    Homeowner Shoots Two Intruders

    Police: Home invasion victim shoots, kills suspects 7:50 AM | Local News | News for Charlotte, North Carolina | WCNC.com | Top Stories

    HICKORY, N.C. - Police say two suspects are dead after an attempted home invasion.

    Catawba County sheriff’s deputies say two men dressed in black and carrying pistols forced their way into a home on 33rd Avenue in Hickory around 11:00 last night. According to a sheriff’s official, the homeowner was armed with his own gun, and shot the suspects. Both suspects were pronounced dead at the scene.

    Major Coy Reid with the sheriff’s office said both men were wearing masks and latex gloves.

    At this time, no arrests have been made.
    Good on the homeowner for being prepared and having the determination to do what needed to be done.

    I just love reading good news for a change! Maybe if enough home invaders get nailed by homeowners, they will take the hint and stop.

    Now this is how ALL home invasions/robberies should end...then we'd have less of them...

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Any time, any place.

    Hm! Hickory, NC is certainly not big city at pop 40K, but it is the
    center of NC's 4th largest Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) with
    population of 350K.

    Nearest larger city is Charlotte about 50 miles distant. Per
    capita income about $30,500, 4.6% unemployment.
    One demographic that jumps out, though, is home ownership, with 55% owner occupied units and 45% renter occupied units.

    On the other hand,

    "The Hickory Metro area has been named the 10th Best Place to Live and Raise a Family in the United States by Reader's Digest. The
    Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton M.S.A. has also been named the 3rd best M.S.A. in
    the country for Business Costs by Forbes Magazine. Business North Carolina
    magazine also reported that Catawba County's largest city, Hickory, was the
    8th best city in the state for its quality of life. "

    ------------------

    Any time, any place. Carry in the home? Absolutely!

    "...no arrests have been made at this time."

    That statement bothers me.

    Yea, that's a stupid statement!! How could you be charged when 2 BG, armed breaks into your house??
    That had to come from the media, I can't see the PD saying that!

    I think that statement is an automatic response when a liberal types a news story.........problem program into his signature.
