JACKSONVILLE, N.C.– Two Camp Lejeune Marines returned home early Sunday morning to find two men in their house. The intruders didn't make it out of the house alive.

33-year-old, Maurice Skinner and 33-year-old, Diego Everette were identified by police as the men killed in the burglary attempt. Both men are from Jacksonville.

Skinner and Everette were pronounced dead at the scene, but according to Jacksonville Police Chief, Mike Yaniero it is unlikely that anyone will be charged in the shooting.

"The investigation is ongoing, however at this time there is no evidence to suggest that criminal charges be filed."

Chief Yaniero says the department will increase their patrols in the neighborhood.

"We'll be in the neighborhood. We try to stay in those neighborhoods but we will be especially vigilant in that particular neighborhood in the next couple weeks."

Marine Corps officials have not released the names of the Marines who shot the intruders.

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. – Authorities continue to investigate a Sunday morning shooting during a burglary that left two intruders dead.

The shooting happened around 2 o'clock Sunday morning at 107 Country Club Drive.

According to police, three residents returned home to find two intruders in the house.

Police say the intruders attacked the residents and gunfire was exchanged. The two intruders killed have been identified as 33-year-old Diego Everett and 33-year-old Maurice Skinner, both from Jacksonville.

The three residents of the home were treated and released from Onslow Memorial Hospital. Two of the residents are active duty Marines based out of Camp Lejeune.

No charges have been filed at this time. Jacksonville police say they are working with NCIS and the Jacksonville District Attorney's Office on the case.

You have to be real stupid to take up burglary in Jacksonville, NC, just about every house in town has a Marine in it.

Before I even read beyond the headline I say “Halluah” and I’m not the least religious.

Will check back to see if I should be contrite.

I should have issued a caveat before giving you a pass on being contrite. I am one of those “heathen” Methodists you hear such dreadful things about. You still have a pass though.

Guess that just ‘solidifies’ the true assumption that the ‘good news’ stays buried and the ‘gotcha’ stuff makes headlines.

Marines take care of their own (and the neighbors).
I was stationed at Lejeune in '69, but lived with my wife in a small trailer court in the town of Hubert.
While I was off on a Carib cruise, she had an auto accident. When the claims adjuster came over, he tried some "funny stuff" so my wife called a neighbor,
Within two minutes, five other Marines were at the door and "escorted" him back to his car. He never came back.

Updates and more info.

No charges Will Be Filed Against Shooters in Jacksonville Attempted Burglary

 JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - After nearly two weeks of investigation by the Jacksonville Police Department into an attempted burglary that left two men dead, Onslow County District Attorney Ernie Lee announced this morning that charges will not be filed against the shooters.

Until Friday, the circumstances surrounding the shooting that killed Diego Everette and Maurice Skinner during a burglary attempt at 107 Country Club Drive were cloudy at best.

Now, with the investigation complete, Onlsow County District Attorney, Ernie Lee detailed the events.

The two men were shot during an attempted burglary of the house, after being surprised by the residents, as they returned home. The burglars held them at gun point and threatened to kill them.

According to Lee, the Marine grabbed for the gun when Skinner looked away and a struggle for the weapon followed.

"The Marine resident was able to kick Skinner and free the shotgun from Skinner's grip. Skinner came at the Marine resident who was on the floor and the Marine resident two times.

The Marine resident then found Everette struggling with another Marine who was a guest in the home and shot Everette once in the rear end.
The whole altercation happened within 15 minutes, Jacksonville Police arrived on the scene at 1:55 am to find Skinner and Everette dead in the home.

Lee says the shooting of Everette and Skinner falls under North Carolina statute 14-51.2, commonly referred to as the castle doctrine.

"Based upon my review of the facts of this case, the occupants of the residence were justified in using deadly force against both everette and skinner because the actions of everette and skinner caused the occupants to reasonably believe it necessary to use deadly force to protect their lives."

The two Camp Lejeune Marines and one civilian of 107 sustained substantial injuries during the attack. lee says they were lucky to survive.

"The three occupants are fortunate that they did not suffer even greater serious injury or death. The actions of these three individuals in defending themselves may very well have saved their lives."

---Previous Story---

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - After nearly two weeks of investigation by the Jacksonville Police Department into an attempted burglary that left two men dead, Onslow County District Attorney Ernie Lee announced this morning that charges will not be filed against the shooters. 

Lee says back on April 15th, 33 year olds Diego Everette and Maurice Skinner attempted to rob the house at 107 Country Club Drive in Jacksonville.

The three men living there returned home during the robbery and struggled with Everette and Skinner over a shotgun that the two "would be burglars" found in the house.

During the struggle one of the residents who is a marine stationed at Camp Lejeune recovered the shotgun and shot both men.

Lee says the shooting was justified, “Based upon my review of the facts of this case, the occupants of the residence were justified in using deadly force against both Everette and Skinner because the actions of Everette and Skinner caused the occupants to reasonably believe it necessary to use deadly force to protect their lives."

Lee says he will not release the names of the Marine and civilian residents of the house or the marine guest who was with them during the incident.

A JPD investigation of the shooting also revealed that Everette and Skinner were responsible for two car break-ins on Country Club Drive right before that attempted burglary.

Generally speaking, it's not wise to f**k with ANY Marine.

Retrospectively, it's probably a good thing the bad guys were armed.

Otherwise, the Marines would have had to kill them with their bare hands and that would've been much more painful.

A dog just spoke to me in Dog-ese, and wants to know if we can replace the police with Marines.

I tried to tell him no, but he growled and told me to ask anyway.
