    I love a story with a happy ending. Could have been happier with three dead perps.

    33% isn't good enough. The guy needs some range time.

    Should have used a stork if they were going to air lift the idiot.
    You do something against the law, why does society have to pay out big time?

    It isn't like the nearest hospital was hours away.
    Normal ambulance should have sufficed.
    Glad the homeowner got at least one, and the other sounds as though he stuck around for his buddy who got popped.

    That young man was airlifted to Ben Taub Hospital
    Hopefully in Tel Aviv, Israel and DOA.

    The third fled the scene once gunfire erupted.
    You think? Journalism in decline I'd say.

    Investigators are looking into whether these suspects were responsible for any earlier incidents in the area
    Good solid bet, I'd say.

    At least it has a happier than it could have ending.

    I don't have stats but seems home invasions on the rise esp with multiple attackers. A scary thought to take on more than one. Will practice up with multiple targets!

    Exactly the outcome we hope for.

    Two of three perps in custody, that's not bad. Trouble is, there is now one disgruntled perp on the streets who knows darned well where the guy lives. Caution is due.


    If as reported, then each of the perps in question should be charged with the full truck load. Costs of the first responders and hospital care, costs to the GG, damage to the residence, costs in recompense for the waste of time, and all the rest. Sock it to 'em. All three of them. And if the one perp on a slab expires, then charge the remaining two with felony murder.

    Hmm, trigger control, sight acquisition, trigger control, sight acquisition........
    Practice makes perfect!
    No one really knows what is going to go on in one of these situations....we all hope, and hopefully practice and think about what you would do, and how we will be able to handle the consequences of the outcome...
    But we don't. So good to the situation that ends in the 'victims' favor, but never let your own thoughts about what happened be prejudicial in your response to one that you haven't experienced.
    Just sayin'...

    At least the homeowner came out of it relatively ok. Two bg's out of the equation and one on the run. Heck he'll probably try something else and get nabbed or shot.

    Probably would have got all three except perhaps he judged in those seconds before he shot that the one he wounded would turn his life around with a little nudge, and the one he let get away is in the process of becoming Quanell X2.5 turbo charged. The other guy he just figured was a lost cause.

    Mustnt take away those second third and 33rd chances ya know.

    Hay now this guy, Mister CCW9mm thinks on his feet!!

    Some years ago I got hurt at the Park where I was working at the time. I got hurt pretty good or at least I was plenty scared I was hurt worse so I went with option 2 which meant going to the ER in an ambulance Code 3. How come I didn't get a chopper??? The LZ where I was could have landed 6 Huey's at the same time!!

    I'm with CCW on this.

    I'm also all for the GG getting in some serious range time. One out of 3 BGs is lousy in my book. Plus the BG who got away is still a viable threat for the GG.
