DARDENNE PRAIRIE, MO (KTVI) -A deadly home invasion happened Wednesday night St. Charles County. It and wound up with the homeowner shooting and killing an intruder.
St. Charles County Sheriff`s Department investigators are calling the break in totally random and the actions of the homeowner justified.
The suspect who was shot and killed by the homeowner is identified by police as 20-year-old William Carlton of St. Charles.
Investigators say the home invasion happened around nine last night at a home on Du Vall Court just off Feise Road in Dardenne Prairie.
Detectives say a 65 year old man and his 56 year old wife were sitting downstairs watching TV when they saw Carlton peering in through their french doors.
Then police say Carlton threw a landscaping brick through the doors and barged into the home. We`re told the couple tried to run upstairs but Carlton started assaulting them.
The husband was somehow able to break away and go get a .38 caliber handgun from another part of the home.
Investigators say he returned and warned Carlton to stop the attack but Carlton refused.
The husband then fired a shot hitting Carlton in the chest.
Carlton was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police have not been to figure out any motive for the home invasion.
At this point in time it appears to be a totally random occurrence. The house was not selected out for any particular reason that we know of. We`re still investigating that but at this time it just appears to be a random incident This is a normally quiet neighborhood. We never have any issues out there in this particular neighborhood, said Lieutenant David Tiefenbrunn with the St. Charles County Sheriff`s Department.
The couple was shaken up but not seriously hurt.
They were not transported to any hospital.
Police say as a matter of routine they will present their evidence to the prosecuting attorney but at this point the homeowner is not facing any charges.

Good. Maybe that’ll teach ‘em not to do any more home invasions.
were there any White-Hispanics involved?
“aim small, miss small”
And, no tax payer money for a trial, a defense attorney, No tax payer money for jail time and rehab only for the perp to become a repeat offender... thank you Mr & Mrs America, as a fellow Mizzourian, I appreciate your hard work to keep our taxes in check, not to mention the grief you saved someone else down the road, God Bless You!!
This happened about three miles from my house. More info on the incident here:
“Investigators say he returned and warned Carlton to stop the attack but Carlton refused.”
What is point of warning the perp, that is in the middle of conducting a crime, to stop? Just shoot the idiot dead, stop the crime, and stop future crimes the idiot might commit.

Somehow I can’t believe that if he saw two college age atheletic young men in the house when he looked in he still would have crashed through the doors. He saw a “Herb” and a woman in her 50’s and his (last/worst) decission was made.
Not in this case...deceased perp is...um, sorry...was, a white guy.
Prolly, white like Zimmerman
