One more time:
Homicide Unit detectives are investigating a self-defense claim following Saturday’s 3:30 a.m. fatal shooting of DeCarlos Groves, 25, inside the Corner Mart, 2600 Clarksville Pike.
A review of the store’s video surveillance shows Groves producing a handgun during an apparent robbery attempt. Groves then jumped over the counter, landing on top of the store clerk, Peter Fang, 20. Fang retrieved a weapon from his shirt pocket which discharged as Groves landed on him, striking Groves. As the struggle continued, additional shots were fired from Fang’s gun and Groves fell to the floor. Fang called police. Groves died at the scene.
Not to prejudice the thing, of course, but “Guess The Scumbag’s Efnicity” will be a slam-dunk.
Given the clear video evidence of the event, Our Hero will be sent on his way with an attaboy from the po-po. And from my Readers, too.
Quote of the day:
“It was a robbery that didn’t go well for the robbers.” — San Antonio Police Chief William McManus
Seems as though a man went to draw money from an ATM, whereupon two choirboys approached him to ask him to donate to their church fund*. Apparently, they used the wrong terminology and body language, because our ATM cardholder shot them both dead on the spot.
*according to their relatives, no doubt.
…and a Happy Father’s Day to you too. Ignore all the “allegeds”. This was absolutely justified.
A Wilson’s Mills, North Carolina, father shot and killed an alleged intruder Sunday night after the suspect allegedly accosted the man’s 11-year-old daughter.
Details at the link. And if this story doesn’t give you the Warm & Fuzzies, we can’t be friends.
At around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, the unnamed homeowner was alerted by his Ring surveillance system that two men were attempting to break into his garage. The camera footage revealed two individuals with backpacks walking into his garage and shortly after, they were seen walking away with a box of tools. The homeowner, who had armed himself, approached the suspects to order them to leave his property.
A deadly shootout transpired when one of the suspects drew a weapon and started firing, hitting the homeowner in the leg. The resident returned fire, hitting one of the suspects multiple times.
Then, the good news:
The Houston Police Department noted that the injured suspect fled through the broken fence and was found at a nearby stairwell. Despite the arrival of first responders and immediate transportation to the hospital, the suspect succumbed to his injuries.
One less candidate for the “official” justice system.
The only sour note is that Choirboy #2 managed to escape with his life. Next time for the win, we can only hope.
Sent to me by several of you, this welcome news:
According to investigators, the chain of events began when Serigny first targeted a car parked in the driveway, setting off the alarm and drawing the homeowners’ attention. The residence was equipped with multiple security cameras, which captured footage of the suspect engaging in bizarre behavior, such as eating grass and striking his chest.
Video evidence showed Serigny subsequently attempting to break the glass door of the home. At this point, the homeowner discharged a single shot, causing the intruder to collapse. However, Serigny managed to regain his footing, puncturing another hole in the door before eventually breaking it open. The homeowner responded by firing three to four additional shots, ultimately leading to Serigny’s death.
I know, I know: the choirboy was mentally disturbed and deserved the proper treatment.
Which he got.
From the Great State of Texas comes this news:
A liquor store clerk in Leander, Texas, shot and fatally wounded a 22-year-old man allegedly stealing alcohol on Wednesday.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that police were called about a theft at the store, then a confrontation between the store clerk and one of the three alleged thieves led to shots being fired.
Twenty-two-year-old Johnny Cabrera was struck by the clerk’s gunfire.
