More good news from the Lone Star State: “Two would-be robbers are dead after an attempted home invasion in Maypearl, but the homeowner is not the one who killed them.” But this one looked like it may have been something more than your average home invasion. myfoxdfw.com says, “A woman was home alone when two suspects, heavily armed with guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition, reportedly attempted to enter her home.” She called her husband who rushed home with a firearm of his own. “When the husband arrived home there was an exchange of gunfire. The two suspects were found dead.” Wait. Didn’t the article say the homeowner didn’t take the two out? . . .
Deputies say both men killed themselves. Police have not confirmed the identities of the intruders. One was found in a field. The other was found in a pickup truck.
That ambiguous account doesn’t really make it clear whether the two offed themselves on purpose or whether it was just a happy accident.
Should the homeowners have waited until the pros got there to handle the situation? Not of you listen to the local sheriff.
“It took us a while to get out here. You know how far it is and we’re not sure if we would have had the same outcome had the homeowners not been armed,” said Lt. James Saulter with the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office.
