HANOVER TWP. — One suspected home invader is dead and another injured after the two men were shot by a resident who was trying to defend himself, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning, Aug. 8, in the 1100 block of Beissinger Road. Two black males entered the home, assaulted a man and demanded money, according to a press release from the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

The resident, who neighbors say is the homeowner’s nephew, told deputies the men had a small caliber handgun and “struck him in the head with the firearm.” He then fired at them with an automatic weapon. When police arrived, they found the two men near the door with multiple gunshot wounds.

The men, whose names have not been released, were flown to University Hospital.

Butler County dispatchers reported Sunday afternoon that one man died at University Hospital, and the other man was scheduled to be released from the hospital Sunday night.

The house where the shooting took place is modest, with debris and a pile of crushed beer cans littering the side yard.

Jim Lakes, who lives across the street, was perplexed about the incident.

“What’s strange to me, and I’m not trying to be derogatory, is why two burglars would pick on that house when you have multihundred-thousand dollar houses over there,” he said, waving his arm toward the nearby valley.

Lakes said he didn’t hear the gunshots and he was shocked that his dog, a German shepherd who he said is trained to attack, didn’t bark when the gunfire erupted.

Guy Metcalf, a longtime neighbor, said the residents have always been quiet, good neighbors.

“There have never been no problems, like anything period,” he said. “Never, nothing.”

The Butler County Crime Scene Unit is investigating the incident.

Many reporters in this day and age would think this is an automatic weapon....

Semi automatic or automatic, it shouldn't matter as long as it's legal and the owner knows how to safely use it

Yeah well the remark from the neighbor across the street does raise some red flags though. Most of the home invasions that have been occuring in my area usually have to do with drug deals gone bad.

At this stage, it might be a bit early to portray the "citizen" as "law-abiding." Let's see what happens next. I'm not a cynic, just a guy who knows a lot of cops and DAs. :D

And yes, as suspected, he used a semi-auto, not an automatic. Damn ignorant reporters.

I think with a Mosin the batting average would be 1000 not 500........LOL.

Butler County in Pa. Thirty miles north of where I grew up. It IS Class 3.
My step brother has a FA Mini-Uzi as his carry gun.

I would say he is batting 1000. Hit both, stopped the attack, and lived.

"That’s when Gabbard went to another room and returned with a 7.62 mm caliber semi-automatic rifle."

You're right! Could've also been a Mini-30 or an SKS.

"Dwyer said one of the suspects fired at least one round from a small caliber handgun before it jammed." :D

This is funny. :rofl: :rofl2:
