ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The victim of an attempted Moultrie home invasion turned the tables and fired on the invaders before they could break into his home.
Two of three men were show and now all three are charged with attempted armed robbery. Police were called to the Pineland Apartments Saturday. Ivan Hightower told police he was getting into the shower when he heard a noise. He grabbed his gun because he had been robbed before and looked out the window to find three men in dark colored hoodies with guns. Hightower then opened fire on the would-be robbers. The District Attorney is now looking at the case to see if Hightower will be charged.
"The D.A. has not made his decision on that yet. In the state of Georgia you do have the right to protect yourself if you feel that you are in danger and you have the right to protect somebody else if you feel like their life is in danger also," said Lt. Alfonzo Cook, Moultrie Police.
Twenty-one year old Darnell Slaughter was treated for a gun shot wound, released from the hospital and arrested. Calvin Suggs, not pictured, remains hospitalized and faces pending charges after he's released. Eighteen year old Apondrea Marshall was also charged in the crime.
