Police: West Palm Beach couple shoots, kills home intruder

Sonja Isger, Palm Beach Post
WEST PALM BEACH — A man who broke into a home, startling a couple from their sleep early Saturday, was shot by one of the residents and died later at the hospital, city police said.

West Palm Beach police went to a house in the 500 block of Avon Road in response to a 911 call about a shooting at 4:16 a.m. Saturday. Officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound inside, police said Saturday night.

Police believe the man, possibly in his late 30s to early 40s, broke into the home through a window and turned on the bedroom light, waking the pair, a 44-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman. Their names were withheld by police because of the Marsy’s Law privacy restriction.

Anna Spoerre
An investigation is underway after police shot and injured an armed man early Sunday morning in Leavenworth, according to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

The shooting occurred as police were looking for a suspect in a stabbing investigation in Lansing, Chief Patrick Kitchens said in a news release.

Officers found the suspect, who they said was armed with a handgun, in the middle of the intersection of North 5th and Seneca streets at about 5 a.m. A brief standoff followed, Kitchens said.

Officers from other departments arrived and tried to negotiate with the man, later identified by the KBI as Donald Barden Jr., 31, of Leavenworth. Officers tried to get him to drop his weapon, but he ignored their commands, the KBI said.

Texas man charged in fatal shooting of driver who turned around in his driveway

By MaryAnn Martinez
A Texas man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a driver who authorities believe was using his driveway to turn his car around.

Terry Turner, 65, was indicted on a first-degree murder charge Wednesday in the death of Adil Dghoughi, 31, outside his home in Martindale, about 50 miles from Austin, Caldwell County District Attorney Fred Weber said.

“It is our belief that [Dghoughi] was trying to get to his girlfriend’s residence, and he went to the wrong house,” Weber said.

Turner told authorities he woke up on Oct. 11 and saw a strange car parked in the driveway of his house, according to court documents.

Turner claimed that he grabbed his gun and chased the car as it was backing out of the driveway. But when the driver pulled a gun on him, he fired a single shot into the car.

Prosecutors, however, said a gun was not found in Dghoughi’s car.

A solid twofer to start the work week and maybe, just maybe, the WRT will catch a nice, painful, deadly infection while in the hospital. Sweet!

Timely precautionary tale Ol’ Poe. Mr. Turner better hope that someone finds either a weapon, or something that appears to be a weapon. Kudos to Mr. Turner’s marksmanship (one round, one kill), but not too bright to fire at someone that is retreating. But then again, we weren’t there and we don’t know “the rest of the story”.

Reviewer was factual in his review of the RIA M200. It is what it is…a $200 revolver (albeit that was in 2017). Doubt if you could find one at that price today. An inexpensive weapon is better than NO weapon.


Gunbroker shows many relatively close, under $250. Not bad for 5 years later.
From the story presented, Mr. Turner will be a lot older before he gets out.

When I read the review of the RIA M200, I thought he was talking about an early Taurus gun.
The review was written in April 2017, almost 5 years ago. Has RIA improved their QC since then? Be interesting to read a more up-to-date review on the same pistol, maybe a comparison of the same pistol, then-and-now.

I have a RIA 1911. A friend raved about his. I was disappointed with the accuracy of mine, especially when compared with my Kimber. But the latter was double the price. You get what you pay for. For an inexpensive gun made in the PI, they get the job done. Just don’t expect to win any target matches.

Turner should have said “turner” around so I don’t have to shoot you, as one good turn er deserves another.
