It’s a variation on the “fool me once” adage: “Shoot me once, shame on you. Shoot me twice, shame on me.”
An unidentified Tulsa resident who is paralyzed from the waist down following a 2009 home invasion in which he was shot seven times by an intruder was confronted by a similar set of circumstances early Thursday. This time, the outcome was differemt. CBS affiliate KJRH reports:
Around 12:30 a.m. officers responded to a shooting call at Suzanne Apartments near 11th and Highway 169. Upon arrival they found Kejuan Shields and Demario Harris dead inside an apartment. Police say the resident was the shooter.
Homicide detective Sgt. Dave Walker says Shields, Harris and a third suspect were involved in a disagreement outside the resident’s apartment. When the resident and a friend retreated into the apartment, Shields, Harris and the third suspect broke through the door and began assaulting the resident’s friend.
The resident told police one of the suspects had a handgun.
The suspect who bolted is described as a black male, about 5 feet 7, weighing 150 pounds, and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt.
The resident is described as 26 years old. His mother, Anita Penn, consented to an interview with KJRH reporter Will DuPree:
The report is just the latest in a growing trend typified by armed homeowners who are mad as hell and refusing to take it any more.
