    Good: Off duty cop shoots home invaders

    Guess they picked the wrong door to kick in and got what they deserved.


    Cop Kills Suspected Home Invader | WKBW - TV Buffalo, New York | Local News

    A group of apparent home invaders met their match when they tried to kick in the door at an off-duty Buffalo police officer's home. The cop shot two of the men, killing one of them. It happened just before 9:30 Wednesday morning. The Buffalo police officer who lives on Burlington Avenue in the northeast part of the city says he heard people trying to kick in the side door of his home, so he grabbed his gun and fired. "They were confronted by the off-duty officer and got shot," says Chief Dennis Richards of the Buffalo Police Department.

    The off-duty officer then called for help and officers from Buffalo's E district arrived to find two suspects shot and called in homicide detectives. One suspected burglar was pronounced dead at the Erie County Medical Center. He is a 36-year-old man but his name has not yet been released. A second suspected burglar is in critical condition. He's identified as 33-year-old Anthony Creamer. A third suspect, who was not shot, was arrested after driving Creamer to the hospital. Police are charging 22-year-old Tyrone Sayles with first degree burglary.

    "It's an off-duty officer who shot the individuals and we're commencing our investigation as is standard practice we're not identifying the officer at this time," says Chief Richards. Eyewitness News has learned the name of the off-duty officer, but due to concern over the officer's safety we are choosing not to reveal his name at this point.

    The Buffalo Police Professional Standards Division will conduct their own investigation. That is part of the normal procedure when an officer is involved in a shooting. Police are not saying at this point if the suspects were armed.
    There are other unanswered questions at this point too including whether the suspects knew the officer or if they randomly chose that house. The off-duty officer is now on administrative leave.

    Score 1 for the good guys! Hopefully they won't drag him through an unnecessarily long investigation!

    Now how about regular citizens have the same opportunity to defend him/herself?

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
