    Good: Tucker man shoots intruder

    Elderly Tucker man kills intruder

    If a DeKalb County home invasion suspect thought an elderly Tucker couple would make an easy target Tuesday night, he thought wrong.
    Now the suspect is dead, and DeKalb police say the 81-year-old homeowner will not face charges for shooting and killing the man.
    DeKalb police spokesman J.T. Ware said that about 11 p.m., the unidentified suspect, who appeared to be in his 20s, broke into the home on Zemory Drive, in a neighborhood off Lawrenceville Highway.
    "The suspect, as he was entering the location, made enough noise to arouse the suspicions of the homeowner, and he was able to locate his weapon and load it," Ware said.
    The homeowner confronted the suspect, and after a brief struggle, shot and killed the man, Ware said.
    He said the homeowner, whose name has not been released, was hospitalized for treatment of wounds suffered during the struggle, but is expected to be okay. The man's 78-year-old wife was not injured.
    Ware said police do not plan to charge the homeowner.
    "He defended his home, defended his wife," Ware said. "He did what everybody would hope to do in a situation like that."

    That is great. Glad to see him and his wife are o.k. Good for the paper for not releasing the names of the couple.

    Looks like the idiot suspect/criminal/thug decided to take the weapon away from the elderly gentleman. Thanks to the gentleman for purifying the gene pool!! Glad everything turned out okay for him and his wife.
    Good on the newspaper for not printing the exact address but bad for giving such good directions to the general area. Should have read something like this,"A DeKalb County man protected his wife and home from a home invasion by killing the criminal. No charges can be filed for the removal of this criminal from society. Our Thanks to the gentleman for making our country a safer place to live and prayers for him for the injuries he suffered." Of course, it will be a cold day in much warmer climes before that happens but the gentleman has been praised and thanked and the thug has been denigrated!!

    Yep, heard about this one today. It is on the other side of the metro area. Apparently it got up close and personal with a struggle for the gun. Glad it went good for the elderly folks. Maybe it will serve a notice that not even our older folks are going to roll over and be victims.
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    It just hit me that this guy lived in Tucker. I lived in Decatur for a little while. Just down the road. I lived in an area called North Druid Hills. Anyone know how close I was to this break in?
