And they want to take the law abiding citizen’s gun away from them. Let’s start with these type guys, that away their guns first how bout it. Then how would they feel when that intrudere comes knocking on their door?
DENVER (Reuters) – An intruder who forced his way into the mountain home of a Colorado deputy district attorney was shot dead by either the prosecutor or her police officer husband, authorities said on Tuesday.
The shooting, shortly before midnight Monday, comes two weeks after Colorado’s prisons director was slain as he answered the front door to his home, and two days after the district attorney of Kaufman County in Texas was found shot to death with his wife.
An assistant prosecutor in the Kaufman County district attorney’s office was shot to death on January 31, and authorities have said both Texas murders and the March 19 slaying of Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements appeared to be targeted killings rather than random acts of violence.
In light of the three previous cases, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation is leading the probe into the latest shooting, which occurred in Hot Sulphur Springs, about 95 miles northwest of Denver.
“There are no apparent ties to recent shootings; however, investigators continue to pursue all possible leads and background information on this (dead) person,” the bureau said in a written statement.
Authorities did not immediately release the names of the deputy prosecutor and her husband in connection with Monday night’s shooting.
The deputy district attorney made a 911 emergency call and reported that a man was at her door “behaving very erratically,” police said.
The prosecutor then told dispatchers that the stranger forced his way into her home. An altercation ensued inside and shots were fired, leaving the unidentified man dead, police said.
A spokeswoman for one of the agencies investigating the incident told Reuters that the prosecutor and her husband, himself a sheriff’s deputy, both fired at the intruder, but it is too early in the probe to know who fired the fatal shot.
The Colorado prosecutor and her husband both suffered minor injuries and have been placed on paid leave pending the results of the investigation.
