Man Shoots Armed Home Invaders Who Killed His Uncle

posted on April 14, 2017

“They just killed my uncle in front of me.”

That is the dazed recollection of Cortney Mosley, who was in his uncle’s Olive Branch, Miss., home when a group of men armed with rifles burst in Sunday morning. The invaders demanded money from the several family members, as well as Mosley’s girlfriend—who happened to be carrying a pistol. Mosley told investigators that a brawl quickly broke out, and the suspects began shooting. Curtis Mosley, Cortney’s 58-year-old uncle, was struck in the back and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

However, Courtney managed to grab his girlfriend’s gun and return fire, fatally striking suspect Deangelo Miquel Tinnin and injuring a second suspect, Miriko Dairyell Simmons. The other intruders fled the scene and remain at large. Maggie Dean, Curtis Mosley’s sister, told WLAB-TV 10 they can’t understand why their home was chosen. “We’ve been living in this house for over 50 years. This is a family house.”
