postheadericon Thug Shot In Both Legs By Homeowner During Burglary

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — When a homeowner encountered two thugs breaking into his own garage, he took the fight to them, and he did it quickly.

It resulted in two bullets, one in each leg, for one of the bad guys — pretty much putting an end to his budding cross-country career for the time being, at least.

As KOB 4 reports:

According to a criminal complaint, a burglary didn’t go as planned for Rodolfo Serrano-Urias. Things turned when he and friend broke into Warren Wild’s garage on Los Tomases Drive early Tuesday morning.

Police said Wild heard something and checked the garage. He had a .40 caliber Glock handgun. When he saw the men he fired one round to scare them away. That’s when the two took off.

But Serrano-Urias didn’t get far. According to the report, Wild shot Serrano-Urias in the back of the leg as he jumped over the fence in the backyard, but that still didn’t stop him. The suspect then took off down Sunset Avenue when the homeowner shot him in the other leg.

At least that’s what the suspect told police. According to the homeowner, he only fired at Serrano-Urias while he was in the backyard. He said he pulled the trigger to protect himself and his wife, who was also outside.

Police found Serrano-Urias in the middle of the street in front of the home with two gunshot wounds, one in each leg.

Once again, we see one of the worst practices in the firearms community: the warning shot.

Folks, if your firearm is out and you choose to fire, you need to be firing to neutralize a threat, not to make a point.

And, as this story bears out, this homeowner had to fire on at least one of the burglars anyway — it’s not worth it.

Firing a shot as a warning is rarely an aimed shot, and it’s often not a shot about which a shooter has thought that much. The odds of hitting something you really don’t want to go much higher.

Stay safe out there, folks.

postheadericon Two Thugs In NJ Target Off-Duty Cop For Robbery, Both Lose Their Lives

NEWARK, N.J. — When a pair of thugs attempted to rob a couple of folks in Newark, New Jersey, they were looking for a quick buck.

What they got were funeral arrangements.

As NJ.com reports:

At about 11:30 p.m., the officer was in the 100 block of South 6th Street in Newark dropping off an acquaintance and two children when he was approached by the two armed men, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Robert Laurino said in a release Monday.

One of the men apparently tried to shoot at the officer but his gun jammed, the prosecutor’s office said.

The officer shot both men — identified as Dante Holden, 19, of and Tymyr Wilson, 21, both of East Orange — and both were pronounced dead at the scene, Laurino said. Officials declined to identify the officer involved. A spokeswoman for Jersey City Monday issued a statement on the incident.

“We are thankful that our detective, who was a victim of an attempted armed robbery, is OK and want to thank the Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor for their assistance in this ongoing investigation,” said city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill.

She declined to answer any additional questions about the officer.

Yeah, score two for the good guys.

When a robber picks a victim, they really have no idea who they’re targeting, just like we don’t know who they are until they make that fateful choice.

These two made the worst, dumbest mistake of their lives.
