As reported, a Wright State University student used his gun to stop five intruders who broke in to the house he shares with a another room mate attending the same university.
Police say that five home invaders, with ages between 19 to 23, forced their way into a home on the 1000 block of Victoria Avenue in Fairborn, Ohio. The two Wright State University students who live in the home were present, and the attackers overpowered one of them while displaying a fake gun, according to news reports. The other room mate is said to have grabbed his gun and fired in self defense, striking two of the intruders and sending three of them fleeing. One suspected intruder, reportedly identified as Ta’Vaun Fambrough, is said to have been fatally wounded, while another suspect was shot in the leg and sustained non-life-threatening injuries which were treated at a local hospital, according to police. One of the room mates was treated for injuries he sustained in the attack, and the four surviving suspects were taken into custody.
Once again, armed self defense has allowed residents of a home to successfully defend themselves against more numerous attackers. Had one off these room mates not had a gun, this home invasion could have ended in a much more unfortunate manner. Fortunately, this student was armed – just like this other student, this mother, this woman, this man, this elderly man, this elderly woman, this disabled veteran, and many other Americans.
