Aren’t gun laws funny? The bad guys who were being monitored by GPS, break into a felon’s home. The felon shoots them, and he gets arrested. How is a man supposed to defend his home? Where would he be if he had not had a gun? Unconstitutional gun laws need to go. If a man is not dangerous enough to be in jail, his constitutional rights should be restored.
Man who shot intruders charged with gun possession by a felon
A Fayetteville man who police said shot two intruders inside his home Friday was later charged after investigators said he wasn’t allowed to have the handgun.
Fayetteville police said Harold Williams, 42, grabbed a firearm after Roy Lee Hawk, 27, and Martize Douglas, 23, forced their way into Williams’ home in the 500 block of Mayview Street about 5:15p.m. Mayview Street is between Southern Avenue and Camden Road in the Massey Hill community.
Hawk was found injured at the scene, police said. He was in critical condition Saturday at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
Douglas fled from the residence, according to police, but went to the hospital two hours after the shooting. On Saturday, he was listed in serious condition.
Williams was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. He was not in Cumberland County Detention Center on Saturday.
Hawk and Douglas were charged with common law robbery, breaking and entering, and conspiracy.
Police said the two were being monitored by a global positioning system through the N.C. Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission.
Their addresses were not immediately available.
The home invasion did not appear to be random, the Police Department said in a news release, but no further details were available.
Hawk and Douglas will be taken to Cumberland County jail when they are released from the hospital.
