LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A homeowner fired gunshots at a group of burglars breaking into his home, injuring at least one who was identified when he left a car, registered in his family’s name, in front of the crime scene.

The shooting happened Monday, Feb. 7, in a gated community near Cimarron Road and Oakey Boulevard.

The homeowner told police he was in an upstairs bedroom around 7:30 p.m. when his dogs started to growl, an arrest report obtained by the 8 News Now I-Team said. The homeowner then looked at home security cameras on his phone, seeing four people wearing hoods and masks attempting to break-in.

The man then went into his closet, got dressed and grabbed his gun.

As the burglars gained access to the house, the homeowner walked into a balcony area, which opens to the floor below, shooting at three of the suspects five times, the report said.

One round hit one of the suspects. All four suspects then ran from the home, police said.

During their investigation, Metro police noted an unregistered Audi sitting in front of the victim’s home. The VIN number came back to a woman out of Texas with the last name Freeman.

About an hour after the shooting, a man, later identified as Leroy Freeman, 28, arrived at Spring Valley Hospital with a gunshot wound, police said.

Birmingham, AL


A teen robbery suspect was shot to death Saturday afternoon by a parking lot attendant near the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex.

Police identified the slain teen as Chico Guest. He was 17 and lived in Center Point.

The shooting happened just before 4 p.m. at 10th Avenue and 18th Street North. That is near the DEA and FBI headquarters.

Sgt. Rod Mauldin said officers responded to a report of a person shot. They arrived on the scene to find Guest unresponsive on the ground with a gunshot wound to the chest.

He was pronounced dead on the scene by Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service....

Mauldin said the preliminary investigation suggests Guest and the other wounded person were involved in a robbery when they were shot. The victim of the robbery – the shooter - was working as a parking lot attendant when the robbery occurred, and he shot the suspects.

Mauldin said the attendant has been cooperative in the investigation.
