    A group of four armed intruders broke into an Indiana home recently, but only two left alive, state police told news outlets.
    It happened early Sunday, May 15, at a home in DeKalb County, officials told WXIN.
    The suspects forced their way inside but were soon confronted by the homeowner, who was also armed, the TV station reported.
    The resident fired at the burglars, killing two of them, police told WTHR. The homeowner held the remaining two at gunpoint until officers arrived and arrested them.
    No charges have been brought against the homeowner, WPTA reported.
    The surviving suspects were taken into custody on charges of burglary and murder, according to the outlet. Murder charges can be brought against the suspects because they reportedly were committing a felony that led to two deaths, the station said.

    The incident is under investigation by Indiana State Police.

    Four walk in, two walk out
    July 1st, expect some dynamic changes in the crime rate.

    Did the home owner give the burglars a warning first? Did he give them time to leave the house? He's guilty, hang him high.
    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.

    It is a complete waste of time to negotiate what is to be stolen by thieves.

    They come into your house, at night, unknown, uninvited, they aren't there for anything good.

    If you don't kill them, they'll probably kill you.

    Yeah, in a lot of cases like this the homeowner/shooter is the one who gets into trouble. Fortunately, Indiana is a very conservative state, and the police involved sounds like they had a lot of common sense. Usually when you shoot someone, you go to jail automatically, no matter what the circumstances, from what I hear. Doesn't sound like that's the case here.

    This line from the article was particularly interesting:
    "Murder charges can be brought against the suspects because they reportedly were committing a felony that led to two deaths".

    Yes, while committing a crime, if one of the perpetrators is killed, the rest of said perpetrators can be charged with murder.

    The law is specific. You cannot shoot a person outside of your house unless he is threatening with deadly force. You had better be able to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt.
    You cannot shoot them in the back. That would indicate they were fleeing and no longer posed a threat.
    Do not wound them.
    ....and drag them back through the window.
