“Buy a shotgun, a double-barreled shotgun,” said Vice President Joe Biden. “Fire two blasts into the air,” he advised.
A Fayetteville, NC homeowner ignored that suicidal advice, and so he survived an encounter with four thugs attempting a home invasion:
Investigators say two men who attempted to invade a home early Friday ended up dead after a gun battle with the homeowner.
It happened in the 7500 block of Levi Road at approximately 3:37 a.m.
After the exchange of gunfire, both robbers left the home.
One of the men, 20-year-old Xavier White, was found wounded on Martha Court. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he later died.
Police said the body of 25-year-old Dominik Lavon Council was found along the shoulder of the road in the 5400 block of South Sumac Circle around 5:45 a.m.
Police said the homeowner was also hurt in the gunfire. That person was not identified.
Saturday, detectives identified two additional suspects.
They are 24-year-old Lamyer Gorminie Campbell and 24-year-old Derek Rashaun Hair.
Both Campbell and Hair have been charged with first degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit first degree burglary, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
The remaining two suspects are still at large.
