An armed Frum homeowner took down a burglar on his property in Queens, and the dramatic incident was all captured on security cameras.

Sources tell YWN that the homeowner was first alerted to trouble when his dog started barking at 1:00AM at his home at 73rd ave 147th street in the Kew Gardens Hills section of Queens. The man, who is a licensed gun-owner and well-trained in the use of firearms, ran out of his home and found three men on his property.


As can be seen in the footage below, two men are seen running off the property and jumping a fence with the homeowner in hot pursuit. The man keeps searching the yard when suddenly a third man is seen. The homeowner immediately orders the suspect onto the floor at gunpoint, telling him not to move. Meanwhile, the mans wife was inside the home calling police. Officers arrived seconds later, and quickly took the man into custody. The other two suspects had fled the area.

Watch the videos below to see the importance of vigilance, remaining calm and being properly trained. Boruch Hashem, he and his family are safe. The video also shows the importance of good lighting and functioning cameras.

The man is grateful to the brave officers of the 107th Pct who arrived speedily, apprehended the suspect and calmly verified the homeowners credentials.
So the home owner wasnt arrested? This is Queens NY right?

LA PLATA, Md. - Thirteen days after a Charles County Sheriff’s Deputy shot and killed a man firing a rifle in a La Plata neighborhood, FOX 5 has confirmed the gunman was shot first by a homeowner who was defending himself and his family.

It's a fact that was not initially disclosed by law enforcement.



Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff's office, says Dr. De Quang Tran walked onto the front lawn of a home on Spring Oak Drive on April 26th and began shooting at the house with a rifle.

The homeowner inside, who has not been identified, returned fire with a small caliber handgun, wounding Dr. Tran, Richardson said.

The exchange of gunfire reportedly lasted several minutes.

Richardson says a deputy was in the neighborhood within five minutes of the first 911 call, which came from a person reporting a home invasion.

The deputy, seeing Dr. Tran with the rifle, then opened fire and killed the doctor.

Richardson says several children and an adult were inside the home when Dr. Tran opened fire. One person—an adult male—suffered a graze wound, apparently from flying shrapnel.

Investigators still don’t know what set Dr. Tran off on his rampage in the neighborhood. No one has reported any animosity between Dr. Tran and anyone living in the cul de sac.

As for not immediately disclosing the exchange of gunfire and the wounding of the doctor, Richardson said “we wanted to make sure that the evidence matched the information that was being reported to us. The man was defending himself and his family. We had multiple crime scenes, a lot of evidence and it simply took a lot of time to analyze it”.

When FOX 5 first visited the neighborhood on April 27th, no one mentioned an exchange of gunfire and the homeowner who shot Dr. Tran did not respond to a knock on the door that day.

Only one neighbor was willing to go on camera.

Heather Delselva said another neighbor told her Dr. Tran "was just going through the mailboxes and then he saw him go up to the other house down the street, and that is when he realized that something (was) going on and so (he) called 911, and 911 told them they had already gotten a call and there was police on the way."

"One of the neighbors said he had an army helmet on, which he left on the mailbox of the neighbor's house that he went up to," Delselva added.

Poilce say the incident began just after 10 a.m., when Dr. Tran went up to the front door of his next door neighbor’s house and knocked out the glass from a storm door, and then tore a security camera from the door frame.

Tran then made his way to a nearby cul de sac where he opened fire with his rifle.

Online records indicate Dr. Tran was a surgeon who at one time had a relationship with a local hospital. State records show his license was in good standing.

The reasons for the gunfire and violent behavior remain a mystery.

VINEYARD — An attempted home invasion robbery in Vineyard resulted in one of the would-be robbers being shot and killed by the resident and at least six others arrested, according to police.

About 6:20 p.m. Tuesday, police were called to the Concord at Geneva apartments, 125 N. Mill Road. The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that one man had been shot to death during a home invasion robbery.

Four homeless people have been arrested for investigation of robbery: Baboucarr Trawally, 27; Diego Fuentez, 18; Gabriel Little Hawk Trane, 21; and Sarh Sone Jabbah, 18. A total of four males and two females were taken into custody, according to a police affidavit.

Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon confirmed Wednesday that two juveniles were also taken into custody and booked into the Slate Canyon Detention Center. One was arrested for investigation of robbery, and the other had a warrant for being a runaway, he said.

Additional charges could be filed against all the adults and juveniles as more evidence is collected during the investigation, Cannon said.

The name of the man killed was not immediately released.

Cannon said the home invasion was a targeted attack.

After interviewing the people arrested, Utah County sheriff's detectives learned that the group traveled from Salt Lake City to Vineyard “to rob and assault the intended resident,” the affidavit states.

The suspects believed that the homeowner had drugs and had also assaulted a female friend, according to the affidavit.

“The plan was to assault the male resident, in revenge, and steal his narcotics. During the robbery attempt one of the lead male suspects was shot by the resident,” the affidavit states.

Trane and Fuentez “both admitted their friend got shot in their presence and they tried to help him. Both became visibly emotional when speaking about it,” according to the affidavit. “They admitted they thought their friend was deceased and got scared. They left their friend behind and fled the scene in the vehicle.”

Based on the evidence collected Tuesday night, Cannon said the man who fired the fatal shot appeared to be acting in self-defense.

“On the face of it, that’s what it looks like,” he said.

The resident was not arrested. However, a follow-up interview with the man and his attorney was scheduled for Wednesday. Cannon said detectives “want to take a deliberate approach and make sure we don’t jump to conclusions that are wrong.”

Cannon said police were also looking for additional suspects who were involved. Investigators believe they are looking for more than one person, but did not have a confirmed number as of Wednesday.

Anyone who may have witnessed the events at the apartment complex on Tuesday and hasn’t talked to police yet is asked to call 801-851-4000.

Correction: A previous version incorrectly spelled Sarh Sone Jabbah’s first name as Sarah.

FARGO, N.D. — Last Friday, Cass County deputies responded to a report of a gunshot at Harness Mobile Home Court in Casselton, ND.

“The suspect, identified as William Dittmer Jr. called 911 and explained that there was an argument and physical altercation at his address outside near his vehicle between he and the victim, identified as Duane Turchin,” said Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner.

During the disagreement, Dittmer fatally shot his neighbor and was subsequently charged with murder and taken into custody by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

Dittmer claims the shooting was an act of self-defense.

“Mr. Turchin was a considerably larger man. He had presented himself as a challenge to Mr. Dittmer,” explained State’s Attorney Birch Burdick. “He was present on Mr. Dittmer’s property and challenging him right there at his car. The evidence indicated that when Mr. Dittmer got out of his car, Mr. Turchin put his hand around his throat and was squeezing his throat.”

The evidence includes Sheriff’s Office photographs that show a spilled drink on the drivers side window of the vehicle, which Dittmer Jr. said was thrown at him. Photographs also show faint, red scratch marks on Dittmer’s neck. This was corroborated by Dittmer’s girlfriend, Adrienne Johnson, who saw the altercation from inside the couple’s home.

Upon review of the evidence, the State’s Attorney office made the decision not to prosecute Dittmer and he was released from custody three days after he was initially charged.

“We had concluded that we would not be in a position to disprove self defense beyond a reasonable doubt, which is what we would need to be able to do,” said Burdick. “For that reason, we have declined to charge Mr. Dittmer on this case.”

Burdick says Turchin’s actions of having his hand around Dittmer’s throat and pinning Dittmer against the vehicle legally qualify as serious bodily injury and/or aggravated assault and therefore, they are unable to prove that Dittmer’s use of deadly force in self-defense was unjustified.

