LYNWOOD, Calif. (KABC) — An off-duty security guard shot three other men, one fatally, after they allegedly tried to rob him Friday morning in a Lynwood parking lot, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesperson said.

The victim told investigators that he was sleeping in his truck outside an AutoZone in the 10900 block of Long Beach Boulevard about 4:45 a.m. when he was awakened by the suspects breaking into the vehicle.

The security guard was not an employee of AutoZone or any other nearby businesses, according to officials. He left the scene and notified authorities of what had happened.

“The first suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other two suspects were transported to a local hospital,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. The conditions of the wounded men were unknown.

Soto slaying ruled justifiable homicide

James Halpin
WILKES-BARRE — A man who was fatally injured during a fight this spring was mortally injured by another person acting in self-defense in a case of justifiable homicide, the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

Jeremy Soto, 25, of Wilkes-Barre, died after being hit in the head during a fight in the 500 block of N. Main St.

“A review of the investigation revealed that Soto was the aggressor in the incident and the strikes he suffered were in response to his aggressive behavior and unexpectedly resulted in his death,” District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said in a statement. “The evidence and facts indicate that the actions in response to the aggressive behavior constitute self-defense and consequently charges will not be filed.”

Today’s score, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, is a respectable two down and out, three inconvenienced, and one in the wind. Not bad at all.

Why do these people that find strangers in their homes do anything but shoot to kill? WTF is with these warning shots and other bullshit? If any stranger shows up in my house uninvited, the only thing they will get is a nice tight group center mass! More range time people and don’t forget the most important part! Shoot To Kill!!

For the same reason that nice young deputy in Dallas is being tried for homicide! She was mistaken and entered his house! Sometimes drunk or tired (or mentally impaired) people do stupid things, if you ask them nicely they will leave, and you don’t have to shoot them.
If you do shoot them, I hope you have good insurance! Regardless if you were right, you will be on trial, defending yourself and it will not be cheap! Read some of the stories about what happens after a shooting. You will be happy to spend a little for insurance, to cover you regardless of being right or wrong. Some are good, and some are better.

Full house hand FIRST thing this morning. 2 pr, 3 of a kind, and a discard. We’ll take it. If there is prison overcrowding, the sample of an empty, unused facility looks like it is good enough lodgings for the trash that is preying on society.

We have many destroyers of the liberties spread throughout our gubmint. We’ve made it way yonder too easy for them spread out bounties, donations, and benefits using our monies.

In his best Bob Seger voice, “…Night hawks…umhum…working on some Night hawks…yeah yeah…” Covet, covet, covet!


Everyone should have carry insurance.
The cost is about a dollar a day and it will provide the tens of thousands for a lawyer for the stand your ground hearing, to the hundreds of thousands needed if it goes to trial.
A $300,000 defense is way better than a $30,000 defense.
The District Attorney has complete freedom to charge you even if it was a good shoot.
