I was just about the post the same thing. Here is the recent story from Charlotte, from the area I use to live in.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A homeowner exchanged gunfire with the suspects who had broken into his home early this morning, police say.
The incident happened around 12:15 a.m. Monday on Carriage Drive Circle off of Central Avenue.
Police say five armed suspects kicked in the front door of the home and held the two adults and several children inside at gunpoint. The suspects took items and then started running to their getaway car parked at a nearby apartment complex, police said. The homeowner gave chase.
As they were running, one suspect shot at the homeowner, and he returned fire, police say. The homeowner was not hit, and it’s unknown if any suspects were wounded. The suspects got away in a white Cadillac.
A similar home invasion robbery happened around 11:44 p.m. on Malibu Drive off of The Plaza.
In that case, five suspects kicked in the front door of a home, ransacked the house and then took items, police say. The suspects fled on foot.
One person was inside the home at the time of the robbery, but she was not hurt.
Police say they are exploring the possibility that these crimes are related.
Five armed suspects? my glock 30 only holds 10 rounds? Guess I better start sitting the AK out, huh .40?
This is a crazy string of events and it seems thecriminals are getting more bold and younger. The solution to this problem is good parenting, or at least just keeping your crazy kids in the house after dark. The kid that got killed in that one case was 15, 15 years old and involved in breaking and entering, kidnapping, assault, etc.
