They thought robbing a house sounded like a good idea. They were wrong. 20-year-old man shot and killed by homeowner during burglary attempt, Radcliff police say.
Kobie Long, 20, and another man forced their way into the door of a home on North Wilson Road and were shot by the homeowner, Radcliff Police said.
Long was killed, but the other man is in critical condition at University Hospital.
Radcliff Police Capt. Willie Wells says that the shooting is apparently justified by way of self-defense.
“You have a responsibility to protect yourself and your family in whatever means possible to do that,” Wells said. “So, long as you can articulate that your actions were in defense of yourself or your property, then I think you would be justified.”
Definitely not New Jersey.
Self-defense is a human-right, and in Kentucky, it is your legal right.
It nearly cost him a lot. Lexington homeowner shoots at suspect.
The ex-boyfriend shows up at the home of the current boyfriend at 4:30 in the morning and starts banging on the door. Things go downhill for him from there.
The homeowner came out and started arguing with the suspect.
That’s when police say the homeowner fired several shots at the man in self-defense.
It isn’t clear if he was hit by any bullets or not.
He could have been wounded. He could have been killed. All because of the “How dare you live without me” attitude that all too many people, both men and women, seem to embrace.
Self-defense is a human-right.
He picked the wrong store to try and rob. Store clerk derails would-be Lexington robbery, fires shot at suspect.
Robbing a convenience store at 12:30 in the morning is almost cliche. Didn’t work out the way he expected.
When he started to come around the counter, however, police say the store clerk reacted, pulling out a handgun and firing a shot at the would-be robber.
Cops are still looking for the bad-guy.
There isn’t often video. Kentucky homeowner shoots at intruders.
A violent home invasion was caught on camera when four men burst through the door of a home in Kentucky, but they soon discovered the man inside was already armed. The home security cameras caught what happened next.
Which is that the 4 bad guys ran like rabbits.
According to another story on this incident, one of the 4 bad guys was shot, and he is in custody. The other three are still on the run.
Self-defense is a Human-right.
How would you respond to an intruder, in an 11-year-old girl’s room who stripped to his underwear? Homeowner shoots home invader who undressed to his underwear, Louisville police say.
The main confrontation with the homeowner happened in the kitchen.
A male homeowner demanded Oliver leave and got into a physical fight with him, injuring his hand, police said.
He yelled to his girlfriend for help. She fetched a gun from the bedroom which he then used to shoot Oliver multiple times.
He was taken to a local hospital, and then to the county lockup.
Self-defense, and defense of family, is a human-right.
Somewhere along the way, Americans lost respect for human-life. 2 arrested after clerk’s nephew shot trying to stop man from stealing beer from Oldham County Circle K.
This isn’t about self-defense, or about how cooperating with criminals will not ensure your safety. This is about the collapse of civilized society.
They were stealing a 30 pack of Bud Light. A clerk’s nephew tried to stop them, so they shot him.
My local grocery store doesn’t stock 30 packs, but their website says they sell a 24 pack for $18 and change. Even if we think the Circle K was charging $30 bucks, to shoot someone over 30 dollars shows something about the state of civilization. They didn’t kill the guy they shot, but they could have. It didn’t seem to bother them at all.
They went home and hid the beer in the woods and buried the gun in the yard. (Not the sharpest tools in the shed.)
Police arrested 18-year-old Austin Ransdell of Crestwood and 19-year-old Andrew Tetidrick of La Grange. Both are charged with robbery and assault.
They face 20 years in prison, and they didn’t even get to drink any of the beer. The case was found unopened.
That doesn’t mean they can’t be a threat. They knew him, and he attacked them. Update: Coroner identifies man killed during attempted home invasion.
The gun-hating-Left loves to warn you that you might shoot someone you know, but what they miss is that you are more likely to have trouble with people you know.
When they got to the scene, the homeowners told deputies the suspect had been hanging out at their home when an argument broke out. We’re told they then asked him to leave. The homeowners say he did, but he came back, forced his way into the home and attacked them.
He apparently didn’t know them that well, or he might have predicted their reaction. The homeowner shot and killed him.
The investigation continues. Self-defense is a human-right.
