    4 Arrested in Home Invasion On Westside Drive
    Homeowner, 68, Fires Shot At Intruder
    posted July 10, 2009

    Chattanooga Police have arrested four suspects after a home invasion at the residence of a 68-year-old man on Thursday.

    The incident happened at 12:39 a.m. at 2906 Westside Dr.

    Police said the man told police he had just gone to bed when he heard noises outside. He said he got up
    and looked out the front window. He saw a maroon/red SUV at the end of his driveway.

    He said two black males, identified as Darrius Simmons, 20, and Gabriel Williams, 24, got out of the SUV and started towards his house. He said a black female, identified as Cornitna Benn, 22, stayed at the truck.


    The man called 911 and started watching the suspects from his bedroom. He then heard them inside his residence and saw the light come on.

    Police said the man armed himself with a single-shot rifle and, when he opened the door, he was confronted by a black male wearing all red (Simmons).

    He said when the man came at him, he fired a single shot at the suspect causing him to flee.

    Police officers who were responding to the victim's 911 call saw a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Justin Sexton, 20, just houses away and stopped the vehicle. Simmons jumped from the vehicle and ran before being caught by police.

    Simmons was injured when he fell down a steep hill covered with kudzu during the chase. He was transported to Parkridge Hospital.

    Gabriel Demon Williams, 27, was charged with criminal conspiracy, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.

    Ms. Benn, 22, was charged with
    criminal conspiracy, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.

    Sexton was charged with facilitation of a felony.

    Simmons was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, aggravated robbery, resisting a stop and frisk and felonious possession of a firearm.

    Police said Williams was released from jail two days ago on robbery charges.

    Williams was released two days prior on robbery charges, wow, I guess he really learned his lesson the first time.
    The only solution for a guy like that is a 6ft deep hole, before he puts an innocent person in one.

    Single shot rifle--not good, but better than nothing.

    Completely missing the BG--really not good--don't "fire one over the bow" when you'vre only got one.

    Scaring the BG's before they could finish their plans--Priceless.

    Kudzu (クズ or 葛, Kuzu?), Pueraria lobata (syn. P. montana, P. thunbergiana), sometimes called foot-a-night vine, mile-a-minute vine, or the "vine that ate the South", is one of about 20 species in the genus Pueraria in the pea family Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae. It is native to southern Japan and southeast China in eastern Asia. The name comes from the Japanese word for this plant, kuzu. The other species of Pueraria occur in southeast Asia, further south.

    I'm sure any southerner would be more than willing to send you a cutting to plant in your back yard.
