    Good: Robbery, standoff end with 2 men dead in Fairborn

    Robbery, standoff end with 2 men dead in Fairborn

    The Huffman Ave they speak of is in Dayton, about 3 blocks from here. It's about a 10-15 block street, but I'm not sure how close it was to me. The standoff happened in Fairborn.

    FAIRBORN — A stolen $500 piece of silver and two dead suspects are what’s left of a bizarre home invasion that led to a four-hour police standoff.

    Bradley Fugate said he had just opened the front and back doors to let some cool air into his Huffman Avenue home Monday, Aug. 31, when two men came in the back door and put guns to his head.

    Less than 24 hours later, both of those men were dead, one at Fugate’s home Monday and the other after a Fairborn standoff Tuesday.

    “I didn’t know who they were, and they kept asking 'Where’s the money?’ ” Fugate said. “My brother, we kept trying to talk in circles to keep them calm. The black guy, he kept laughing.”

    That man, Danny L. Brown, 30, pushed Fugate’s niece down onto a bed while rummaging through a safe in the bedroom, Fugate said.

    “That was enough for me and it allowed me to get my gun from where I keep it in the bed and I raised up and fired,” Fugate said. “We got into the kitchen and he turned around and raised his gun up at me. That’s when I shot him in the head. It was a fatal shot.”

    Fugate said he fired two shots at the other robber, Shawn Jones, 40, who was able to get away in a cream-yellow Cadillac with a one-pound silver bar and some prescription medication.

    “They got into my safe and got the silver,” Fugate said. “It was just one of the safes with a key — a K-Mart special. You use it to store important documents in case of a fire.”

    Brown was found inside Fugate’s home on Huffman Avenue and pronounced dead at Miami Valley Hospital.

    Hours later three women tried to pawn the silver bar, Dayton Lt. Patrick Welsh said. Detectives used the silver bar to track down Jones in Fairborn, Welsh said.

    Jones at first slammed the door and held his grandmother, Edna Vickery, captive, yanking her back into the house twice when she tried to leave, Fairborn police Capt. Doc Plemmons said.

    About 15 minutes later, police were able to pull the woman out of her home when she came to the door a third time. Police said she was not injured but had her grandson’s blood on her clothes.

    Fairborn Chief Terry Barlow said police were never able to talk to Jones after that initial contact at the door. Negotiators urged him to come out, waited, then fired tear gas into the house, all with no response. Officers then kicked in the door and found the man dead in the living room, his wrists cut .

    Welsh said police are still looking for a possible third suspect in Monday’s home invasion — a person who drove the Cadillac from the scene.

    Bradley Fugate is not facing any criminal charges at this time, police said.

    An Ohio law passed last year allows people to defend their homes from invaders by any means necessary, including lethal force.

    “I ain’t no hero, and I’m broken up about it,” Fugate said. “I did what I had to do.”

    Another death due to "acute failure of the victim selection process."

    And we should all thank Shawn Jones for ultimately doing the right thing. In today's economy, saving the state the cost of a trial, a public defender and incarceration costs was a wonderfully selfless act on his part.

    Now what about the three women who tried to pawn the silver bar? I think they need a little jail time to remind them it's not nice to deal in stolen property.

    Turns out this house is 4 blocks from me and the house where the guy committed suicide is at the end of a co-worker's street.

    Dayton actually has an interesting system with pawn shops. They are all tied in to an electronic application. When they buy something, they list the item, description, serial # and the License # of the person doing the selling. If an item is stolen from a home and sold at a pawn shop, detectives can get on the application and do searches for serial # or description, find out which pawn shop bought it, pull tapes and track down the license #. They now have the seller and evidence it was sold by them.

    Sounds like a pretty violent turn of events, glad the homeowner was able to defend and dispatch one of the BG's.

    BTW ... several states/cities have enacted pawn laws so as somebody pawn's something, LE agencies will be alerted to the action within about 20 mins afterwards. All of the "pawnee's" personal information is available almost immediately after the pawn. Whether its a valid pawn or not, the cops pretty much know right away.

    FWIW it's somewhat difficult to bleed out from the wrists.
