ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - Orangeburg County sheriff's deputies say a homeowner shot and killed a man who broke into a home.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says 21-year-old DeShawn Randolph used a shovel to break a back window of a home near Orangeburg around 11 p.m. Sunday.

Deputies say the homeowner grabbed a gun and shot down the hallway. Randolph was struck and died from his wounds.

An autopsy was planned Tuesday.

No charges have been filed against the homeowner.

It is not clear if the invader was armed with the shovel when he was shot.

So the HO stuck his DB shotgun out the bedroom door and let loose with two rounds?

Joe Biden got it just about right.

Oh well, he’s taking a dirt nap now....

“broke in with a shovel”

Broke in using a shovel.

Or— He and his shovel were together when they broke in.

Well.. That’s one dead digger. Likely there are other diggers in the neighborhood that’ll think twice about diggin’ the wrong house.

Two of the “Three S’s” were already covered (shoot, shovel...).

Now if the shooter had only “shut up”.

Home must have been a shotgun shack.

A shotgun house/shack is one where you can shoot in the front door and it would go out the back door. I don’t think shotgun houses had a hall but this guy did good!

After using the DB shotgun, I expect there was some temptation to use the shovel so thoughtfully provided by the perp.

Thank you, SeminoleCounty!

Yes he did. Do you suppose he was an aspiring rapper, who was a nice boy, who loved his dog, and was turning his life around?

No, if you want to do it right “Biden Style”, you just shoot through a closed door.
