IN: More on Indianapolis Shooting, 1 of 3 Home Invaders Killed

On Thursday prosecutors believe Ricky Cartmel pried open the front door just after sunset and was was shot and killed by a homeowner’s son.

“It’s important to see how much the homeowner did before he shot. He had a friend call 911. He yelled out warnings. He told them to go away and only all that, he resorted to lethal force. It’s exactly how stand your ground should work,” said attorney John Tompkins.

Attorney Tompkins isn’t connected to the case, but agrees with the decision not to charge the homeowner’s son with a crime.

But two suspects who survived the shooting Thursday — identified by police as brothers Benjamin Gardner, 47, and Kevin Lemaster, 40 — are now facing two counts of burglary and one count of felony murder.
