Knife AttackNo Charges for Homeowner After Shooting & Killing Suspected Bob IrwinBob Irwin

USA –-( WSAZ-TV 3 & WOWK-TV 13 report 10-15-2013 in Bob White, West Virginia, a man and his wife were alerted by neighbors in the community that someone was in their backyard around 10 p.m. Friday night.

When they went outside to check, the home owners encountered 40 year old male from Wharton, West Virginia after he came out from behind the owner’s outbuilding.

He was carrying a knife. The homeowner shot the intruder once. He was declared dead by Emergency Service Personnel at the scene.

Sheriff Randall White of The Boone County Sheriff’s Department said, “There will be no charges filed against the homeowner at this time. He was armed with a handgun on his property and was confronted by an armed individual committing a felony. Our investigation is continuing and we are working closely with the Prosecutor. ”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with both families involved in this incident”.


Short and simple. A neighbor alert about an intruder on the property. A reasonable decision to search before calling 911 as the resident did not see the reported intrusion himself.

It’s completely reasonable to bring a firearm in case the neighbor is right about a trespasser on your property.

Suddenly the resident is confronted by a person with deadly weapon. A reasonable series of decisions including his use of deadly force.
