Georgia: Three Shot, One Killed During Home Invasion IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)-– On November 25, a little after 5 p.m., four people attempted to break into a home at 2771 Gresham Road in Dekalb County, Georgia.

According to police, there were several people inside the home. At least one of them responded to the break-in with gunfire. When the police arrived, they found Taneaious McCune, 18 with a gunshot wound which, despite the efforts of first responders and hospital staff, was fatal.  Jaxqueze Greier 23 suffered a gunshot wound and was critically injured, but survived. A 15-year-old boy, found at the scene, was also critically injured but is recovering at the hospital. Telvin Thomas 30, arrived at the hospital later and was linked to the incident. His gunshot wound was not life-threatening.

Associated Press reported there were at least four people inside the home, and says only one suspect exchanged gunfire with one person inside
the home. From AP:

Police say at least four people were inside the home at the time of the break-in. One of the suspects and a man exchanged gunfire. Officials say the shooting
appears to be justified and no charges are expected.

WSBTV 2 in Atlanta goes into more detail. From wsbtv.com:

Officers found Jacqueze Grier, 23, Taneaious McCune, 18, and a 15-year-old outside the home with gunshot wounds. A fourth person, 30-year-old Telvin Thomas, also was shot. Police said the four of them tried to break into a home. The suspects and one of the men inside the home exchanged gunfire.

Police said no charges are expected against the homeowner. Grier, Thomas and the 15-year-old faces felony murder charges in McCune’s death.

The WSBTV article specifically says the homeowner will not be charged. It is likely the homeowner was the person who fought back against the home invasion.

No makes, models or calibers of the firearms used are mentioned.

The felony murder charges against the three survivors are reasonable under the laws of most states. From justia.com

The felony murder rule is a rule that allows a defendant to be charged with first-degree murder for a killing that occurs during a dangerous felony, even if the defendant is not the killer. The felony murder rule applies only to those crimes that are considered “inherently dangerous,” as the rationale underlying the felony murder rule is that certain crimes are so dangerous that society wants to deter individuals from engaging in them altogether. Thus, when a person participates in an inherently dangerous crime, he or she may be held responsible for the fatal consequences of that crime, even if someone else caused the actual death.

In this article previously published on Ammoland in 2018, there were four states which did not have the felony murder rule. They were:   Hawaii, Delaware, Kentucky, and Michigan.

This story is one of many that goes underreported by the mainstream media because it shows a positive image of a law-abiding gun owner using that tool to defend their life and family. It is our responsibility at AmmoLand to report these stories to you the reader. While we will continue to report these stories, groups like the Crime Prevention Research Center, led by Dr. John Lott, are fastidious in studying the use of firearms for self-defense. Stay up to date with all news on self-defense by following CPRC and Ammoland.

The names tell the story

OlTrailDog

Sure ’nuff. Just like we can tell Duane and Ope are a couple of inbreed obese neckless half-wits sporting phenomenal beer guts that defy gravity and toothless smiles that allow the tobaccy to dribble down their stubbled encrusted chins.

Oh well, dealing with real racists, as opposed to fake news racists, and anti-Semites is just part of life in America.

hippybiker

Oh, aren’t you just so special. It seems that these particular characters are of an ethnic group that makes up approximately 12-13 % of the population but they account for 75% of the violent crime in America! Ive always held the opinion that BLM stands for Burn, Loot and Murder. The rioting in our cities kind of proves that hypotheses!

incorrigible

I often wonder what % of that 12-13% actually commit the crimes! The good people in that group (much more than half, I hope) are the ones I feel sorry for. Especially since they are usually the victims.

Tionico

well those “good people” don’t seem to care enough to stand up against the “unsociable” and violent/desructive behaviour of the “small percentage” that do commit the mayhem. Can’t tell me no one outside the crime crowd has the slightest clue what their fellows are up to.

Choogie

I don’t feel sorry for a damn one of them that get out there and run with them. They know who they are running with and what they are doing. Hmmmmm they came up with the Felony Murder Rule for a reason didn’t they. It’s for the good people that like to tag along when their friends are in the midst of murdering people.

USMC0351Grunt

You mean like the typical (White) RINO Republicans that create unconstitutional laws and vote for things such as the Safe Communities Act where Red Flag laws are the key to their success?

OlTrailDog

Well, thank you, but I’m not really special. Just another American who believes in freedoms for all citizens including due process that isn’t based on a person’s ethnicity or name. I also believe in standing against bigots, racists, and those who hate others based on the names given them by their parents. Actually hypothesis are not proven, but rather provide a possible answer within a statistical framework. For example, the earth is flat or a criminal can be determined by their name. Lastly, I will continue to stand with my original argument that people, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, political… Read more »

Nobody seeks these folks out, they volunteer for criminal status. This criminal element is probably about 5% of the chosen people.

