[Video] Family of Teenage Home Invaders Speak Out Against Elderly Homeowner Who Shot and Killed Them
Well, here we go again.
As we reported earlier this week, two teenage home invaders were shot and killed by an elderly brother and sister in Sacramento, CA.
Now, it looks like family and friends of the teens are taking to airwaves to speak out against the fact that they were shot.
According to CBS Sacramento, the family and friends disagree with the shooting, while neighbors and residents who have been victims of crimes themselves side with the elderly homeowners,
“They were on their way out the door, and I just think it was wrong that they were shot,” said Christina Sambrano.
But many who live on Arcade Boulevard say the neighbor did the right thing.
“Justice was served,” said Robert Robinson.
Burglars hit his home twice before. The area is no stranger to crime that mostly consists of car and home break-ins.
“He was not an innocent bystander,” said neighbor David Keck. “I’m sorry the little boys or teenagers were killed, but if it’s my family, my family comes first.”
This is becoming a more and more common trend. As defensive gun uses seem to be on the rise, so does the number of families who are taking to public forums to express their outrage that their family members were shot in self defense.
