    Utah, A woman knocks on the door...

    Man shoots and kills home-invasion robber
    December 14th, 2007 @ 12:00pm

    Nicole Gonzales and Tom Callan reporting

    Police are looking for two suspects in a home invasion robbery. A third suspect is dead after the homeowner shot him.

    West Valley Police say it started just before 10:30 last night when a woman knocked on the door of a residence near 3500 South and 4400 West. Then two men forced their way into the home.

    Three people were home at the time -- the homeowner, his wife and their baby, who was sleeping in another room.

    The invaders taped the wife to a chair while they forced the homeowner around the house at gunpoint to collect valuables. At some point the homeowner was able to overpower one of the robbers, grab his gun, and kill him.

    Police say the homeowner called for help. "It was the owner that called us and said, 'These guys broke into my house, and I shot one of them,'" said Lt. Lamont Cox of the West Valley Police Department.


    Now police are looking for the second robber, who fled, and the woman who knocked on the door.

    Sgt. Chad Evans said, "Because of what happened last night, we believe he's probably more scared and on the run than looking to do something like this again. We're hoping that's the case."

    Police have not yet identified the suspect who was killed. They do know from tattoos that the man was in a gang. Because of that, police aren't releasing the victims' names.

    "Just in the far chance that any friends or suspects were interested in any type of retaliation," Sgt. Evans said.

    The male suspect on the loose is believed to be armed. The homeowner has not been charged with anything, but the case is still under investigation.

    Smart decision by the police.

    Another one bites the dust,
    Another one bites the dust.
    And another one's gone,
    And another one's gone,
    Another one bites the dust.
    Hey Hey!!

    Sure am glad that none of the people that were supposed to be in the house was hurt. As for the people that were not supposed to be there, shame that only 1 of them can't run away to do more crimes in the future. 1 out of 3. That is 33%. That is higher than the average sucess rate for deer hunters in most states. Perhaps the other 2 will get theirs the next home they invade. And you know they will try again.
    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.

    wow, they actually did it right and not release the victim's names. this gives me hope somewhat. that is probably one of the worst situation one can be in... bad guys in your house mixed in with your family. I'd like to buy that "homeowner" a beer. i wonder if he gets to keep the pistol...

    They should simply refuse to release the victims' names under general principles of honor and decency. Shouldn't have to be only under some additional, superfluous circumstance. The mere fact they were assaulted and nearly killed, combined with the fact that the criminals know who/where they are, should be enough.
