Intruders killed in Jacksonville home invasion; no charges expected

READ MORE:

JACKSONVILLE, NC (AP) -- Police say they don't intend to file charges in a Jacksonville home invasion in which two intruders were killed.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that police Chief Mike Yaniero said Monday that the investigation of the Sunday shootings is in its early stages. He says it doesn't look like charges will be filed against the occupants of the home, two of whom are Camp Lejeune Marines.

Police identified those killed as Maurice Skinner and Diego M. Everette, both 33 years old.

Police say three residents returned to their home about 2 a.m. Sunday and found two people inside. The residents said the intruders attacked them.

The three were treated at Onslow Memorial Hospital and released, and police haven't given their names.

They deserve it if they were

They deserve it if they were going to possibly harm the Marines they're (the marines) are trying to help and protect this country while these two goons are trying to make it harder on their lives. Not cool. But thankfully the people were not harmed. I hate to say it but the intruders got what was coming.

Bravo!

Bravo!

Crazy to consider charges

I'm sorry to hear that the 3 homeowners were injured but at least the intruders won't be bothering anyone else now. I agree that it's a shame that charges were even considered......

Win for the home occupant and win for society...

The types who would attempt a home invasion likely cost all of us incalculable amounts in policing services, court costs, corrections systems, loss/damage to public & private property, real harm to people, illegitimate children, etc. Millions of future dollars and untold suffering were eliminated for the cost of two bullets.

They made 2 big

They made 2 big mistakes..........first, breaking in a home. Second, the home of US Marines. I say, well done and Semper Fi........The only thing that disturbs me is that charges were even considered.

How 2 Lower Crime

Getting Real About Cutting Taxes begins at the barrel of a shotgun. And God Bless America for it.

About Time

Put one in the "WIN" column for the good guys.

Thank you, Marines

Not only do they fight a war overseas, but now fighting a war in their own home! Thank you, Marines! You have eliminated 2 cock roaches from the planet!

Both have been in prison, 2nd chance for both. Bummer they picked the wrong house this time.

Best news!

:) Nice to see somebody adhere to the true gun control rule which is gun control means hitting where you aim.. Shoot enough of these scummy bastards and maybe they'll get the message and rethink their life of crime before they lose their life :)

Outstanding!

Good job guys, keep taking out the trash. I can't wait for the names of the criminals to be posted and for their family members to tell us what good people they were and they only made a mistake.

This is not a race issue! People like you make it about race. Simple fact of the matter is they were doing something wrong & paid the ultimate price. Kudos to the gents that protected their home. Can't blame em for that.
