RIP for the kid. If someone who had never entered was running away, and I thought that maybe he was robbing me, I am sorry but I don't think that is grounds to shoot somebody. Now if they are inside then that is different. I think that guy acted to early on a false premise and should be held accountable.

Thing that gets me they did this to a couple of other houses from what the neighbors said, but this dumbass greated the door with a gun and shot the kid in the back while he was running from the door.:no They where knocking doors and running away. The kids call it Ding, Dong, Ditch. The freind that was with him came frantically knocking on my folks door to call 911. So my folks call then all hell broke lose.:fact Crime sceen, cops, media, etc.:argue

The guy came out of the house and shot him in the street, from what the freind said.:no To me their was no grounds to stand on. The guy has still not been arrested.

They could at least take the dumbass's gun away, that jumpy guy owning a gun is like letting a 7 year old ride a r1..something bad is bound to happen.

Its a dam shame. He is going to get arrested. At least he should be.
When i took my conceal weapons class, they said that it is AGAINST THE LAW to shoot a robber fleeing from the premises. No other member of that dick's family was present so what was he defending? The best and easiest way to tell if he was being a dick was to see if there was any shots fired through the front door or the house for that matter.
It is dam shame that he did not get arrested. DAM SHAME. RIP Mr. Drewes.

I'm having the hardest time figuring out this story!

First, the guy actually thinks a robber is going to knock on the door to get in? :confused:
If the guy honestly thought he was going to be robbed, why in the hell did he go to the door in the first place? Why not run to the phone and call 911? (keep in mind, the "robbers" aren't even in the house at this point)
Lastly, why on earth would this guy shoot the kid as he ran away?:confused:

I see all you guys points. But lets look at a couple things. First the most important. The homeowner: Lot's of people have guns and don't completely understand the law as they should. However, if this man can state in a court of law ( His lawyer surely will) that he was in fear for his life then it does'nt matter the circumstance , in or out of your house. Next, The Kid: At some point in life you learn not to [email protected]*k with people, like the old saying goes " It's all fun n' games till someone loses an eye." . I would'nt shoot someone for knocking on my door but if I caught them I'd certainly want to beat the shiot out of em'. Lastly, for those unfamiliar with home invasions, home invasions became pretty popular in Florida in the early 90's . It started with drug dealers ripping each other off by dressing as police and knocking on the door of another drug dealer then beating the crap out of them and stealing all their dope and money. Then they started doing it to anyone stupid enough to open the door. Just recently in Orlando we've had several home invasions where the robber knocked on the door and when the victim opened the door the victim was shot dead, or the victim was shot dead when they returned home. Also of note , my buddy whose a district Sgt has arrested several individuals in the past month for armed residential burglary to an occupied dwelling . They were all armed with long guns. Not to flame but the blame goes both ways in this one.

Based on what I have read, again for that matter, if the shot was from inside the house passing through the front door, i see his lawyer weasling this case out perfectly. BUT, if this dick step outside the house and then fired, fvck him. He deserves to go to prison.

This whole story is very disturbing. However, this day in age anything is possible and I'm not surprised. How unfortunate. :(

God forbid my car breaks down in front of someone's home with my wife in labor, walk up to the front door ring the door bell and...
I’ll just make sure I carry extra battery for my cell phone.

I remember few years ago something similar to this happened. Someone correct me on the details, but supposedly a drunken Asian male who got lost and didn't speak a word of English, walked up to a house and banged on the front door and got shot with 357 Mag. point blank by the home owner, because he thought the man was crazy.

It’s too bad that there’s no trust in existence. It's a cruel world out there
