Girlfriend-Stalking Home Invader Fatally Shot During Attack

posted on September 6, 2016

Brian Kim was just leaving his Georgia residence with a friend, Julia Brooks, last Sunday night when a cell phone app alerted him to a possible home invader. Returning to the house, they discovered a man rounding a corner and moving towards them in a “threatening manner.” The intruder was armed.

Fortunately, so was Kim.

Brooks recognized the attacker as her ex-boyfriend, Robert Peak—a person she had tried to escape by moving to another state. There was an exchange of gunfire between the two men, but Peak was the only one struck. When police arrived they discovered Peak, who had stumbled to the driveway, dead at the scene. 

Authorities said the suspect carried identification with several aliases, and that a car with Louisiana license plates—possibly Peak’s rental—was located near Kim’s home. The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office also said a prowler was reported in the neighborhood the night before the shooting, and it is now believed to have been Peak.
