And Two Marks Are Better Than One...

Homeowner Shoots 2 Burglars

Spartanburg County deputies said two home invasion robbers were shot early Tuesday morning by the homeowner they tried to burglarize.

Deputies said that the men forced their way into the home on Harley Court about 4 a.m.

Lamont Dawkins, the homeowner, said that he heard glass break and someone kicking at his back door.

Dawkins told WYFF News 4 that the men were shouting that they were from the "Spartanburg County Police."

Spartanburg County does not have a police force. Dawkins said that he grabbed a pistol gun and hid behind his refrigerator.

When the men came into the home, Dawkins fired what he says was about five rounds. There was a bullet hole in the fence outside the home.

The men ran away."I was scared at first, but now I feel good, I just didn't want nothing to happen to me," Dawkins told WYFF News 4’s Mike McCormick.

Investigators said that Lashawn D. Miller, 22, and Haldane D. Oden, 21, were located a short time later in the emergency room at Mary Black Hospital. Both men had gunshot wounds."


Another Irish guy?