Tionico

NO ONE here is judging them based upon their names. They are what they are. There IS however a strong correlation between names of this sort and a certain culture that generates them, AND an equally strong connexion between those factors and crime. Numbers cannot lie. Read John Lott’s work. And no one here gives a rip about the letters jumbled together and used to refer to this or that individual. What we DO care about is the high frequency with which those names are linked to incidents such as this, AND the way those incidents are “massaged” by certain… Read more »

USMC0351Grunt

WHOA? Do you mean too say that when Duane said, “The names tell the story” and then; Ope’s, “Duane, it sure as hell does.” is NOT judging them by their names? Or do you mean names like, Charles Whitman? Lee Harvey Oswald? John Hinkley Jr? John Wayne Gacey? Ted Bundy? David Berkowitz? Charles Manson? Ed Gein? Dennis Lynn Rader? Angelo Anthony Buono Jr and Kenneth Bianchi? You mean THOSE kinds of names? I can go on… And MOST of my names carry more dead bodies combined than yours does.

Ironically enough, literally EVERYONE was shocked when the beltway sniper turned out to NOT be white. It’s a statistical fact most serial killers are white.It’s also a statistical fact that people with the names of the bad guys in this article are not white.Don’t try to read racism into something that is not actually racist.

CourageousLion

Sure you’re special. Maybe you should have been more specific with your first post.

USMC0351Grunt

Now THAT is spooky the way you put that! Made me think Freddie Krueger was coming back!

shinyo

i spent 9 days in dell valley for a bogus charge of trying to defend my life against a stalker, my point is the majority of the women were hispanics followed by blacks and only 4 whites, what does that tell you

Rob

Apparently you read the wrong article; try again.

OlTrailDog

Actually, if you will scroll on up you will see the actual article. However, my response, somewhat written tongue in cheek, is to Duane, Ope, and those of like bigoted thoughts who regard a person’s name as indicative of their character. Sort of an anti-MLK approach to life. Sure, I understand it isn’t the person, but rather the darkness of hatred they have given themselves over too and there is hope for even the Duanes and Opes of this world.

Rowboat

It isn’t a race problem as you tend to apply . It’s a cultural problem. You don’t see the names like Wong Lee or Ho Ban Yon
In the crime stats .
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck , then it must be a duck – so take your virtue signaling back to your mom and tell her what a sensitive little guy you are- did I use your pronouns correctly ?

CourageousLion

LOL! Great come back!

Tionico

only if louts like you continue to push this meme. What crazy fantasy film did you get this ripe from? Those two names DO tell all the details we need to know their socioeconomic background.

Choogie

Is there any wonder so many disagree with you Ol TreailDog. There use to be a time when people that commit a crime that their ethnicity was spoken from the git go so these people could be identified. However one doesn’t have to wonder why they did away with that do you. Well the names of most of them are a good start towards identifying who they might be AND most of the time it’s a good bet as to where to start looking. What Say?

Ledesma

What are you doing here liberal? Another big N-word stake out?

truckdaddy

Must be cool when your mom is a spelling bee champion…..

OlTrailDog

Thanks. Yes, my mom was actually so outstanding that she was considered sort of a neighborhood ‘mom’ by the neighborhood kids.

CourageousLion

And dads?

USMC0351Grunt

Some of you need to open your eyes a little wider. Uncle Sam is CREATING the cultures that many of you hate. Others are fighting to survive and hopefully try to climb up out of the hell government created. The Father/Child relationships were set to be destroyed when Welfare was created in this nation. The Father was ALWAYS poison to the government because the Father’s nurturing brought discipline, nurturing qualities and backbone into the generations to come. Backbone that stood to defend rights, liberty and sovereignty. Having a father in the home was a threat to liberal Washington. Look back… Read more »

So THAT’S how they got those names! I thought someone had a Scrabble box and just picked out letters and used them to be “different”.

Taneaious McCune, yep it’s those Irish! LOL!

Misbehavior like this is only temporary. Just until they get “discovered” as rappers.

Y’all missed the sequel? DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A 17-year-old is dead and two children are wounded after a shooting at a candlelight vigil for a shooting victim in DeKalb County, police said.Officers responded to 2051 Flat Shoals Road just after 6:15 p.m. in response to a person shot. After they arrived they located a 17-year-old boy who had died from an apparent gunshot wound.On Monday, officers identified the deceased teen as Ian Hagerty.Additionally, a 16-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand and an 11-year-old boy was taken to the hospital after being… Read more »

Larry, I used to do contract work down there throughout the Atlanta Metro region. Here in NC, I was a state CCH instructor, teaching the certification classes in between travelling there. Even with decades of experience in the military as a retired Army veteran, being a competitive shooter and an instructor, I never felt I could carry enough firepower (a 1911 .45 and .44 Spec backup) when I had to work and travel around that dung heap of a city.

Be prepared to be called a racist by OlTrailDog after your post.Truth and obvious characterizations will get you labeled as such. If he were in LE, he’d be running around ‘perp searching’ for a Laplander from the wilds of Norway.

BOOHOO…a candlelight vigil. Mom crying…MY BOY SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN MURDERED! He was only trying to obtain a bit of money for his college edjewcashun. Someone should be held ‘sponsible for his deaf.

