    GOOD: Homeowner Fends Off Two Invaders - Amarillo, TX

    KFDA - NewsChannel 10 / Amarillo, TX: newschannel10.com - Police: Homeowner Fatally Shoots Alleged Robber

    Police say two men attempted to break into a home on the 4100 block of South Hughes in Amarillo this morning.

    The homeowner, police say, used a long gun to shoot one of the suspects. The other alleged robber managed to run away.

    When police arrived at the home, 4117 S. Hughes, they found one of the suspected robbers lying on the ground with several gun shot wounds. They attempted to resuscitate him, but were unsuccessful.

    Police are now searching for the second man involved in the invasion. Police have a vague description of him. He is a black male and was last seen wearing black clothing.

    Witnesses say both suspected robbers have broken into the home up to four times in the past.

    Police call this the first homicide of 2009.

    The owner of the home went to the police station, as part of the investigation. But police have not made any arrests.

    Police have tentatively identified the dead man, 22 years of age, but are waiting to notify the next of kin before releasing his name.

    The Amarillo Special Crimes Unit is still investigating the block of South Hughes where the shooting occurred. They also closed off a section of Southwest 42nd Avenue.
    Wow, 4 break-ins in the same home. Glad to see the homeowner was able to correct this little problem.

    Something sounds fishy about this. 4 break-ins at the same house. Something just doesn't add up.

    Later information discloses that the "long gun" actually was a shotgun. These bad guys broke the glass on their entry, and ignored warnings of the owner. That is when the room mate came around and blasted them with the shotgun.

    The surviving bad guy also was shot. He has now been arrested and charged with burglary.
