AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -
The Auburn Police Department says it has arrested two people following a shooting that happened Sunday evening in the 800 block of Annalue Drive.
Officers were called to the residence just before 9 p.m. on a report that a man found two people inside his home. The homeowner fired several shots at the suspects who then fled the scene.
The victim reported two Samsung cell phones valued at $600 were taken in the burglary.

This breaks my heart.
What does being a homeschooler have to do with this?
Would the actions of the home owner have been either more or less justified if his kids were in public school?
You never know how well you’d respond in a high stress situation.
I’d like to believe my training would result in a high percentage of hits on target.
Stand and fire, instead of falling down backwards, more focused on exit than the target.....
Fire from covered position is best.
Homeowner needs more target practice.....
Check out their names. They are getting weirder and weirder. You can’t even make WEIRDER up anymore.
Can’t believe those names! Well anyway makes it easy to ID the perps.

Children raising children, I suspect. So sad.
Both names sound like an invitation to a gunfight...
Well... that's close to what happened.. ;-)
As far as I can tell nothing. Where are you getting that he home schools? I must have missed it.
(mock surprise) REALLY? Golly. Whodathunkit?
How are things in MI?
How are things in your neck of the woods?
If you will give me an email addy, the Great Linguini will tell all!
It’s the least I can do!
You are missed on the UT, but I think you must be very busy, so I will wait for your email info.
“As far as I can tell nothing. Where are you getting that he home schools? I must have missed it. “
It has to do with me leaving my reading glasses at home and not using the “Ctrl+” key
I misread Homeowner for Homeschooler
I read it through three times and wondered if I was going senile in my dotage.
G.G. Jackson was one of many women employed by agencies of the federal government. She had been born in Chicago's South Side in 1963. Her mother, Shavonna Jackson, had been fifteen at the time. Like many 15-year-old single mothers, Shavonna Jackson had not thought much about the realities of motherhood, including the immediate problem of what to name her offspring.
Concurrently, overworked interns on rotation in ghetto hospitals did what they could to entertain themselves amid 20-hour days in depressing surroundings. In 1963, as in all other years, one of the standard gambits among interns assigned to inner-city delivery rooms was to see who could cause the most outrageous name to be printed on the birth certificate of children born to ghetto teenagers.
The second week of February, 1963 saw some serious competition among interns in south Chicago. In a five-day period, there were Chicago-area births registered for Madison Avenue Washington, Epluribus Wilson, Nosmo King (inspired by a waiting room sign), Simian Cook, and Anus Brown. The award that week, however, went to a young doctor from Grosse Pointe, Michigan, who hated working in the Chicago facility. He had suggested to Miss Jackson that she give her infant daughter a distinctive, happy-sounding name, and offered one he thought appropriate. He pronounced the first name with the accent on the second syllable, and Shavonna thought it sounded nice. Like 'Gloria', only fancier. People who read the name would pronounce it differently, but Shavonna could not read, so the impact of the intern's joke was not felt for some time.
[G.G. Jackson's name is not revealed until hundreds of pages later...]
You can tell this is a small town network affiliate. They properly identify the homeowner who shot the burglar as the “victim”.
At least neither were named Tracey wassoo.
Obviously, the community needs more Midnight Basketball. Without adequate court time the only option for these ferals is to rob you blind.
Oh come on now. You can tell us. Really - - -

You’re the first person ever to ask despite my having posted that before. Either you’re the first curious Freeper or a frightening percentage of Freepers HAVE read UC. The latter thought warms my heart.
BTW, this exchange inspired me to check again and Unintended Consequences is BACK IN PRINT!!!!!
You should read it; it is the first of the great gun-rights novels and many other of the authors in the genre actually have tributes to Ross in their novels.
As to your question (remember — accent on the second syllable):
(wait for it)
Gonorrhea Gaily Jackson
I did manage to guess her first name but couldn’t come up with the middle. And I did note that UC was available on Bezos place (no not the WaPo, the other one.)
Probably from North of the tracks.
You are correct and from the western side. You are totally correct in your assumptions.
But even so, Auburn has had a very low crime rate. Growing up, we didn’t lock our doors, except for the murders committed by Eddie Seibold, and we kids could go anywhere and were safe.
Things have changed.
