With all the reports of daytime break-ins, it sounds like staying home unexpectedly in some suburban neighborhoods is more dangerous than a stroll through South Chicago, well, any time. wral.com has the story: “Chris Griffin said his wife, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol.” That’s when one of the yoots decided to see if there was anything worth grabbing in the closet . . .
The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them, Griffin said. One man was struck, authorities said.
They ran toward a neighbor’s house looking for help.
“I heard somebody out at the road. He was hollering, ‘Help me,’ waving his arms, jumping up and down trying to stop traffic,” Crumpler said. “There was another guy in the background. I heard him hollering, ‘Help me. I’ve been shot in the chest. I’m dying.'”
The wounded man then started toward Crumpler’s house.
“He started in this direction. I stepped inside and got my revolver,” he said. “I told him to hold it.”
The man then ran into the woods, Crumpler said.
Michael Bynum (above) was arrested while is pal Christopher Joseph will be joining him once the hole in his torso closes up. As we’ve said before, home carry.
