A feel good story for the homeowner, no cleanup required.
A 17-year-old boy was burglarizing a house in Prairie Township when the homeowner shot and killed him early on Saturday, Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said this afternoon.
Reb Barbee was armed with a knife and wearing an Insane Clown Posse mask when he was shot in the living room of 8798 Hubard Dr. S, investigators said.
The homeowner, Heather Tackett, didn’t call 911, Scott said. She told investigators she didn’t realize she’d hit someone.
Tackett and Barbee knew each other from the neighborhood, Scott said.
Barbee, shot in the shoulder, and three other youths ran about a half-mile to Barbee’s home on Dovalon Place, and waited an hour before calling for help around 6 a.m., investigators said. [...]
Scott said murder charges will be filed against the three this afternoon. Ohio law allows co-conspirators to be charged with murder if someone dies while committing a first-or second-degree felony such as robbery or burglary.
