Shooting that killed man, injured another ruled self defense

CONNELLY SPRINGS — A shooting that left one man dead and another injured has been ruled self defense.

Robert Winston J. Perkins Jr., 45, 6937 Knob Ave., Connelly Springs, was killed in a shooting at the address, according to a previous release from the Burke County Sheriff’s Office.

His brother, Christopher Ronald Perkins, 43, of the same address, was shot and transported to an area trauma center. He has since been released from the hospital, said Sheriff Steve Whisenant in an email.

The men were found after deputies responded to their home for reports of yelling, screaming and gunshots around 12:27 a.m. July 29, according to a previous News Herald article. Robert Perkins was dead at the scene, and Christopher Perkins was transported to a local hospital.

Deputies also discovered that a man involved in the shooting left the scene with a woman, the article said. That man turned himself into Cleveland County sheriff’s deputies. He and the woman with him have been interviewed by Burke County sheriff’s detectives, the release said.

VA: Store owner says clerk who defended himself with gun punished by vengeful prosecutors, alleged perp protected

In late March, three juvenile suspects allegedly broke into immigrant Jowan Zuber’s smoke shop in Arlington, Virginia, as 33-year-old employee Hamzeh Abushariah was asleep in the back.

Awakened by the noise, Abushariah reached for his pistol, stepped out onto the sales floor and discharged his weapon, striking one of the suspects. He then fled to the back of the store, quickly dialed 911 and then returned to the front to fire more shots and scare the criminals away.

After the break-in occurred, the police arrested Abushariah, a move so brazenly shocking that Fox News host Tucker Carlson wound up inviting Zuber onto his show in early April to get the word out about what was happening.

Five months later, Zuber again appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight“, and the news was even grimmer than before.
According to Zuber, not only has Abushariah since been placed on house arrest, but the alleged “ring leader” of the burglary has been cleared of all charges — and despite there reportedly being video evidence showing the break-in.

Suspect shot in home invasion dies; police seeking accomplice

Tulsa police are searching for a man with a gunshot wound after a homeowner reportedly shot two men who broke into his home early Friday morning.

Officers responded to the home in the 800 block of North New Haven Avenue about 1:40 a.m. Friday and found the homeowner bleeding from the head after being pistol whipped.

Another man — believed to be one of two who entered the home while the homeowner, his wife and child were sleeping — was found on the floor in a bedroom with a gunshot wound to the head.

The homeowner said his dog’s barking alerted them to the intruders’ presence. Despite being pistol whipped, the homeowner reportedly managed to take the gun and told investigators he shot both intruders.

Three, if not home then occupied dwellings invaded, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. With the exception of the work place, there are secondary issues there, all were high risk and low gain. Proving once again your average criminal is about as sharp as a bag of hammers. Give Fido a big rawhide treat for his good work, much better than the VA prosecutors.

    You know, I was having a pretty good day FIRST thing this morning. The ol’ King of Battle had been re-throned, a nice shot of the lovely Mini 14 and a DRT and a WRT start to the FGS. Then that Virginia story had to rear its ugly head. FFS, daHell is wrong with these people? You got video evidence of dirtbaggery and you gonna prosecute a person defending life and property? GMAFB!!!

    The follow up story of another DRT and a pistol whipped by his own weapon dip sh^t took some of the edge off, but damned if I don’t think I need a cold beer. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Arlington, VA?

    No surprise there. That part of NoVA is pretty much hopeless.

    Mini-14… apparently (according to the A-Team show) most inaccurate rifle in history. Many thousands of rounds fired and never hit anyone.
