Armed Louisiana Homeowner Stops Two Repeat Armed Robbers

posted on March 23, 2017

The doorbell rings, and an unidentified man stands on the porch. Once the homeowner opens the front door, another man appears—holding a gun. What the two robbers didn’t know, however, was that the homeowner was also carrying a firearm. 

Investigators from the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office told WBRZ-TV that the two suspects, 26-year-old Joseph Bruce Broussard and 31-year-old Drewe Christopher Schexnide, attempted the armed burglary Tuesday morning around 3 a.m. However, the homeowner was ready, shooting the robbers when they charged him and leaving both in retreat. 

One of the suspects managed to escape the scene but was quickly apprehended, along with his accomplice. The men were taken to a nearby hospital where both remain in critical condition. Police say the suspects were also wanted for another failed home robbery a few hours earlier in Baton Rouge. That homeowner was shot while wrestling for the suspect’s gun, but authorities report he only suffered superficial injuries.
