SOME NEVER LEARN: Intruder Dies Robbing Same House Where He Was Shot Last Time


DAYTON, OHIO — Dayton Police Department arrived on the scene to find a 22-year-old man had been shot and killed by a 43-year-old female homeowner in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

What was shaping up to be just another great tale of home owners defending themselves took a turn for the strange when WHIO began to uncover the checkered history of the robber.  Apparently, in 2013, DeBrandon Jurrod Dickerson, 22, of Detroit, had broken into this exact same residence.  He was a teenager back then and he had attempted the home invasion with the assistance of another teenager.  The female homeowner had a firearm then, as well, and shot either him or his accomplice in the arm.  Both teenagers were arrested at the scene of the crime.

So Dickerson apparently didn’t learn his lesson.  On Thursday, WHIO is rushing to confirm but initial speculation is that it is the same homeowner, same house, and same culprit as last time.  As if making an unsuccessful home invasion at 4:10 am almost precisely two years to the anniversary of the last time you did the same thing wasn’t lesson enough.

This was Dickerson’s last attempt.  He was shot at close range in the chest by the home owner and confirmed dead by the Montgomery County Coroner’s office.

Dayton Police Homicide Division Supervisor Sgt. Richard Blommel confirmed that DPD was first contacted by the woman when she reported that an intruder had gained access via the second story of the home.  The intruder confronted the woman and he was then shot.  Authorities confirm that even after the bullet struck his chest, he managed to escape back out through the second story and run three blocks before dying.


Sgt. Blommel reported that the woman had been brought in for questioning but charges are not expected to be filed against her — mainly due to the fact it was a clear-cut case of self-defense.

“You have a right to protect yourself if you fear for the safety of yourself and or your family,” Blommel said to WHIO.

Second time’s the charm, right?  I’m pretty sure that’s not how that saying goes.

Lesson of the day for criminals: If you attempt to burglarize someone’s home and you are shot and you survive, don’t go back and try it again… Wait, wait, wait… What am I saying?  Please do.  This is working out extremely well.  Just try not to bleed out on the carpet too much on your way out for your final 300 yard sprint to the finish line.

    Love the sarcasm at the end.

    • Gail Miller

      I was going to say something similar LOL!!! Agreed, that bit at the end was pretty awesome.

  • Dragan Blagojevic

    No more repeat offender.

    • Warren Gacsi

      The same outcome can be repeated for other home invasion perps.

  • ThominSC

    Wonder if he was even smart enough to realize he was there before………

    • mountainmiss

      Apparently he wasn’t smart. At all. Regardless of where he was.

      Same thing will happen at my little house. Except there won’t be a second time.

  • RC

  • Kwitcherbellyakin

    Sorry, but this made me laugh. Nobody has accused criminals of being both smart, or well planned. This guy should win a Darwin award. I hope he isn’t a father.

  • Just_Plain_Jim

    Vertical learning curve ‼

  • Edward R Barnett

    Love it ended with a happy ending for the home owner….seems she became more proficient at shooting….

  • Jim Screws

    I hope he didn’t procreate……………

  • C Weston

    NOT THE SAME GUY. A quick google search leads to a local Ohio news station, which released a story days before this one with the facts. TRUTH MATTERS. Please people, check sources, don’t believe everything you read online. I am happy that her aim improved though. ;) Hope others don’t try her again.

  • robertg222

    Well it supports the theory that having a gun doesn’t detour crime but it does a great job at stopping crime.

    • Its detours future crimes by the criminal if you end his existence on Earth.

  • Cisco

    Another win for society.

  • Kimberly Genereux

    If this was the same guy, he was not ther because he was “dumb”. This sounds like an anniversary plan for revenge. He was there to attack her.

  • Jason Stem

    Waiting for his family to “demand” the home owner be arrested for murder of their perfect angel who was getting their life turned around. Or that the only reason he was shot was because he is black and a white intruder would have been invited in for tea and krimpets.

  • Red Eye Robot

    And I thought the third try was a charm.

  • Bob Honiker

    He should have made a video.

  • Cal S.

    Well, I’ll be doggon… Lighting really does strike in the same place twice!

  • Alex

    I wonder if he wasn’t returning for revenge against the homeowner. Was there any report of the criminal having a gun?

  • ken ware

    This is why we need the 30 round Magazine, in case there are two of them. 15 shots each to make sure they want come back! I don’t shoot for anywhere but the face either! A good face shot will take care of him getting up and running away, and he may get two shots there! I will empty a Mag on them! As A Viet Nam Vet I want miss! .I was taught by the best, The US Army!

  • daewooparts

    “stupid monkey” :P didn’t learn the first time ! ,but WTF was he doing out on the streets just 2 years after a home invasion ! looks like the revolving door justice surely hit him in the ass on the way out

  • disqus_xp4GYx7DZk

    See ya squirmin’ vermin…!!!!

  • Jack Ryan

    Nice shooting. This time.

  • Jack Ryan

    9/10 criminals commit less crime AFTER they are shot. There are the guys like this one.

  • daryah

    My fuckin family grieving and yall disrespectful bitch wanna keep talk watch whats going to happen to all of yall that have anything negative to say if i cant get to you someone eles will

    • david

      Lmao fucking low life. I’m happy your fucked up waste of space family member is gone.

  • Jim

    He was back for pay back and waited a few years so not to be conected if he pulled the murder off. Whats funny is the castle docterine in ohio make sit impossible for the criminal and their family to recover damages from the shooting…ha ha! I hope the lady sues the gusy family for emotional pain,stress, loss of any work and the clean up bill.

    • daryah

      Im his father come to detroit and talk that shit I’m waiting on you

  • Stephanie Brubaker

    Sometimes you can fix stupid.

  • Keith Edward Brown

    Right here in my city… Smh

  • Warren Gacsi

    Forest Gump’s mother was 100% correct. Stoopit is as stoopit does… and that ”son of obama” was one incredibly stupid thing.

  • CraxyD

    “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes” kinda falls short this time

  • Katrina

    This young punk was heading to be a career criminal. Not sorry that he was stopped young before he could victimize more people. Sad he wasn’t raised better. Family can be such a strong influence–good or bad. I do hope the homeowner can find some good counseling to get her through the trauma of taking a life. Even police officers who are forced to take a life need help emotionally.

  • Lisa Dawn

    Liberals will be sad. They will say the homeowner was a terrorist for shooting a poor misunderstood burglar who just needed to steal a few things and be on his way. Damn chick with a gun stopped his plan when she should have just sat down with him, had some tea and forked over all her money and jewels. Poor poor misunderstood robber.

  • Lance Doggette

    i would say she has been spending more time at the range since the first
