Breitbart reports: A homeowner wrestled a gun away from two home invasion suspects then opened fire with it, killing one suspect and causing the second to flee.
According to NBC 4, authorities with the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Department say “21-year-old Delonte Jones, of Prince George’s County, and 18-year-old Amber Eley, of Orange, Virginia, knocked on the door of a home in the 1400 block of Woodland Church Road.” When the homeowner answered the door, Jones and Eley feigned car trouble and asked for help. The homeowner sensed something was not right and refused. Jones and Eley then forced their way into the home and struck the homeowner with a gun.
A struggle ensued where the homeowner allegedly took a gun away from Jones and shot the suspect with it, hitting him in the stomach and killing him. Law enforcement officers who arrived on scene were not able to locate any other suspects. Jones was taken to a hospital, where he died. Police said Eley was arrested at the house. It is not known at this time if the homeowner will face any charges.
