"From the emotion and the expression he had on his face, it really took something out of him" Michael Spigner said of his neighbor who fatally shot an alleged home invader last week.
According to WISTV, the alleged home invader, DeShawn Randolph, had a shovel in his possession as he broke into the home. The homeowner reportedly fatally shot Mr. Randolph during their confrontation.wistv.com - Columbia, South Carolina |
However, this was not the first time Mr. Randolph has been confronted by an armed homeowner. Marion Ammonds claims that he confronted Mr. Randolph in 2010 at a house Mr. Ammonds was building for his daughter. Mr. Ammonds was able to subdue Mr. Randolph at gun point without having to fire a shot.
Randolph served a year for the crime and was still on parole when he was killed in his latest confrontation with a homeowner.
Neighbor Michael Spigner, who heard the shots, sums it up best, telling WISTV: "When you're unjust, it don't profit." Perhaps, this story can serve as a lesson to other would-be home invaders before they end up on the wrong side of the law...and a gun.
