From Lake City, South Carolina;

Two people were shot during a home invasion Monday afternoon on East Myrtle Beach Highway, just outside of Lake City, according to the Florence County Sheriff’s Office.

The two wounded are suspects in the home invasion, according to Major Michael Nunn, with the sheriff’s office.

Five suspects have been identified in total and three are in custody. The two remaining suspects are being treated at an area hospital for gunshot wounds sustained during the incident, he said.

I think I wrote about this one from Shreveport, Louisiana yesterday, but I want to play name scrabble;

Arrested were Tarodganey Sumner, 26, of the 600 block of Bringhurst Drive, and Calvin Horton, 27, of the 500 block of West 76th Street, on burglary and firearms charges.

The Shreveport Police Department gave this account:

Just after 11:45 a.m. Monday, in the Southern Hills neighborhood of south Shreveport, a concerned neighbor witnessed two men forcibly entering a house in the 3000 block of Burson Drive.

Patrol officers and liaison officers were nearby and arrived quickly. One man fled from the residence on foot. A neighbor and his father were in the backyard of another residence when they encountered the man, whom police identified as Sumner, 26.

The man allegedly aimed a .22-caliber pistol with a silencer at them, prompting the citizen to fire a shot to defend his life and the life of his father. The shot missed the man but caused him to drop his weapon and surrender.

The neighbor and his father yelled out to officers, who found them and arrested Sumner.

Horton was found in another neighbor’s yard and arrested.

Criminals in Chicago, Illinois should be aware – more black women there are getting concealed carry permits, according to the Tribune;

About 800 black women got a license in 2014, according to Illinois State Police. So far in 2017, nearly 1,400 black women have received a concealed carry permit — already more than all of 2016. In all, more than 4,000 black women have received a concealed carry license in Cook County.

    Jonn:

    Tarodganey Sumner = 23

    Calvin Horton = 20

    No WRTs/WOTs or DRTs/DOTs, so just the basic scores.

    Thank You for playing today’s round of TAH Name Scrabble (Home Version)

      Just for shits and giggles, I would have loved to know the names of the 6 Taliban that got smoked when that British sniper shot the guy with the suicide vest and detonated it, killing the other 5 back in 2014.

      I don’t think it would be worth the effort to total the score…..just, “Game over man, game over”.

      Tarodganey

      — sigh —

      That’s one of the best ones yet.

    Chicago has concealed carry for some but not all.

  3. Rock says:

    Oh shit Jonn, you were right, I officially feel like a shithead for my inane statement about the gentleman from Shreveport who missed. If he was defending his family, nerves can definitely get in the way.

    So, I apologize for making such a shitty statement about him without knowing all of the facts. You were right, it’s a feel good story. Just slap me next time.

    Not only did the guy in Shreveport have a suppressed .22, the cops found a suppressed 9mm in his car. Two suppressors in one felony?

    That Louisiana story makes MUCH more sense today than yesterday’s mumble jumble.
