Same Gang, Different Members, Same Result — Homeowner Does It Twice In Two Weeks


PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA — A homeowner successfully shot and killed an intruder whom Palm Beach County deputies recognize as a member of the flimsy and poorly represented .  This gang, which consists of mostly self-delusional thugs tossing around dime bags, made the fantastic choice to attempt to rob and harm the same homeowner twice in as many weeks — with the same result happening both times.

Let’s rewind.  Event 1 happened in mid-August.  According to the Palm Beach Post, two armed robbers –  and an unnamed accomplice – drove up to the home owner’s house.  Lowe’s accomplice posed as a food delivery boy and walked up to the front door.  Apparently, the home owner already knew this was a trap.

Lowe was unphased by the fact the trap had been prematurely sprung and got out of the car with his AK-47.  The homeowner yelled to his family to call 911.  Both Lowe and the accomplice got the picture, jumped back in the car and left.  Lowe was apprehended by PBSO not long after that.

Alright.  Now let’s go to the most recent event.

Same gang.  Same number of people.  But in this case, the gang members had already broken in when the homeowner returned around 8:30 pm at night.


Having just dealt with a similarly bad situation involving this gang, the homeowner was carrying his concealed pistol with him.  This time it was , and .  One of them had an assault rifle on his person when the homeowner returned.  According to the news report, the homeowner raised his .45 caliber Springfield pistol and told Simms and Wilson to stop.  Simms raised the rifle and the homeowner fatally shot him and shot Wilson once in the face.

Wilson survived the shooting but his partner did not.  Wilson was charged with second-degree murder in connection with his accomplice’s death; Florida reserving the right to charge a criminal for a violent crime caused through the commission of another violent crime.

The homeowner allegedly did not report the first incident — the one involving Lowe — for fear of gang reprisals.  After the second incident, the homeowner felt confident in identifying Lowe and his accomplice to authorities where they were promptly arrested.

So, homeowner – 4, Zoe Family Mafia – 0.

    Nice work…good shooting…take all the thugs out….my guess is the next break in will be Shawn King…and his accomplice

    why are you using the term “assault rifle”? It is a nebulous term at best. Please don’t feed the anti’s

      Can’t exactly call it a defense rifle or modern sporting rifle when it’s being used in an act of aggression, though…

      You’re thinking of “Assault weapon” – a term invented by gun-grabbers that literally has no meaning.

      “Assault Rifles” are very real – they are intermediate carbines that a capable of select-fire, as in Fully-Automatic fire or burst fire.

      I highly, HIGHLY doubt that is what this wanna-be gangster was carrying. Most likely it was just a semi-automatic AR or AK variant, and the person reporting (I’m looking at you Mr. England!) doesn’t know the difference.

    He knew about the trap? There is more to this story – they clearly left it out. (?)

      Having lived in and around section 8 housing for a number of years, its not generally hard to see it coming.

      Most of the people who get attacked were completely oblivious – having their face buried in their smartphone, fishing in the bottom of their purse for the keys that should already have been in their hand, etc..

      Some see it coming, but fail to act. They just freeze up and stare at the guy, right up until one of the attackers clocks them.

      If you are remotely aware of your surroundings – if you walk with your head up, and look people in the eye as they approach you, you will avoid all but the most vehemently determined attackers.

    “Assault rifle” – meaning the delusional gangsters came into possession of a FULLY-AUTOMATIC rifle? I don’t think so. Why don’t we call it what it is – a semi-automatic rifle.