No charges will be filed in a deadly home invasion shooting that left a Buffalo man dead.
No charges will be filed in a deadly home invasion shooting that left a Buffalo man dead.
Union County Sheriff David Taylor said the incident occurred just after midnight Tuesday in the vicinity of 1202 Main St., Buffalo. When deputies arrived they found a man laying in the front yard of a home.
EMS was called to the scene and medics were unable to revive the man later identified as 27-year-old Victor De Andre Tiwo Hair of 1202 Main St., Buffalo.
Taylor said deputies found Hair lying on a weapon when they arrived. Hair had been shot while inside the home after he kicked open the front door brandishing a weapon.
Two children, a man and a woman were inside the home when Hair broke into it, Taylor said. The woman ran down toward the bedroom when Hair started firing his weapon.
Taylor said Hair was met in the hallway by Antwan Manquel Booker, 34, of Union who exchanged gunfire with him. Hair was struck by gunfire and ran from the home falling in the front yard where he died.

After the shooting, the woman grabbed her two children and fled across the road to get safety and call 911. Taylor said Booker left the scene after determining Hair had acted alone.
Taylor later received a phone call from an attorney who said he was with Booker who was involved in the shooting incident. The attorney and Booker then went to the Union County Sheriff’s Office to give statements about the incident.
Statements were taken from Booker and other witnesses at the scene. Taylor said investigators determined the shooting stemmed from a domestic violence call on Sunday.
Deputies had outstanding warrants on Hair for domestic violence third degree and two counts of assault and battery third degree. Taylor said deputies had been unable to locate Hair and the woman living at the house where the shooting occurred had changed the locks because she was in fear of her and her children’s safety.
Taylor said information about the shooting was taken to Assistant Solicitor John Anthony who reviewed the case. It was then determined Booker had been invited to the house and had the right to be in the home and that the shooting was in self defense.

On the evening of 5/12/2020, Stamps was looking at M1 Carbines and trying to figure how to make one his. The wife spied the web page he was looking at and went to investigate. After some pointed questioning, the perpetrator tried to escape but was shot down with logic, state law and a final decree. The case is still pending but no charges has been filed at this time.

Although I would not leave the scene, nowadays, 'lawyering' up is the only way to go if you're involved in a SD shooting.

(Personally, I think everyone should sit down with a lawyer before making a statement.)

Agree 100%. God forbid I'm ever involved in a SD shooting I will not be saying a single word until my lawyer is present. Too much at stake and too easy to incriminate yourself without even realizing you're doing it.
Zip the pie hole and let the councilor do what they're paid to do.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Police have identified an 18-year-old man who was shot and killed Wednesday night by a homeowner in Scottsdale after he was found naked inside the victim's residence.

Scottsdale police say the incident happened around 10:45 p.m. near Pima and Happy Valley roads.

The homeowner was reportedly doing work on the property when the family dog alerted him to some type of disturbance. When the father of the family entered a room to investigate, he found that one of his children had been confronted by a naked man, identified Friday as Cameron Yoe.

Police say Yoe was holding a large piece of wood in a threatening manner and charged at the resident. The resident then pulled out a gun and shot Yoe twice, killing him.

The 41-year-old resident was home with his wife and three children at the time. No one else was injured at the time of the shooting.

Police say that earlier in the evening around 9 p.m., officers were also called to a separate home in the area for a report of an attempted home burglary, but a suspect was not found. Police say the description of the male intruder in the first attempted break-in matched the description of the man shot and killed in the second incident.

No arrests have been made in the case as police continue to investigate.

A security guard shot a man suspected of shoplifting at the Safeway in Baltimore’s Charles Village neighborhood Monday morning, police said.
The shooting happened just after 9 a.m. at the grocery store, at 2401 N. Charles St., said detective Chakia Fennoy, a Baltimore police spokeswoman.
The armed security guard confronted the man and noticed he had what appeared to be a gun, police said. The security guard shot the man in the ankle during a brief struggle, police said.
The suspect suffered non-life threatening injuries, Fennoy added.
Frankie Phillips, 32, who lives near the Safeway, said he saw the suspect “waving something” while in the store. Phillips said the security guard told the suspect to drop his weapon nearly “half a dozen times” but he refused.
When a gun went off, people nearby “completely froze," Phillips said.
“I could see that the whole store was shaken up. Some people did not know where to go or what to do,” he said.
