s not clear if the car belongs to the gunman.

An 18-year-old camp counselor who was working with about 40 of the children told NBC 5 they were about to play a game when a gunshot boomed above the commotion in the room.

The counselor, Naomi Rodgers, said a staff member then ran into the room and closed the door saying, “We have an active shooter right now!”

“We had to move them all across the room because the building is glass and we had to find a safe space,” Rodgers said. “The shooter actually came to our door … and he said if we didn’t let him see who he wanted to see he was going to shoot the place up.”

Rodgers said the gunman then shot the glass door.

“The glass started to fall and I just started to pray then because that’s all I could do,” Rodgers said. “I know what happened at Uvalde … and I was like this cannot happen. Not today. Not today.”

Families rushed to the field house to pick up their children after shots rang out Monday morning. Parents waited anxiously to be reunited with their loved ones. Families were reunited at a nearby recreation center. NBC 5’s Katy Blakey has the story.

Police said the preliminary investigation indicates the gunman was in at least one other area where children were present but none of them were targeted or injured.

The only injury reported is the fatal shot fired by police that killed the gunman.

After the shooting, the children taking part in summer camps were moved to a nearby recreation center while the shooting was investigated.

Duncanville Police said the police shooting will be investigated by the Texas Rangers.

Tampa dating app meetup ends in robbery attempt and homicide
A woman has been arrested on a murder charge after deputies say she set up a meeting that ended with her brother being shot and killed.

A Tampa woman is facing a murder charge after a person she tried to lure into a robbery through a dating app shot and killed her brother in self defense, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials said.

Tat’yana Mekeva Gaston, 23, was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree murder in connection with the May 31 shooting, according to court documents. Gaston was released from the Hillsborough County jail the day of her arrest after she posted $15,000 bail, records show.

Police say Gaston matched with a person on the dating app BLK posing as a 22-year-old woman named “Jada.” She asked the person, who is not named in court records, to meet her at Kain Palms Apartments, where her brother, Jermon Kennard, 18, was waiting nearby to rob the person, the records state.

When a masked Kennard threatened the person with a knife, he shot Kennard with a gun that was concealed in his waistband. Kennard was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he died of gunshot wounds to his head and chest, records state.

Gaston later told police she thought her brother was going outside to sell someone an iPhone 13. She said she went outside the apartment complex to check on him and saw a male she didn’t know walking away from a gray Nissan Altima parked near the building. She couldn’t find her brother and heard five gunshots. She identified the male as “the boy” who killed her brother.

Police contradicted Gaston’s story with text messages they said they found showing she had asked her brother to come outside quickly before the person arrived.

Nearby motion sensor cameras captured the robbery and placed Kennard and Gaston at the scene, according to police. However, the knife was not visible in the footage, and the shooting was not captured on video.

Even though she didn’t pull the trigger, Gaston is still charged in her brother’s death because of a Florida statute that says when a person is killed in a felony or in an attempted felony, such as a robbery, anyone involved in the crime can be charged with murder.

Kennard was finishing his senior year of high school at Carver Exceptional Center, according to his obituary. He celebrated his 18th birthday in April.

Homeowner screamed and fired a warning shot before ultimately killing home intruder

A Mississippi homeowner shot and killed a man breaking into a residence Friday morning, police report.

Dispatchers received a 911 call just before 6 a.m. Friday morning about an unwanted person on Johnson Circle. As officers were on their way, the caller remained on the phone with 911 as the situation escalated, Adams County Sheriff TravisPatten said.

“He began to break windows around the residence and found an unlocked metal security door under the carport. He opened that door and then started trying to kick in the other door behind that. Once that door came open, the homeowner fired a warning shot first and then fired another shot which struck the suspect in the arm. The bullet proceeded on through his chest and he was pronounced dead on arrival.”

Patten added homeowners said they didn’t know Harris.

Adams County Coroner James Lee identified the man as 35-year-old Gari Harris.

“It’s another sad day in Natchez,” Lee said. “As always, my prayers go out to all of the families involved.”

The incident occurred on Johnson Circle, Patten said the man appears to have broken windows and tried to kick in the door of the residence before he was shot.

He was pronounced dead on arrival, he said

“At this time, we do not know why he was at that house,” he said. “He did the same thing at another residence up the street as well.”

He said the homeowners were taken to the sheriff’s office for questioning but it appears that they were acting defensively.

“Mississippi is a castle doctrine state,” he said. “While this subject was beating on the windows and doors, the homeowner screamed several times for him to leave making it clear that he was not wanted there. Even after he fired the warning shot, he continued trying to get into the residence.”
