The Washington Times reports that an Alexandria, VA Sheriff’s deputy came home after his shift to find at least one burglar in his home in Prince George’s County, MD. After a confrontation, the deputy drilled the criminal in his home. The criminal then ran outside and expired;
The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office did not identify the deputy but said he has been placed on administrative leave pending completion of investigations into the shooting.
County police have not released the identity of the man killed but said they are investigating whether one or more additional suspects may have been on the scene.
Police did not know Wednesday whether the man who was killed was armed but said the deputy shot the man with a gun that was not his service weapon.
Said burglar should have done a better job of casing the joint. But, then with Maryland’s restrictive gun control measures, the odds that the homeowner was unarmed were in his favor. Well, right up to the point where the deputy pointed a gun at him, anyway.
At least that’s one burglar the deputy won’t have to confront on his beat.
