Armed Homeowner Kills 2 Home Invaders - Family Confused

2nd teen shot in break-in dies | courier-journal | The Courier-Journal They broke into a home and injured the homeowner. He shot both of them. One died at the scene. The other died a few hours later in a local hospital.

Simple enough. Break into enough homes and you will meet an armed homeowner. If you are really unlucky that may happen on your first attempt.

The authorities are still hoping to charge someone with something, so the state's attorney will review the situation.

One of the dead guy's family "wants answers" to the question, "How did this happen?" They want the "true story," which says to me that they don't believe what has been said so far. Seems simple to me. OK, he was - on some level - trying to get his act together, but he was associating with goof-ball with a lot of history with the police. Sad, but the good-guy, the homeowner, is alive.

Self-defense is a human right.
