Man Shoots At Five Home Invaders In Self-Defense, Fatally Striking One

posted on May 2, 2017
A man was relaxing in his Jacksonville, N.C., apartment last Tuesday evening when he suddenly heard a thud. When he went to investigate, he didn’t just find one intruder, but five men forcing their way in. So the apartment dweller opened fire.

Captain Ashley Weaver, supervisor of JPD Investigative Services, picks up the story: “During an attempted robbery and home invasion, the resident defended himself and shot the subject as he tried to make entry into the home.” One suspect, 20-year-old Stacey Ross Jr., was discovered in the parking lot with a fatal gunshot wound. The other four individuals—three 18-year-olds and one 17-year-old—were apprehended overnight and charged with attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

“We appreciate the public in calling in information that assisted police in locating the four subjects who fled the scene,” said Weaver. The county’s district attorney says no charges will be filed against the resident.
