Tennessee Man Defends Home From Armed Trio

posted on August 29, 2015

Police officers responded to a home in Springfield, Tenn., in response to a possible robbery early Tuesday morning. According to the victims, there was a knock at the door. The resident, identified by police as a Hispanic male in his 50s, armed himself with a gun and opened the door to find three men with firearms. The resident and alleged robbers all began shooting, witnesses told police. 

As the shooting started, the three suspects fled on foot, but one of the suspects later turned up at a local emergency room with a bullet wound. Police said the wound was not life threatening.

“Robberies matching this same pattern targeting Hispanics in our community have been occurring with some frequency in the last two years; we believe this robbery is tied to them,” said Police Chief David Thompson. The incident is still under investigation by police, and further information will be released as it becomes available.
