    Armed Citizen: Falls man shoots burglar, Falls police say

    A 52-year-old city man shot a 22-year-old man in the chest Wednesday evening, but police said he is not expected to be charged after investigators learned he was likely defending himself from a burglar.

    The younger man, Parrish C. Spencer Jr., of Falls Street, broke the window of a side door and kicked in the door about 5:30 p.m. to get inside the two-story home of Willie J. Carson in the 500 block of 25th Street, police said.

    After Spencer got inside and went upstairs, Carson shot him, police said.

    Spencer is in stable condition today at Erie County Medical Center.

    Investigators found broken plexiglass at the scene.

    Captain Ernest C. Palmer, chief of detectives, said Carson was not charged but the case has been turned over to the Niagara County district attorney's office for further investigation.

    Charges may be filed against Spencer, Palmer added.

    Well, it's only been partially served, next should be a hefty prison sentence. Maybe after being Bubba's babe for 15 years he will come out a new ''man''.

    Having him survive and do jail time is more of a punishment to him VS not surviving and his family suffering. I think having him survive is also easier on the man defending his house.

    Sometimes I think people are to quick to want to fatally wound rather then stopping the threat which seemed to have happened in this case.

    I agree.No one wants to kill another human being but some times it becomes necessary. Lets hope none of us find our selves in this situation.

    This is the unfortunate reality.


    Wouldn't of happened if he'd used a .45

    Well if he does not pull through, and happens to die at least he won't be a repeat offender!

    The nice thing about Niagara County is that it's pretty easy to get a pistol permit and apparently they know how to handle their guns. I've seen a bunch of similar posts to this one from Niagara County
    Colt New Agent, Dan Wesson V-Bob, Glock 19,20SF, 23, 26, 27, 29, 30SF, 36, Kahr P380 w/CT, PM9, PM45, CW9(SOLD), Kel-Tec P32, P3AT, PF9(SOLD), Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II, Stainless Pro TLE/RL II (SOLD), Rohrbaugh R9s, Ruger LCP w/CT, LCR, SP101 S&W J-Frame 638 w/CT, M&P 340 w/CT, Walther PPK/S

    Unfortunately he is already repeatedly offending by racking up a medical bill that is going to be footed by the taxes.

    So, investigate charges on a man defending his home, and consider charges against a man who committed home invasion. Wonderful system there.
