    Homeowner Kills, Wounds Burglary Suspects

    POSTED: 10:55 am EDT August 9, 2006

    DURHAM, N.C. -- A homeowner killed one suspect and wounded another during an apparent break-in early Wednesday, police said.

    Residents of 3301 Dearborn Drive told police that two men kicked in their front door at about 1:40 a.m. and entered the house. At least one of the men was carrying a gun, they told police.

    A man, a woman and a 15-month-old boy were in the home when the incident occurred, police said.

    One of the adults shot and killed one suspect and wounded the second, police said.

    The first suspect, who hasn't been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The second suspect fled from the house. A short time later, a 19-year-old man showed up at the Duke University Hospital emergency room for treatment of a gunshot wound to his arm.

    The man was treated at the hospital and released, and police said he is being questioned by investigators.

    No charges have been filed in the case.

    As far as I know they do. Someone I used to work with said he'd been shot accidently one time and he was kept there until police arrived.
