Followup AK: Two Men Face Charges in Home Invasion
The husband said he was asleep at the time of the initial break-in while his wife was elsewhere in the house. Troopers stated the man told them he heard his wife scream, jumped out of bed, and once he realized what was happening, grabbed a handgun off the headboard. The victim said as he turned back, he was shot by one of the robbers who ran into another room, but returned fire. The culprit then jumped through a window.
The wife reported she had heard something earlier while working in an outdoor workshop. She told police she came into the house around 12:15 a.m. and was on the couch when she spotted a dark-skinned, slender male standing in front of her pointing a black semi-automatic pistol in her face. According to court records, the victim grabbed the gun with both hands wrestling it away from her face while screaming.
