Police say suspects DeCarlos J. Wells, and Michael Ellis, both in their early 20's, showed up to the home, masked, with guns, demanding that the homeowner go inside.I imagine they will try to prosecute the homeowner for something.
When Lonnie Tinsley refused, he says the robbers beat him with a gun, but Tinsley fought back. He dragged the alleged criminals into the house, pulled out his own gun and started shooting. Tinsley's gunshots did hit one of the suspects. DeCarlos wells was shot in the lower back and went through surgery at Methodist Medical Center. Police are waiting for him to recover before arresting him.
