Georgia Self-Defense: Man killed after breaking into Gwinnett home :: 01/09/2018

A man was shot and killed after he and two other men broke into a home and exchanged gunfire with the homeowner, Gwinnett County police said.

  • The intruder was found dead in a neighbor’s yard.
  • The homeowner was shot in the leg, police said.

Officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Cainbridge Drive near Lawrenceville just before 3 a.m. Monday.

They learned the homeowner, identified as 25-year-old Antonio Rosales, was sleeping when he heard a crash through the back door and grabbed a gun. 

As Rosales investigated, he saw three men in his home, Cpl. Frederick Saldana said.

The men exchanged fire with Rosales, who was shot in the leg twice, according to officials.

The intruders ran from the home, and two of them got away in a vehicle. One of them was later found dead in a neighbor’s yard, Saldana said. The victim’s name has not been released.

Rosales was rushed to the hospital.

His condition is unknown. It’s also unclear if the other intruders were injured.

Police obtained a warrant to search the home, Saldana said.

“Homicide investigators are working with the crime scene unit to collect evidence outside and inside of the residence,” Saldana said.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Gwinnett police detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477). Tipsters can receive up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.
