The shooting occurred at 12:22 a.m. in the 34700 block of Birch Road in Lenwood, near Barstow. The homeowner shot the male intruders, who were also carrying weapons, San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies said. When deputiesarrived at the house, they found 23-year-old Antonio Guerra, of Barstow, dead from at least one gun shot wound to his head, deputies said. The other intruder, Jesse Tafoya, was shot several times and fled, deputies said.

[:D] I like it! Why doesn't Gay Davis take to B&E? I guess he makes more $ raping the whole state at once instead of one individual/family. Betcha $20 that one of the perps families "Can't believe" that fucknuts did it. The homeowner ought to prepare for a civil suit.

They chose to live there and if they are tolerating those kinds of laws and lawsuits, they are knowingly taking the risk. They should move to Texas!

At least the homeowner made his shot count:

Good guys +1 Perps 0 In PRK, it should be +3 actually. I pray that the homeowner is treated justly (i.e. no charges filed against him/her).

Maybe the homeowner will take a preemptive strike and file suit on the perp's family or families first. That is what I would like to see.
The husband woke up and chased 2 assailants in the street, shooting on on the leg. The family sued and they won, cause the assailant was already running away. Unreasonable deadly force was used.

I agree with this one. There was no imminent and deadly harm to the husband or his family running away from the scene. The guy is a DumbAss. But it does come down to the quality of the attorney. Some years ago we had a liquer store owner (here in South Florida) take out an armed robber with a scoped deer rifle from quite a distance and was able to get it declared "defensive".

When I lived in Houston years ago my van was broken into and I asked Houston's finest about shooting someone trying to break in. They told me to shoot them and TO BE SURE TO DO A GOOD JOB OF IT.(as in no survivor)They said to call them and they would take care of the rest....[:D] I love TEXAS...

Here is the poop from the local news rag. I grew in that town, before moving to the big city many years ago. It USED to be a nice place to live. Now its pretty much being taken over the low-income improvished people. The town is located approximately 130 miles east of L.A., Halfway between L.A. and Las Vagas. US Army's Fort Irwin National Training Center, and the USMCs Marine Corp supply station(largest west of the Mississpi) is located just outside of town. ====================================================================== Desert Dispatch Newspaper - Barstow, California [url=http://www.desertdispatch.com/cgi-bin/newspro/viewnews.cgi?newsid1040924757,33920,]Man shoots home intruders, killing one[/url] By SCOTT SHACKFORD/City Editor LENWOOD — A Lenwood resident pulled a gun on two men he said had broken into his home, shooting one to death and injuring the other early Christmas morning, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. According to the report, a 66-year-old homeowner in the 34700 block of Birch Road called 911 at 12:20 a.m. Wednesday and said two men had just broken into his home. He said he had shot at the men, but one of them had fled on foot. When deputies arrived at the home, they found Antonio Guerra, 23, a Barstow resident, dead from a gunshot wound to the head. According to the report, Guerra was wearing dark clothing, gloves and was armed with a handgun. A sheriff’s homicide team was sent to the scene to investigate. According to their report, evidence at the scene indicated that Guerra and an accomplice forced entry into the home in order to commit burglary. The homeowner, fearing for his life, shot at both men with a handgun. Guerra was struck at least once in the head and killed. Guerra’s alleged accomplice, Jesse Tafoya, 24, a Barstow resident, sought medical attention at Barstow Community Hospital about an hour after the burglary, the report said. He was transferred to Loma Linda University Medical Center for surgery. The sheriff’s department is withholding the name of the homeowner for his protection. Anyone with any information about the crime is urged to call the Sheriff’s Barstow Station at 256-4838 or contact Sgt. Bobby Dean of the sheriff’s homicide detail at (909) 387-3589.

Sounds like a good shoot to me. The neighborhood fvcknuts will think twice about screwing with the local retirees after this. Life out in the desert is a little different than LA.

He really should have fired warning shots! It sounds like a hate crime to me because he was racially profiling the young men.

Good shooting! We have one punk who will never commit another crime, and another one who is hopefully injured enough that he will never be able to kick down a door again. [sarcasm] California will now be requiring affirmative action in police arrests. The police must meet their quota of whites arrested before they can arrest more blacks and hispanics. [/sarcasm]
