    Man Breaks Up Barfight - Leads To Home Invasion

    Homeowner Kills Suspect In Home Invasion - News Story - WSB Atlanta

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Authorities say a homeowner who apparently was targeted in a home invasion Sunday night exchanged gunfire with a suspect who was killed.

    Randy Christian, a Jefferson County sheriff's spokesman, said the shooting death of 23-year-old Eric Moore of Birmingham appeared to be justified. Moore died a short time later at a Birmingham hospital.

    Christian said the investigation determined Moore was the masked gunman who kicked in the door of a residence in Forestdale and fired shots at the occupant. The homeowner was not hit.

    Christian said the homeowner broke up a fight Saturday night at the Platinum Club in Birmingham that Moore had been involved in. He said Moore had inquired about the homeowner's address before the home was invaded.
    Glad the homeowner was prepared. It would be nice if whoever gave the homeowner's address to Moore was charged with an accessory charge, but I am sure that is just wishful thinking.

    I don't think I would get involved trying to stop a bar fight if I was directly involved/threatened, just be a good witness if necessary.

    It is tough to know how it transpired, but likely the bad guy said something like "I just want to thank him for breaking up the fight before somebody got hurt".

    Yeah right.

    Point is, you are correct the person who gave the address is NOT going to be charged as an accessory. At least the bad guy got what he had coming.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    the homeowner broke up a fight Saturday night at the Platinum Club
    Hmmmm.. Wonder what kind of a club THAT is?

    If you ever do happen to wake up suddenly and find that you have innocently wandered into a place like the "The Platinum Club", my advice is to avoid getting involved in any sort of fights or disputes. Maintain a low profile... You'll live longer and happier

    Now THAT's thinking reserved for reasonable moments of common sense! Best advice for ANY situation like this one!

    Glad all ended up good for the homeowner.

    Question

    "Moore had inquired about the homeowner's address before the home was invaded."

    Inquire of whom? Someone in LE? Other public official?

    Was the home owner "unlisted", in phonebook?

    Another reason for keeping addresses out of public records????

    Need some details.

    Break up a bar fight ... become the target of a murderer. No good deed goes unpunished. Yet another example of how junkyard dog fights are best left uncontested.
