Intruder killed in Henderson home invasion

Posted December 16, 2012

— Police are investigating a fatal shooting Sunday at a Henderson home that appeared to result from a home invasion.

Deyon Durham, 24, of 279 Faulkner St., was found shot to death at 1221 Montgomery St. shortly after 7 a.m., police said. 

The initial investigation suggests that Durham was breaking and entering at the home when the homeowner, whose name was not released, shot him.

No charges have been filed. Investigators planned to consult with the district attorney's office.

Durham had convictions, starting in 2005, for indecent liberties with a minor, sexual battery, breaking and entering vehicles, larceny and failure to register as a sex offender, according to state Division of Adult Correction records.

    I really don't feel sorry for the intruder..Even if I was in the homeowner shoes and they did charge me I would not care in a sense..

    It is illegal for individuals in Great Britian to own guns - and they have 6 times the number of home invasions as the US - enough said.

    And how do we think this might have turned out if the homeowner had not been allowed to legally own a firearm?

    Just askin' the question.

    "Since they've turned this over to the DA, it may not be as clear cut as it seem."

    This is probably just a policy issue since a death was involved. Pass it to the D/A for judgment.

    Am glad the homeowner was able to defend themselves and terminate the threat.
