A suspected robber is dead after breaking in to a Boone County home early Monday morning.
Three men broke into 92-year-old Earl Jones' home in the 15000 block of Violet Road in Verona at about 2:40 a.m. and Jones shot one of the men as he was coming up the stairs of his basement, according to Boone County spokesperson, Tom Scheben. Jones used his .22 caliber rifle to shoot the alleged robber in the chest.
The injured robber, whose name has not yet been released, fled the scene with the two other men allegedly involved in the robbery. The two men took their injured friend to 2001 Chevrolet Impala on Courtney Road and called police. The pair fabricated a story about the man's injury to try and get him medical attention, Scheben said.
The man died from his injuries. Scheben said the suspect is 24 years old, but they have not yet released his identity.
Police identified the other men as 22-year-old Ryan Dalton and 20-year-old Donnie Inabnit-- both of Dry Ridge. Both are charged with second degree burglary and tampering with physical evidence.
Jones is not facing charges for the shooting. Jones told officials that Monday morning's incident was the third time his home has been robbed.
So in the next presidential election will Earl Jones's vote for the candidate trying to strip him of his medicare or President Obama?
Will the burglars vote for the candidate who hates poor people or Barack Obama?
Will the dead person vote for...... uhhhhhh....... Actually we already know who he'll be voting for.
