    Home Invasion


    FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- An autopsy was scheduled for Monday on a Fairfield man who was shot Saturday night during an apparent home invasion robbery.

    The Solano County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 48-year-old Timothy Banks.

    Fairfield police said Banks was fatally shot and his 17-year-old son also was shot in their home in the 200 block of Holly Drive.

    Lt. Al Bagos said Banks' wife called police around 11:34 p.m. Saturday. She said she awoke to find her husband and an intruder struggling over a rifle in the upstairs bedroom. The gun discharged, striking Banks in the head and torso and the intruder fled, Bagos said.

    The teen was found shot downstairs and he was taken to the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he was in fair condition, Bagos said.

    Police said it appears there were two intruders. One of them is a dark-skinned male approximately 17 years old who was wearing dark clothing, Bagos said. Police are investigating a motive for the shootings.
    Just another illustration on how things can go very wrong, very quickly.

    So, you are the wife in this scenario. You keep a loaded revolver beside the bed, and wake up to find your husband struggling with the BG.

    How do you respond?

    Stick the barrel under the badguys chin and pull the trigger?

    After whole heartedly begging for him to stop his illegal actions of course....

    grab the revolver and go over there pointing it at him.
    if he is struggling with your husband then you should be able to get close enough to hit him and not your husband.

    I rush the pair and fire point-blank or contact on BG when husband isn't directly behind BG. If husband is behind BG, I fire into the side of BG's head or COM. Repeat until threat is not a threat. Reload, call 911.

    I think both JD and Grady have the right idea. Only thing I would add is now that the threat is neutralized, it's time for me to fix some coffee.

    Makes me want to rehearse a plan with my wife. So far, we have good locks and dogs. The dogs are the early warning system. Unfortunately, I don't wake up as fast as I used to.

    I think my wife would probably stand behind me and shoot through my back and into the badguys chest.

    Actually she would go up to him and make contact with the muzzle against the BG's body shooting away from me in case round exits.

    More than likely in that situation she would be shooting into his ribs. If it missed the heart or major vessels, it would probably at least hit both lungs giving him bilateral hemo/pneumothoraxes.

    If she was afraid to shoot the head or chest (for fear of hitting me) then the legs would do. Anything would make him easier to fight...

    Sounds like the GG went to investigate a noise with a long gun; not wise on two levels.

    My wife has her own guns and would shoot the POS if the dog hadn't eaten him, scan for others, reload, then call 911.

    I am with JD and grady. Up to the head and bang. No shout, not 'drop it'. Just threat elimination. it's not a game and there is no reset button.

    No sound, no questions, no commands...just a bang to the BG's head...repeat as necessary...call 911.

    Stay armed...stay safe!
