From Newton County, Georgia;

Authorities are on the hunt for a dangerous armed robber who ambushed a homeowner in his driveway.

It all happened in a quiet neighborhood in Newton County.

But homeowner Carlos Wicker had a surprise as well.

Wicker was armed, was a former police officer, and says he was more than prepared to take on the suspect.

For 16 years Wicker served as a police officer, so he thinks this would-be robber with a gun messed with the wrong homeowner.

So on Tuesday, when a robber ambushed him in his driveway at the Riverwalk Farms community off Dearing Road in Newton County just after midnight, he wasn’t worried.

He says his years of officer training as a former DeKalb County police officer and district attorney investigator, working to take criminals off the street, took over.

“I pulled my gun, I shot at him and he took off running,” Wicker said.

Newton County deputies told FOX 5 they’re on the hunt for the robbers.

From Yakima, Washington;

Two people who forced themselves into a home early Sunday are dead of stab wounds and three people in the home were also stabbed, Yakima police reported.

Police responded to a home invasion robbery in the 1900 block of South 64th Avenue at about 3:50 a.m., according to a news release.

Two suspects forced their way inside, authorities said. Once inside, a fight ensued between the family members and the two suspects.

Three family members were stabbed, as were both suspects. The family members were all transported to an area hospital for treatment, the release noted. Both suspects died at the scene.

From Detroit, Michigan;

The home invasion and shooting took place about 2:15 a.m. on the 13000 block of Tacoma, which is south of East State Fair and west of Schoenherr.

Police say the victim was sitting in his living room when the suspect, a 51-year-old man, barged into the home and fired shots, one of which struck the victim in his face.

The victim was able to grab a piece of wood and hit the suspect in his head with it.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he’s listed in temporary serious condition.

The suspect ran out of the house, apparently dropping the gun in the process. Police recovered the weapon at the scene. A short time later, police caught up to the suspect at an area hospital and arrested him.

    See! Even when gunz are outlawed, people will still find other ways to threaten others AND DEFEND themselves.

  2. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    Hmmm……the story (here) doesn’t mention it, but it would be interesting to find out the name, ethnicity, and skin melanin content of the perp.
    Just for scientific curiosity.

    When did one GA robber become more than one GA robbers.

    “I pulled my gun, I shot at him and he took off running,” Wicker said.

    That’s it? After the over the top bio on the retired LEO that was a pillar of the community and blah, blah, la blah. What a guy.

    That enterprising fellow in Detroit might take the time to attach a 10-inch cast iron skillet to the piece of wood he keeps on hand.
    Colliding a cast iron cooking utensil with an invading pile of human flesh can be a very effective way to repel boarders.
