    WLBT 3 - Jackson, MS: Resident Opens Fire on Apartment Burglars

    Resident Opens Fire on Apartment Burglars

    Suspected Burglar Shot

    One man is hospitalized after being shot during a home burglary. It happened just after noon Thursday at the Elton Park Apartments on Elton Road in south Jackson.

    Police say a tenant in Building 11 came home to find his apartment door kicked in. The resident then approached his home and yelled for anyone inside to come out. Authorities say when three men ran out of the apartment, the resident started firing shots. The suspected burglars escaped through a hole in a fence surrounding the complex.

    Police later found one of the culprits hiding in a nearby culvert with two gunshot wounds. Paramedics took him to University Medical Center, but the other two got away.

    Jackson police commander Jeremiah Jones says officers happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    "The ironic part about it is the same time this was occurring, we were doing a sting operation on the other side on Raymond Road," Jones said. "(It involved) another house burglary suspect that had been breaking into houses attempted to sell things."

    Commander Jones says the three burglary suspects had broken into another apartment at Elton Park around the same time.

    Authorities have not released the names of anyone involved, and the resident has not been charged with a crime.
    Obviously things are different down south. Here in CT, if I were to take similar action I would be cuffed and stuffed.

    I was in college in FL with a middle-aged, loud-mouth, anti-gun woman from CT when they strengthened the FL castle doctrine law. This woman was incredulous as to the fact that a homeonwer was allowed to shoot a burgler or a person threatening them in their own home.

    Must be something in the water up in the DC to Mass. corridor. That's the only way I can figure of explaining it.
