On March 9, 2014 at approximately 22 :29 hours a home invasion robbery took place at 3306 SE 26th St., at the time of the home invasion robbery the residence was occupied by 5 people.
According to accounts of the incident from the occupants of the residence there was a knock on the door. When the door opened three males entered the residence. Two of the males that entered the residence were armed one with a Shotgun and the other with an ARl5 style weapon-
The occupants were order to lay face down on the ground by the gunmen and to remove all their personal belongings from their pockets. Several of the occupants were able to identify one of the gunmen as Timothy Deshon Williams.
The witnesses who identified Timothy have all personally known him from 8 to 14 years. According to witnesses accounts Timothy was carrying the AR 15 Style weapon. Shortly after entering the residence and ordering the occupants to lay face down Timothy shot Leon Anthony Cotton in the right: leg with the ARl5 because he would not get on the ground as instructed.
As a result of the gunshot Leon suffered a broken right femur and has required surgeries to treat and repair his leg.
He’s fortunate to get away with a broken femur. I don’t answer the door without a firearm, especially in the unlikely event that someone knocks after dark. These folks should have been armed.
Isn’t it ironic though. In Connecticut and New York, the bullies in charge would want us to be left comparatively defenseless in the face of such home invasions. So if the criminals can use them, then why not me?
