    "One dead after botched home invasion"

    Love the headline. Jeesh...

    This is a couple weeks old but just found it.

    Deputies say at least one gunman was killed in an early-morning home invasion near Wagram.

    Anthony Martin, of Kale Street in Wagram, was shot to death in the failed robbery attempt while two others masked men fled, according to Shep Jones. The sheriff's department did not have Martin's age.

    Investigators say one of the robbers was 40-year old William Anthony Strickland, according to Jones. The last-known address for Strickland is 9539 Springview Road in Charlotte. Jones would not say how Strickland was identified as a suspect.

    Warrants were obtained for Stricklands arrest on charges of robbery, burglary and felony assault.

    Investigators have not released information on the third suspect.

    Jones said the trio entered the home of 62-year Edmond Cooper at 23296 Wagram Street at about 12:30 a.m. through the back door, which had been left unlocked.

    Debbie Cooper, Edmond's wife, was still up and a suspect knocked her out by striking her over the head. The men then entered the room of the Coopers' 15-year old son. The suspects used ziploc ties to restrain the juvenile. The three men then entered the hallway of the residence, according to Jones.

    "Edmond Cooper came out of the bedroom with a gun," Jones said. "He fired several shots, hitting one of the suspects."

    He said the two suspects left standing returned fire, while fleeing from the residence.

    "Mr. Cooper was shot in the hand," Jones said.

    Getting shot in the hand happens more often than we'd like. In a gunfight, many combatants focus on the weapon threat, and shoot at the weapon.

    Martin was dead when emergency personnel arrived on the scene, according to Jones. Edmond Cooper was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

    Jones said the two suspects may have fled with $1,000 from the residence.

    "It shows the times we're living in when families are at home, where they are supposed to be safe, and they are violated," Jones said.

    Wagram police have assisted the sheriff's department in this case.

    If you know the whereabouts of William Anthony Strickland or have information on the third suspect, contact the Scotland County Sheriff's Department at 276-3385 or anonymously report your tip to Scotland Crime Stoppers at 291-3333.

    Congrats to Mr. Cooper (we share the same age category)...too bad he didn't make instant funeral arrangements for ALL three.

    These dirtbags have the nerve to enter someone's home armed and with very bad intentions? No mercy...NONE!

    God forbid what would have happened if he didn't produce and use the firearm. +1 to Mr. Cooper.

    Good out come. Glad he had protection and that he was not hurt too bad. Shame he didn't finish them all off. We havn't seen anything like it's gonna get now that unemployment is running out for the first wave of people who lost their jobs. It's going to be really escalating.
