Police say homeowner shot one, others scattered

Dec 19, 2005, 10:08 AM

MEMPHIS - Police in Collierville say a homeowner shot and killed one of several people who broke into his house over the weekend.
Police Lieutenant Greg Flint says homeowner Brian Harper was awakened by his burglar alarm early Saturday and fired at the intruders with a .45-caliber handgun, striking one of them. Flint says the others scattered and Harper doesn't know if the several other shots he fired hit anyone else.

Police say none of the home invaders fired a weapon, but investigators don't know if any of them had one.

Police identified the dead intruder from fingerprints and say he was 28-year-old Lakim Duffy.

His police record shows arrests since 1998 for violations including criminal trespass, especially aggravated robbery and cocaine possession.

Another happy ending

Yet another example where a gun has HELPED someone survive/defend himself+property. Most anti's don't seem to realise people use guns very often for this good purpose. They just seem to think no matter what the application of a gun, it is still evil.

He could have taken them all out if only he had been using a 9mm Glock...

This happened in my town, in a fairly upscale neighborhood. I suspect the perps (or their friends) had done some work in or around his home recently and decided to come back for a closer look.

Last year we had another couple homeowners Darwinize serial burglars who snuck in the wrong window.

[lib]Oh, but it was the homeowners fault. The homeowner should try to understand the prowlers position, because society and the republicans made him poor, without morals, and addicted to a schedule 1 drug. We should love them, and hug them. And guns are bad[/lib]

You only think you are joking. This is in Memphis, after all. NOLA north.

Good thing he didn't rack the shotgun slide, they'd have exploded in the house

more rounds than the Glock .... pull out the AR or an AK might have put em all down before they got out the front door.

That 45 must have sounded like a cannon going off!
Maybe that's why the others didn't stick around.

+ 100 for the good guy! On a side note however, if you were in this situation (homeowner), would you be worried about the dead guy's homies coming back for revenge?

Well sort of but NO!..

First – it’s the Glock fotey and fotey-fie that has the KB problem…but is highly touted as a problem due to people being Glock haters.
Second – Go Green Bay!

Yes, according to ARFCOMers, because the police confiscated his gun and shot his dog.
Actually, the DA will be seeking a felony indictment on the homeowner for not having a mangina!

If you need more than seven, it is probably time to move.

That would be the ultimate schlong deflating irony for all the 1911 guys excited about this story.

Just glad the good guy won. I do hope he gets to keep his gun, but I've heard the chances of
getting your gun back are tough in a situation where someone dies, even if it's justified.

Always wondered about legal bills as well.

Oh how funny, all the folks that turn this into a CALIBER thing, then a brand thing? Geeze

That is a good reason to use a Glock. If I had to shoot someone and the police took my gun for an indefinite period, I would miss a cookie-cutter Glock a lot less than any 1911 I own.
