    The three teens allegedly approached the home and attempted to rob three people in the front yard, the sheriff's office said Monday night.

    A neighbor told Atlanta ABC affiliate [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that he heard gunfire around 4 a.m. Monday and ran outside to see what happened.
    Who in the heck is in their front yard at 4am??? Something tells me there was illegal drugs involved.

    They could have simply be leaving for work too. By that time I'm already at work.

    If you heard gun shots at 4 a.m. would you "run outside to see what happened"? I know I wouldn't.

    Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Deputy Lee Thomas posted on the department's Facebook that officers were called to a residence on White Oak Court in Conyers, Georgia. Deputies found three boys with gunshot wounds and began administering first aid. Two of the teens were taken to an area hospital, where they were pronounced dead from their injuries, while one was pronounced dead at the shooting scene. They were later identified as juveniles from Conyers, Thomas said.The sheriff's office said the three were killed during a shoot-out with the resident on White Oak Court. Investigators say the three teens had their faces covered as they approached the residence and attempted to rob three people in the front yard, Thomas said. One of the attempted-robbery suspects fired shots at the residents before one of the intended robbery victims returned fire.Georgia law says, "A person who uses threats or force in accordance with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], relating to the use of force in defense of self or others, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], relating to the use of force in defense of a habitation, or [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], relating to the use of force in defense of property other than a habitation, has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and use force as provided in said Code sections, including deadly force."The victims of the attempted robbery were not hurt.I got this a few minutes ago on the Rockdale, Ga. site. Clears the water a bit. Even if the home owner is a druggie and the predators tried to rip him off. The shoot is still good according to the articles I've read. Ironically, this is the case it is the first time I ever rooted for a drug dealer.

    The investigation is still active, and the Sheriff's Office is asking for anyone with information in connection with the shootings to contact the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office at 770-278-8000 and speak with Investigator Dwayne Smith or Sgt. Jeremy Best.

    It's not a stand-your-ground case. The left would love it to be stand-your-ground because they want to put three church-going, fixing-their-lives, black kids up as victims of stand-your-ground.

    But this was pure self-defense. The thugs fired first. Stand-your-ground laws or not, a person has the right to defend themselves with deadly force against deadly force.

    Deputies said a homeowner shot three teens who were wearing masks. Channel 2's Aaron Diamant learned two of the teens were brothers, 15 and 16 years old. A third was a 15-year-old boy.

    [---]

    Investigators say three people were at the home, including a woman, when the shooting happened.

    The homeowner who shot the masked intruder is a man. Neighbors say he's a truck driver who owns a semi-automatic rifle and is highly protective of his mother.
