As we all know, a burglary is the unlawful entry into a building or other structure with the intent to commit a crime, typically theft. It can take place at any time of the day or night and can be committed by individuals or groups.
In the event of a burglary, the most important thing you should do is contact the police as soon as possible and not touch or move any evidence that may be present. But in this case, a teenage boy called his dad while someone was trying to break into their home.
A former police officer shot and killed a burglar in the driveway of his home.
The incident occurred before 4 p.m. after the officer’s 13-year-old son, who was home alone, told his parents that someone was trying to break into the home, police department spokesman Alvaro said. The father rushed home and encountered the suspect in the driveway.
“The subject turned on him, and with a very large screwdriver, he made a threat to the officer’s life,” Sergeant Tommy of the Fraternal Order of Police, said. He added that the suspect had possibly made a move towards the officer, prompting the shooting.
29-year-old Anthony was rushed to the hospital, where he later died. He had previously served time in prison for burglary. The officer was the only one who fired a weapon. Authorities are conducting an investigation into the incident.
