    Louisiana: Home invasion: Suspect caught, dead youth ID’d

    This little thug learned his permanent 'lesson' at a young age.

    Louisiana: Home invasion: Suspect caught, dead youth ID’d

    Shreveport, Louisiana

    From the Shreveport Times of March 3, 2010
    Home invasion: Suspect caught, dead youth ID’d
    Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a home invasion and the coroner has identiifed the 15-year-old who was killed while invading the home.

    At about 10 p.m. today, Shreveport police arrested Jeremy Rachal, 18, of the 6200 block of South Crest Drive in Shreveport, on a charge of home invasion, according to Sgt. Bill Goodin, police spokesman.

    Dr. Todd Thoma identified the 15-year-old as Gregory N. Graham.

    Graham apparently participated in the home invasion at Billy Mayweather’s house in the 6000 block of Fox Chase Trail.
    When the 62-year-old’s son, Brandon Mayweather, 31, came by the house shortly after 11 p.m. to check on him, Graham opened fire on Brandon Mayweather, according to police.

    But Brandon Mayweather was also armed and returned fire, shooting the 15-year-old twice in the torso and once in an arm. Graham was pronounced dead at LSU Hospital in Shreveport.

    Police say Brandon Mayweather, who was accompanied by his mother, was checking up on his father when he stumbled in upon the home invasion. Neither he or his mother live with Billy Mayweather.

    By the time they’d arrived, Billy Mayweather had already been awoken by two males as they were restraining his hands and feet with duct tape.
    Goodin called this method of restraining the home owner an anomaly — other than a home invasion in Benton during which three intruders used the same variety of extra-strength tape to immobilize the 68-year-old homeowner while they robbed her of her safe just after midnight Feb. 24.
    Two guns suspected to be those used in the shoot-out between Brandon Mayweather and Graham were seized.

    Anyone who has information should call Shreveport police Detective Lowell Bowen at (318) 673-7016 or Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373.

    Two BG's. Both "caught." One is dead, while the other is responsible for the death and currently being trussed up to pay for that death.

    The only trick will be to make the "payment" stick. May the politicians and bureaucrats charged with keeping him off the streets do exactly that, instead of engaging in the typical turnstile two-step. Should they fail to do so, may the first armed citizen this BG comes in contact with do it, when he attempts to take from him all that he has.

    IIRC Shreveport is the City where the Police Chief and Law Enforcement do everything to disuade CC in their City Limits.
    I read a story recently where the Police stopped and siezed a mans handgun simply because he was drivig through the City with Pro Gun Bumpers stickers on his automobile. No other probable cause if I have my facts correct.

    Mr. Mayweather may find himself thrown under the bus by the Shreveport Police for saving his and his fathers life with deadly force.

    Curt58, that would be terrible. Assuming that's how the majority of the locals feel, it's better to just vote with your feet.

    This is why I have no bumper stickers or window decals on my truck.

    Good news for the Good Guys..
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Sorry, you don't have your facts correct. He was stopped for failure to signal in a part of Shreveport that is notorious for drunk driving on the weekends. It was a pre-text stop to make sure he was sober, which I don't really agree with, but the bumper stickers had nothing to do with it. The officer that stopped him was even an NRA member. Law Enforcement is also largely pro gun here and I have never had any problems on the very rare occasions when I've had to interact with a LEO while carrying concealed.

    Seriously, the entire situation has been blown out of proportion because of two things: 1) a citizen that got butt hurt about being deprived of his sidearm for the length of a traffic stop, and 2) an idiotic mayor that doesn't know when to shut up. We'll hopefully be getting Cedric Glover out of office later this year, but I don't have high hopes on that one.

    Very good shooting by the son.
