Armed Teen Shot In Face By Homeowner During Invasion, Homeowner Then Shot While Giving Chase

RAEFORD, NORTH CAROLINA — A teen was shot in the face while struggling to regain control over the shotgun he brought to a home invasion. The homeowner, Michael Glenn Bryant, wasn’t going down without a fight.

The suspects confronted Bryant, pointed a shotgun at him and demanded money.

Bryant and one of the masked intruders began to struggle over the shotgun.

During the struggle, Bryant was able to gain control of the gun.

The shotgun went off during the struggle, striking suspect Dangelo Malik Turner, 18, of Southern Pines, in the face and head.

It is at this point that Bryant –in my opinion– made the mistake of giving chase to the suspects as they fled. As he was following, the suspects shot at Bryant, striking him in the hand.

Turner was dropped off at the hospital and was soon charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflict serious injury, first-degree robbery, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

The second suspect, Carmen Ordaz, 31, was already in the Moore County Detention Center on unrelated charges.

Giving chase is risky business, and Bryant seems to be lucky that he was only shot in the hand. Typically, once the threat is gone, it’s best to get yourself to a safe location and call police.

    I agree with the author. Stay inside a defensible position, let the police go chase the criminals down.

      OK, Devil’s Advocate here: Understand a situation of a home invasion and you realize that the bad guy knows where you live (well duh), and that you really ticked him off by harming him without even giving him your stuff.
      He’s coming back, y’know, and next time, he won’t be so friendly, and he’ll have friends with him. He’ll pick the time, not the home owner, so the bad guy will always have an upper hand and the home owner will never know what or when it’s coming.
      I’ll let other people fill in all the blanks they want as to what the best course of action by a home owner might be.

    When the adrinalin is pumping in that moment of stress…the homeowner will chase without thinking…it is instinct….and no one knows what they will do….you may say don’t chase…but if it happens even you don’t know what you will do…
