    Career Felon killed by homeowner

    A man who served at least five stints in Ohio prisons was identified yesterday as the armed intruder who was fatally shot by a Franklinton homeowner Saturday night.

    John Anthony Ross, 33, died of a single gunshot wound to the upper body, Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis said yesterday.

    Ross was carrying a handgun when he kicked in the back door of a house at 962 Sullivant Ave. about 8:35 p.m., police said.

    He was confronted by the 79-year-old homeowner, Virgil R. Lovejoy, who wrestled with Ross before pulling his own gun and firing one shot.

    Police said Ross, who fled the house and collapsed in a nearby alley, died less than an hour later at Mount Carmel West hospital.

    Lovejoy declined to comment when he was contacted at his home yesterday.

    Police listed Ross’ address as 194 S. Yale Ave., but on Nov. 27 his mother told officers responding to a report that he kicked in her back door that she had evicted him, according to an offense report.

    In early November, police were called to the Yale Avenue address on a report that Ross had cut his arms after taking cocaine and ecstasy.

    Ross spent four years in the Noble Correctional Institution after a robbery conviction in Fairfield County in 2000, Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction records show.

    He was sent to state prisons from Franklin County in 1994, 1996, 1997 and 2006 for convictions that included breaking and entering, receiving stolen property and theft.

    Maybe he should have recieved appropriate punishments for his original crimes, then he would have been in jail. It doesn't really matter, he won't be robbing anyone else anyways. Good job by the homeowner, even though I probably would have tried to aviod the wrestiling stage, but do what ya gotta do..

    Another one bites the dust. HEY HEY
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    See capital punishment is a deterrent! This BG has been deterred from further crime.

    Glad the 79 year old citizen was savvy enough to be armed. All too often this could have ended way different.

    Some people don't change. It seems like when they go to jail they just get an education on how to commit a crime better. It's a shame that people like Mr. Lovejoy has to be the one to put this dirt bag out of business.

    Gotta love the prison system. Good news is one less BG and the good people of Ohio don't have to pay for this POS anymore.
