Gunfire following Mesa home invasion leaves one dead
MESA - An attempted home invasion early Thursday ended with one person dead and a police investigation.
According to the Mesa Police Department two Hispanic males broke in to a home near Baseline Road and Stapley Drive around 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
That doesn't sound good, does it? Never fear, the Second Amendment is here*!
The home owner opened fire on the men and the home invasion ended in the death of one of the suspects and the other seriously injured.
See? Happy ending! The only way it could be better would be if there were two dead goblins...
Here's even more good news about this shooting, from comments to the story:
So the robbers rounded the home owner and the rest of the folks in the house (according to the TV coverage) into a room... that contained a shotgun. LOL! Bad luck, robbers. Good job, homeowner!
Now, I don't know about you, but when I hear about a home invasion where the bad guys herd the residents of the home into one room, I start thinking execution. At the very least, they're getting everyone in one place, which means they're planning something IMHO. Pretty ironic that they chose the room with the gun... ("He chose... poorly").
Dead Goblin Count: 20.
That is all.
*Yes, I know that the Second Amendment affirms our natural right to keep and bear arms against a tyrannical government, not to prevent home invasions. It just scanned better that way...
