Collierville, Tennessee

From Huntsville’s of December 19, 2005
Police say homeowner shot one, others scattered

Police in Collierville say a homeowner shot and killed one of several people who broke into his house over the weekend.

Police Lieutenant Greg Flint says homeowner Brian Harper was awakened by his burglar alarm early Saturday and fired at the intruders with a .45-caliber handgun, striking one of them. Flint says the others scattered and Harper doesn't know if the several other shots he fired hit anyone else.

Police say none of the home invaders fired a weapon, but investigators don't know if any of them had one.

Police identified the dead intruder from fingerprints and say he was 28-year-old Lakim Duffy.

His police record shows arrests since 1998 for violations including criminal trespass, especially aggravated robbery and cocaine possession.