Only for ed Jew cation. We goy aren’t allowed to use that word! 🙂

USMC0351Grunt

READ all of what I wrote above.

LilHuck

Jacqueze & Taneaious have unique names but the parenting ended there. Why is it that 13 percent of the US population commits 75 percent of the violent crimes, yet they want us to believe that there skin tone makes them superior. I wish they were superior, because the US would have little to no crime.

USMC0351Grunt

Because the government wants it that way. As long as the government has the larger percentage of blacks under it’s control, the better.

Hazcat

Thanks for the report, Dean. It’s the only way these stories have a chance at circulation.

tatersalad

Im sure that this story would have had a different ending if it took place in the now gun control capital of the world Oregon. Most certainly there would probably be 3 dead inside the house instead of outside.

I sure wish I could post photos on here…. HERE is your 2771 Gresham Road in Dekalb County, Georgia address!

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2771-Gresham-Rd-Atlanta-GA-30316/14439114_zpid/ If you OBSERVE the photo, perhaps ya’ll can assume up a bunch of more shit?

USMC0351Grunt

Did anybody else catch the “difference” in the reporting of this incident? Do you notice, “four people attempted to break into a home at 2771 Gresham Road in Dekalb County, Georgia” Rather than the typical, IN THE 2700 BLOCK OF? Also, the crime reporting has changed ever so slightly that nobody seems to have noticed… Decades ago, car crashes were always on the front pages of the news, cars all smashed up, bodies exposed. Then slowly the news started to sanitize that style of reporting. The DUI’s, the drunks that killed and maimed so many people across the country drifted… Read more »

Well, they got the drinking age raised to that magical number of 21, which is what they wanted, so we don’t need to see any more drunk driver carnage. (For some reason, they don’t seem to be interested in raising the draft, voting and legal contract signing age to that same magical number.) My guess is they don’t go after road rage (unless it involves guns, which, as we know, puts it in a different narrative) because the kind of simplistic solutions they push for “gun violence” would in this case, involve banning vehicles, or maybe roads, instead of the… Read more »

No charges “expected”. This is why intelligent defenders are past involving authorities that weren’t there anyway. Because no charges “expected”.

Four shot, one died. Pity, only one.

gsteele

How can you say that, you savage, you! Society would have been much better off if they had all been just wounded “a little” – so that they could be wrapped up and put back on the street before the ink was dry on their booking sheets, as equity and reparational punitive policy demands. That way, their chosen careers would not have been adversely affected by the inconvenience of having to make up a reason why their acts were justified to their public defenders. After all, fairness demands that wild animals be set free to compensate for past unfair treatment… Read more »

I hope you’re a writer, because you sure have the gift! EXCELLENT observation of REALITY.

we need to have laws that make practice affordable, less got aways

Seems to me it’s thugs killing thugs – no sense in making any of them more competent.

BillyBobTexas

Well, Steve they MIGHT get more efficient?

Rob

Where in hell did you come up with thugs vs. thugs? Read the article again, these time REAL slow like.

Rowboat

Seems to me that there must have been a motive for the home invasion- Drugs, money, bad blood , or did they attack a house full of people for kicks ?
So I’m prone to buy into the Thug V Thug scenario .

Tionico

No address given to rather a stretch to make ANY inferences as to motive. DeKalb county contains man different demographic areas. More information is needed,

The vigil was held about a mile away from where the shooting occurred. Looking at the photo of the first address on Zillow.com I see a mix of both blacks and whites at the address. One could easily assume that the, Wiggers, or “whites” are just druggy white trash that wanna be thuggin’ wit the bros.”?

I think his response is in regards to Larry’s post re: the candlelight vigil for the perp.

USMC0351Grunt

Vigil was exactly one mile south of the house where the shooting occurred. Vigil location appears to be government housing neighborhood and the house where the shooting occurred appears to be on the outskirts of the public housing area where possible white trash hanging with black trash hung out.. Or so it may appear.

I question your assumption that Mr.Homeowner, confronted with FOUR invaders, at least one of them armed, is a “thug” because he shot back and managed to hit one of them fatally. He actually hit all four, pretty rmarkable. One permnently removed from play, three more at least temporarily whille they heal and deal with their “legal issues”. He ended the threat. That’s all any of us can hope for.

Choogie

Everybody thinks we need new laws. However if the laws on the books were to be followed you would see far less crime everywhere. We use to have the ELECTRIC CHAIR and that was a crime deterrent that seemed to work very well. Then the liberals got rid of that and the road gangs and the work in the prisons. Then they started treating prisoners like they were in a damn hotel and where is the deterrent for killing someone there. Now it’s three squares, cable tv, gyms and now just release them on the streets without bail. This country… Read more »

I have long been against the death penalty, simply because the Governments can’t be trusted with it! Though, at times it sure would seem fitting. I am also opposed to cash bail, except where there is a creditable risk of flight to avoid prosecution. If someone is too dangerous to be released on their own recognizance, they shouldn’t be released. And, of course, accorded a speedy trial!
