    GOOD: Two Crime Victims Turn The Tables - Atlanta, GA

    Two crime victims kill their attackers in metro Atlanta | ajc.com

    Two crime victims in metro Atlanta fought back on Saturday and killed their attackers, authorities reported.

    In Cobb County, police said a man shot in his own garage grabbed the would-be robber’s gun and shot and killed the man.
    Recent headlines:

    In Atlanta, police said a woman fatally stabbed a home-invasion robbery suspect who broke into her apartment while her 11-year-old child slept.

    No charges have been filed in either case.

    Cobb police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce said Richard Ellis, 38, of Cauthen Court in Marietta was getting out of his car in his garage late Saturday night when he was approached by a man with a handgun. The man demanded money from Ellis and shot him in the leg, police said. Pierce said the incident was not a random crime and that the two men had “previous contact” in the past.

    “Within moments of being shot and while the male is briefly distracted, Ellis grabbed the gun and a fight ensued in the driveway of the residence over control of it,” Pierce said. “Detectives believe that Ellis was eventually able to wrestle the weapon away from the male before shooting him twice with it.”

    The wounded man, identified as John Harrison, 33, of Palmetto, ran to the front porch of a nearby house and collapsed, Pierce said. Harrison was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital but died of his injuries. Ellis was treated at the hospital for his wound and released.

    In Atlanta, police said a home invasion suspect was killed by his would-be victim.

    Authorities said the resident, whose 11-year-old child was asleep inside the apartment, stabbed the suspect after he burst into the home shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday.

    Police said when he made a few sudden movements toward the woman, she stabbed him in the chest.

    The suspect was identified as 34-year-old Jerome Davis of Atlanta. Authorities did not identify the woman and did not charge her in the man’s death.
    Sounds like Mr. Ellis needs to up his SA. Tough woman to stab an intruder in the chest. Would've been better if she had a handgun available, that way she wouldn't have to get so close.
