Teen shot to death while trying to rob man with toy gun, HCSO says

A man is claiming self-defense after he shot and killed one of two teen robbery suspects who approached him with a toy gun overnight in northeast Harris County, the sheriff’s office said.

The deadly shooting happened around 1:40 a.m. at the Forest Creek Apartments on Uvalde near Wallisville Road.

The man told deputies he went to the apartment complex to meet a woman he connected with on a dating website. He alleges that while he was there, two people approached him with what he thought was a real gun.

That’s when the man pulled out his own gun, shooting one of the teens. According to deputies, the second suspect tried to give his friend CPR, but the other teen died.

By: Janice Limon
A man who shot and killed another man at a Spartanburg convenience store earlier this week will not face homicide charges, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday night.

Russell David Berry Sr., 58, of Duncan, was shot Tuesday at the QuikTrip on Reidville Road and died in the operating room about three hours later, Coroner Rusty Clevenger said.

Lt. Kevin Bobo released new information and a description of what was captured on security video that led to the decision by the 7th Circuit Solicitor’s Office.

Bobo said deputies responded to the shooting call about 11 p.m.

He said before deputies arrived, 911 dispatchers advised deputies that witnesses said there was a victim in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Bobo identified the victim as Berry.

By Kinsley Centers
The Houston County Sheriff’s Office providing additional details today in a shooting over the weekend that led to one man’s death.

No charges will be filed in the case, because Sheriff Donald Valenza said 34-year-old Dantrail Mills was trying to break into a Kinsey home when he was shot by the homeowner. On Sunday, Oct. 11 around 2:00 a.m. the Houston County Sheriff’s Office received a call for a possible burglary in progress on Nomad Circle.

Mills was armed and had parked about 90 to 100 feet from the home. When Mills entered the home he was met by a male resident who fired multiple times.

Mills is no stranger to law enforcement. He’s been arrested more than 20 times. He was currently on federal probation.

    Someone once said of American football: As a games, it’s too much. As a fight, it’s not enough. Think for back country my preference would be for less shotgun and more power. Say, a 4-5″ .357. Six rounds, easier ammo to find, can use .38s for small game, and an occasional shot shell for snakes… full house .357s have more power and ammo is lighter than .45 Colt. Love me .44s and .45LCs, but I’m a realist.
