    What's up with Lakewood these days?

    A man and his wife were reportedly attacked and tied up by a trio of home intruders who forced their way into the couple’s Lakewood, Washington, home on Tuesday. The horrifying incident left one of the intruders dead and the others running for their lives, according to police.

    The 66-year-old wife was reportedly in the bath when three men knocked on the door. When the husband, 62, answered the door, he quickly realized he didn’t know them and tried to close the door. Unfortunately, the men — armed with a gun and knife — overpowered him and entered the home.

    The thugs beat the man severely, leaving him needing stitches, and cut his wife’s hand, according to court documents obtained by the News Tribune. The men then allegedly tied up the couple and searched the house for valuable items to steal. At one point, they momentarily left the house — and it turned out to be a huge mistake.

    During the brief time that the men were outside, the husband was apparently able to free himself, untie his wife and relocate to their bedroom. They locked the door and the man retrieved his firearm from a lock box and aimed it at the door.

    When the suspects returned and busted through the door, the husband opened fire. Police believe the man fatally hit one of the robbers. Police later identified the deceased suspect as 19-year-old Taijon Voorhees. All three of the men ran out of the house in fear.

    Police later arrested Duprea Wilson, 19, in connection to the robbery, which he reportedly told others had “gone wrong.” The suspects may have broke into the wrong house looking for drugs and money, according to investigators.

    Wilson was later charged with 12 felonies, including first-degree manslaughter, robbery, kidnapping and assault.

    I'm so glad that the victims are all right! Nice thing, the gentleman came across as very reasonable and articulate! He regretted having to shoot and had fled to the bedroom to avoid further confrontation. An excellent job, Sir!

    This is an OUTRAGE!!! WTH is Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton?! WTH is the ACLU and the NAACP?! WTH is Eric Holder with a civil rights indictment against the homeowner?!

    They don't even look like BHO, so I can understand why the POTUS hasn't spoken up saying the homeowner "acted stupidly".

    Poor Obama, another son of his going into the ground. We should feel sorry for this poor guy with all of these folks that could have been his sons dying, or heading to Prison.

    I occasionally get asked where's the best place to keep your home defense weapon. "On your hip."
