Early last Friday, in Durham, North Carolina, a man heard a honking car horn and flashing lights outside of his house at around 4:30 AM. The homeowner grabbed his gun and went to investigate the commotion. The female driver said she needed to use his phone because she had gotten to a fight with a relative. Her accomplice, identified as Jerel Antonio Thompson, came around the corner of the house and exchanged gunfire with the homeowner. The robber was wounded and taken to Duke Regional Hospital.
Thompson was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. The homeowner was uninjured.
