"These three individuals came to this residence with the intent to burglarize it," Deputy Nick Mahoney said, "One was with brass knuckles, the other one was with a knife."The right three.
They said the 23-year-old resident was sleeping in the home when he heard "loud bangs" coming from the back door.
Mahoney said, "They were masked at the time, all had gloves on. They entered in through a black door, shattering the back door and they entered into the residence."
Deputies said the resident armed himself with an AR-15 rifle and walked toward the back door where he encountered the three masked burglars.
"Armed with a rifle, there were some shots fired, and, at this point, three people are deceased,” Mahoney said.
The Good of an AR-15
It's a soft-shooting rifle that almost anyone can handle accurately with training. That's what makes it dangerous, but "dangerous" does not equal "bad." Sometimes, having one can be very good.
