2 charged in attempted home invasion, 2 others killed

Investigators say two men who attempted to invade a home early Friday ended up dead after a gun battle with the homeowner.

It happened in the 7500 block of Levi Road at approximately 3:37 a.m.

After the exchange of gunfire, both robbers left the home.

One of the men, 20-year-old Xavier White, was found wounded on Martha Court. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he later died.

5. Do you see any indication

that the homeowner possessed drugs? I am not saying he did not but I see nothing to believe he did.
Is there a chance a team of burglars did not do their homework and picked a house with an armed owner?

8. I certainly accept some home invasion stories have that smell to them.

This one doesn't have any of the indicators yet though. So, not sure why you seem so confident. Certainly home invasions do happen for a variety of victim selection process reasons. Not all of them can possibly be drug dealers on the side, whether or not some have some other risk factor involved.

13. Well, he had a gun, right?

 

So, probably a drug dealer, possibly a paedophile, definitely mentally deranged.

Isn't that what we're told, over and over, here?

11. Drug dealers aren't often homeowners.

So I'd say your useless speculation has about a 80/20 chance of being correct.

so I could point out the delectable irony of your demanding stats in a thread you have attempted to hijack using unsupported speculation.

I trust this gem will not go unnoticed by the rest of group, as their astuteness is the reason I began participating here in the first place.

I'm rather impressed. If it's some sort of conservative witch hunt, well, if I knew how to embed a clip of Monty Python I would.

40. Naw, I wasn't around In the 60's and 70's

LDS refers to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or more commonly known as Mormons. I'm a member of the church, and when I was poking through the stock avatar photos they had this one of the angel Moroni, a prominent symbol of the church who appears on the top of all our temples in reference to the scripture Revelation 14:6. If you know many Mormons you will often see them with rings that have a shield and the initials CTR. It stands for choose the right as a constant reminder to make good choices, hence my original admiration for your previous comment. It would have been rather clever had it been intentional. But alas, it was only an attempt to dismiss me with the label of right-wing shrill. A tactic I am again confident that our astute company will recognize instantly.

19. I never said it was random

with or without

Burglars select homes for specific reasons. Sometime it is drugs, sometimes not, sometimes it is random.

Since you seem to have inside information, can you specify why the home was targeted? Homeowner was a known drug dealer, police found 30 pot plants but the new failed to report that...

That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. So your assertation can be dismissed.
