ST. JOHNSBURY — Vermont State Police said an apparent robbery over illegal drugs turned deadly Monday night when a man wearing a mask tried to break into a St. Johnsbury apartment and was shot and killed by a person inside the residence who then fled the scene.

Capt. Jeremy Hill of the state police said during a Tuesday afternoon press briefing that he was still awaiting autopsy results from the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington before releasing the name of the man who was killed.

Hill said he expected that autopsy to take place Wednesday morning.

He also said the search of the shooter remains ongoing.

“We don’t know the exact circumstances but it does appear to be drug related,” Hill said of the shooting.

Charges issued against intruder who was shot by homeowner in north St. Louis County

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — A man was shot and later charged after breaking into a home in Castle Point in north St. Louis County, according to police.

Andre Farrar III, 27, was charged by the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office with first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted burglary and resisting arrest with a felony. He was being held on a $200,00 cash-only bond.

According to the St. Louis County Police Department, officers were called shortly before 4 a.m. to the 2200 block of Empress Drive for a burglary.

Farrar had unlawfully entered the home and attempted to steal property by throwing it out the window, but was shot by the homeowner, a probable cause statement said. A man and woman who live in the home were inside at the time, Lt. Craig Higginbotham with the St. Louis County Police Department said.

Local attorney Anders Walker told 5 On Your Side that the homeowner was likely well within their rights to open fire.

“In your home, all you need is a reasonable fear that you might get hurt,” Walker said. It “doesn’t have to be serious. You can shoot.”

The suspect then ran from the home past responding officers who were ordering him to stop and stating that he was being placed under arrest, police said. A police K-9 was used to search the area.

I got a feel-good story…

Just bought a Kimber Custom LW 1911 in God’s caliber, .45 ACP, as revealed to his Apostle, John Moses Browning, Howitzer Be His Name.

Got the pistol, 3 magazines, holster, mag holster, and range bag for $799 at Range USA. Picked up a box of self defense ammo and a 200 round brick of range ammo. Funny thing is, the guy who rang me out had been a Cadet in my previous unit when I was Company Commander. He’s currently a 1LT in a Cav unit and it was wild seeing him again. 🤣
