MOBILE, Ala. -- Mobile police say a man who was burglarizing a home off Dauphin Island Parkway was shot and killed Thursday night.
A resident of the home on the 1300 block of Driftwood Drive North shot and killed 19-year-old Marcus Steele as he was trying to enter the home, said Mobile Police Officer Chris Levy.
Police arrived to the scene around 9:48 p.m. and found Steele lying in a driveway. Steel was taken to the University of South Alabama Medical Center, and he died later from his injuries.
Burglary is a crime that occurs when someone either breaks into a home or is otherwise there unlawfully to commit another crime.
Levy would not say what crime police thought Steele was there to commit. But he said it was not a "random act."
"Theres some kind of history," Levy said. "I cant get into that. All I can say is it wasnt random. He went to that house for a purpose."
At this point, no charges are being filed against the shooter, whom police would not identify.
"Were going to continue the investigation. If we determine that there should be charges, then there will be," Levy said. "Right now, we know Marcus Steele was committing a burglary and during his committing of that, he got shot. Thats what we believed to have happened right now."
Levy said an autopsy is being done to determine how many shots were fired. He said it appears that Steele was shot around his chin.
A patriot that spent extra time at the range!!!!! Good shooting friend.
Gee, thanks for the explanation of this difficult concept, Mr. Newpaper writer.
Whose got the Cap'n Obvious pic?
“Burglary is a crime that occurs when someone either breaks into a home or is otherwise there unlawfully to commit another crime.”
I’m so glad they clarified that. I didn’t inherit my family’s American Heritage dictionary, and dictionary.com can be iffy with my internet connection. God help us!
I love a happy ending.
....seems the deceased and the victim have a history....
deceased:”I’m coming over to yo house and gonna kick a**”
I love a story with a happy ending.
“I love a happy ending.”
So you’ve lived overseas. Yet another expression not found in my American Heritage dictionary, but I’ve lived overseas and in Las Vegas, so....
That shooting is about an hour from my house. When the word get out things will probably quiet down for awhile.
“Whose got the Cap’n Obvious pic?”
With a name like Marcus, no pic is needed.
The cleansing of the gene pool continues.
“That shooting is about an hour from my house. When the word get out things will probably quiet down for awhile.”
Well, I’m a bit away, but my peace keeper is handy and ready to go.
If the burglar was sent into the home on behalf of a voting majority, who elected him to burgle on behalf of other neighbors, where wealth and property would be redistributed based on decisions made by other freely elected parties, would it still be morally acceptable to kill the burglar?
And then you will be given some money, a Black Power Salute, and a ‘Fight The Power’ chant. The daughter you raped will offer to drive you back to your place in her BMW she got for her 16th birthday.
One less Democrat to worry about, or to vote on Tuesday.
Burglar turned gurgler?
An amusing irony is that a quick Google of the name of the perp (Marcus Steele) reveals that his name is shared with that of a prominent gay male porn star. Which I’m sure is going to result in some unintentional hilarity.
