‘It’s very shocking:’ Police investigating after homeowner shoots carjacking suspect in Herlong area

By Annette Gutierrez
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Police are investigating a homeowner who shot a man accused of trying to carjack him in the Herlong area of Jacksonville.

Neighbors say it’s usually a quiet area, but for about five hours police were there investigating after they say a guy ditched a stolen car and then tried to steal another one from a man who later shot him.

“It’s very shocking,” neighbor K.P. Lancaster said.

“It’s been a day and I’m sorry that it happened, and I’m sorry it happened it here,” neighbor Sheryl Anglin said.

JSO said around noon, A K9 officer tried conducting a traffic stop of a stolen car out of Suwanee County, on Spring Lake Drive.

Police said the suspect then took off after kicking a woman out of the car.

That’s when JSO said the suspect held the homeowner at gunpoint while trying to carjack his car from inside his garage.

Anglin described what had happened to her neighbor saying, “The guy told him he had guns on him and he told him, ‘Give me your keys or I’ll kill you.’ And he said, ‘Oh sure, but I have to step in the house to get it.’ So when he did that, he grabbed his gun instead.

Police say the suspect – a 30-year-old man – then ran across a pasture in that area where neighbors chased him down.

“I just heard gunshots and people going every which way, pretty much searching him out trying to keep this neighborhood safe.” Lancaster said.

The homeowner retrieved his firearm and gave Cosby repeated commands to leave. He told Cosby he would fire his weapon, according to police. Cosby then allegedly broke the kitchen window and began to climb through when the homeowner shot him once in the arm.

Police said Cosby dropped his revolver near the kitchen sink and ran away.

Not reading a lot about bullpup rifles recently, makes one ask, “where are they now?”

A few new ones have come out since then. Ed tends to run strings lately by type of gun, so I expect to see more this week. Expensive, tend to have lousy trigger pulls, and lots of people don’t like that blast so near their face… all reasons why not.. But efficient, compact for the barrel length, are all good things.

Play stoopid games, win stoopid prizes.
Makes me wonder what intoxicating substances the Nashville perp was on?
Plenty of warnings from the homeowner, yet Mr Cosby insisted, persisted, and continued to try to break into the home.
Personally, my only regret on this story is that Mr Homeowner didn’t use a large enough caliber to make Mr Cosby a DRT, instead of just a WRT. Ahhh, well, can’t have everything you want in life.

“…didn’t use a large enough caliber…” Tox, are you saying that Mr. Homeowner should be adhering to The Gospel according to HMS JMB (HBHN)? The Gun Bunny…grins.

Two (2) more cases that coulda gone toward the SPoTW Thread. Good examples of citizens fighting back and even gooder when the whole neighborhood fights back.

I’d rather be a traitor and a scoundrel than a subject.

If the theme for this week’s gun pr0n is to be bullpups, it may help me make up my mind which one to get. “…uses the long stroke…” Just the way she likes it.

“…didn’t use a large enough caliber…” I’m sayin you should reference again the FGS WotD from yers’day, Mister Mossberg’s 88. Don’t get me wrong, 45 is great, 12 is bestest.

I’d rather be a traitor and a scoundrel than a subject.

I’d rather be ashes and dust than live on my knees.

You have a sparkling day there, Reb. I gotta play builder for my missus…

Mossy Maverick means never having to say “Sorry I missed you.”

Have not done any courting (other than lusting out loud over OAM) or had any thoughts of getting a missus of late, but if I did…it would go something like this…

Some neighborhoods have a watch.

Other neighborhoods have a catch.
