Virginia man protects his 2-year-old son, shoots and kills intruders in his home

Via Cousin John

A Virginia man was home with his 2-year-old son with three intruders forced their way into his home. He shot and killed two of them and the third intruder managed to escape. 

Here’s video of the local news report:

from NBC 12:
Prince Edward sheriff’s deputies are investigating a deadly home invasion that happened early Sunday morning in Prospect. Two of the three suspects are dead, shot by the homeowner in self defense, according to investigators on scene. Meanwhile, the search continues for the third suspect.
This situation began unfolding at about 4:30 a.m. in the 5000 block of Prince Edward Highway, or Route 460. Investigators told NBC12’s Kelly Avellino three unknown men forced their way in the front door of the home, where a man was alone with a 2-year-old child.
According to a press release issued by Sheriff Wesley W. Reed, that man called 911 to report a home invasion and said the suspects were armed. Reed also said gunfire was exchanged between the suspects and the caller.
Authorities said two suspects were pronounced dead at the scene, while the third managed to escape on foot.
We’re told the homeowner and the child were not harmed. 


  1. Two out of three ain't bad. Heh. I won't be around here much for a while. I have joined the "Boots on the Ground" (more like wheels on the ground for me) team of the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. We will be hard at work to save the big magazines and the little gun owners from the evil Colorado Democrats. Endeavor to Persevere. My mother would say, as she often did, "It is never too late to begin a good thing." I sure hope not.

      Good deal and keep us informed. Do they have a website?

    2. They have a Facebook page which I can't read because I was thrown off Facebook. Here's the link.


    3. Thanks and I remember something about that, but why did you get kicked off?

  2. Funny how a description of the missing suspect is not given...

    Probably one of the 'usual suspects'.....Brown hair, brown eyes...yeah.

    1. Well, they could have had blonde hair and blue eyes.......:)
