    Intruders killed in Hickory home invasion

    Two men were killed in Hickory late Wednesday during a botched home invasion, authorities said.

    Shortly after 11 p.m., the men, who were dressed in black and were wearing masks, forced their way into a home on 33rd Avenue in Northeast Hickory and were shot and killed by the house's owner, said Maj. Coy Reid at the Catawba County Sheriff's Office.

    Reid would not name the owner and said that authorities Thursday morning were still trying to identify the men, who appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s.

    The owner has not been charged in the killings, Reid said, and the case has been given to the District Attorney's Office.

    Authorities have identified two men killed last week during a botched home invasion in Hickory.

    Thomas Devon England, 23, of Hickory and 19-year-old William Justin Terrell Parsons of Taylorsville were shot to death March 19 after they forced their way into a home on 33rd Avenue in Northeast Hickory around 11 p.m., according to the Catawba County Sheriff's Office.

    England and Parsons, who were found dressed in black, wearing face masks and with handguns, were killed by the house's owner, authorities said.

    A warrant was taken out Thursday to search the home.

    The District Attorney's Office is reviewing the case but hasn't decided whether to charge the home's owner.

    I'm a little disgusted and appalled that a week later the DA still "hasn't decided" whether or not to charge the homeowner.

    Letting the hype go away and people to cool off I guess.

    This is a no brainer.... They we not cops so... there were there with absolute evil intent and bringing guns was not for self defence but a tool to gain compliance, intimidate, or even kill the occupants.

    I wonder why.

    I just wonder if the owner was already a suspected drug dealer. Maybe the motive of the home invasion was large amounts of cash. Kind of an ideal target in one sense. Who is he going to complain to?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
