    Panhandle burglar dead: His gun was fake, homeowner's gun real

    BRISTOL - Authorities say a burglar with a fake gun was shot and killed by a Panhandle homeowner with a real gun.

    The Liberty County Sheriff's Office reports that 24-year-old Octavious Barnes broke into 82-year-old Bradley Harvil's home and tried to steal about $1,100 in cash Sunday night. Authorities say Barnes was waiving around a toy pistol, colored black with a marker to look real, and assaulted Harvil.

    The homeowner was able to get to his real .357 magnum and shot Barnes in the chest and in the eye. (I bet he didn't see that coming)
    Authorities later concluded that three women had helped Barnes plan the burglary. Deputies have charged 19-year-old Jessica Nicole Long, 22-year-old Heather Marie Ammons and 43-year-old Mandy Allen with felony home invasion and second-degree murder.

    This loser is a candidate for a posthumous Darwin Award.

    Score another point for the good guy though.

    Too bad for the BG that he got what was coming to him. He should have known "Thou shall not steal"

    Glad his DNA has been removed. I hope he didn't have a chance to breed.

    It had a good ending, but not a great ending. A story that was much but could have been so much more.

    Someone should be held accountable for leaving a toy gun and a black marker lying around unsecured where some feeble minded person could get ahold of them and color the toy gun black which enabled him to then be forced to break into someone's house looking for things to sell for food and medicine. I blame Obama. Where's the change, dude? People are tired of waiting! Give the poor people all the tax money so they won't have to turn to crime!
