    Suspect and Victim Shot During Home Invasion in Montgomery, AL

    WSFA TV Montgomery, AL - Suspect, Victim Shot in Apparent Home Invasion

    Witnesses say three men kicked down the door to a Montgomery man's home and only two made it out without being shot.

    Montgomery police responded to the shooting in the 2700 block of Cherry Street around 6:30 Monday evening and found 22-year-old Tavaris Trammer lying on the floor with gunshot wounds to the neck and leg.

    The resident was also shot in the arm.

    According to MPD spokesman Captain Huey Thornton witnesses reported that three men kicked in the door, attempted to rob the resident and then shot him in the arm.

    The resident then used a 9mm handgun and shot Mr. Trammer in the neck and leg.

    The other two suspects fled the scene, one ran out the front door and the other jumped out a window.

    Trammer was taken to Jackson Hospital where he is in serious but stable condition. Doctors say he may be paralyzed from the neck down.

    The resident was also treated for his wounds.

    Meanwhile, a Robbery 1st Degree warrant has been issued against Trammer.

    At this time there is no other information available on the other two suspects.

    If you have any information you are urged to call the Secret Witness line at 262-4000 or the Montgomery Police Department at 241-2651 immediately.
    Hopefully the victim will be shielded from a lawsuit from Trammer and his family.

    Another robbery gone good! Glad to see the homeoewner wasn't killed and that he protected himself and his property.
    That guy, back east, who invented Kwanza in the 60's, also started the trend to some "creative and colorful" names. Guess I'd be mad all the time too with some of the monikers those kids have had put on them.

    Glad he's not dead and the BG's didn't get anything.

    Alabama has the Castle law, the homeowner can not be sued by the felon.

    Since the BG was injured in the comission of a crime he can not hold any other party liable for his injuries.

    Yes, but the state gets to take care of Trammer for the rest of his life if he is a quadraplegic. That should be around a hundred thousand per year.

    Though I fully agree with the first half of your statement... I am somewhat offended by the tone of your comments in the latter half. Comments like that have no place in this forum as it is comprised of citizens from all walks of life and backgrounds. The above may seem like a rant, but I couldn't resist.

    Congrats to the homeowner for taking the shots and living to tell about it.
