Burglary suspect shot by business owner in Jacksonville Beach

A man who tried to burglarize a Jacksonville Beach business is recovering after being shot by the business owner Monday morning, according to police.

The Jacksonville Beach Police Department says officers were called to 314 14th Ave. N. for a burglary in progress at 2:28 a.m. When officers arrived, they discovered the business owner had shot the suspect who was described as a 30-year-old man about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 210 pounds.

The suspect fled from the scene, police say, and was found by officers about one block west of the business. The suspect was later identified as Daniel Ifeanvi Nwobi, according to police. Police immediately rendered medical attention, and the Nwobi was taken by rescue crews to Memorial Hospital.

A second person has been charged in connection with an attempted robbery in Covington in which police say Tinder was used to lure the victim.

Police have charged Phillip Snyder, 19, of Covington, with robbery, according to a press release today from Covington Lt. Col. Brian Valenti.

Snyder admitted striking the intended victim in the face, Valenti said.

Covington police said Sierra Wayman, 19, of Covington, was in the Kenton County Detention Center on a charge of robbery on Wednesday.

Officers dispatched to Wayman’s home on Bell Court shortly before 9 p.m. Monday found two shooting victims, according to police. One of them was Snyder. The other man is still in the hospital, but charges have not been filed against him at this time, Valenti said.

Police identified the shooter, Peyton Browning of Covington, and contacted him. Browning told police he had just shot two people and agreed to go to police headquarters for an interview, Valenti said Wednesday.

Cool! The Rolex Story is a repeat from the 5 Oct FGS Thread. I remembered it cause it also had the linky to the Colt Walker that day. But that’s OK, I like re-runs. Plus it gave me a chance to practice my site searching skilz. Mason done hooked the doggie up on a shortcut.

J’ville Beach robbery? “…and the Nwobi was taken…” Imma gonna go out on a limb here and saw that this fine upstanding citizen is an African that just happens to be in America. Guess calling him “the Nwobi” is better than the reporter referring to him as “the victim.”

You know, used to be that girls were warned to meet a guy in a public place, or with a friend. Now it seems as if guys need to have someone in an “overwatch” position too. I’ll go out on a limb here, too, and make a guess that this wasn’t just a “date” to go out for Milk Shakes after the Sock Hop. Maybe more of a “Rent-a-Date” situation…by the hour?

Lots of M1s issued to troops in WWII didn’t get turned in upon discharge. Saw ’em here and yon as a lad. Remember quite well our FIRST trip to the rifle range in basic. The Range NCO was a “grizzled” old Master Sergeant, 3 war veteran. He held up the M1 (his personal issued weapon IIRC) and stated flat out, “This is the very best infantry rifle ever made.” He then held up the M14 and said, “This is the newer, improved version.” Setting that down on the table, he picked up the original Mattel M16 and spat out, “This is the piece of sh^t that you will be using in Viet Nam, you better know how to keep it spotlessly clean or it will get your ass killed.”

Hundreds of thousands of Garands were issued to ARVN regular and ruffpuff troops up through 1967 before they were reequipped with M16s starting in 1968. Not sure the fate of these ARVN Garands; I earnestly hope they were returned to U.S. control as they were exchanged for M16s, but that’s probably not what happened, and were still kept in ARVN depot storage when the NVA commies took over in 1975. What a shame these beautiful American works of industrial art and history were lost to the Hanoi Jane-luvvin commie ratbastards….

Old master sergeant was 100% correct. Love the M14, hated the M16. Have found new respect for the new and improved M16/ AR15.

I can see why he goes by the name Daniel. The rest of his name is not local. Perhaps he is new to our customs and traditions as well?
At 5’11” and 210lbs he seems to be well fed, so he likely has been in the U.S. for a while. Maybe he should practice a little courtesy and the clerk would not have decided to give him some free sample (at around 1,000fps)!


Daniel Ifeanyi Nwobi, arrested last year in April for petit theft under a hundred dollars. Although this time he had $1,500.00 worth of stolen stuff (and a gunshot wound) in his vehicle. Cops found him hiding/bleeding under a bunch of old sofa cushions at his crib.
