Homeowner Shoots Intruder

An overnight burglary attempt in Longview ends with one of the alleged intruders shot to death by the homeowner.   Police say three other juvenile suspects, who broke into the property, are in custody.  

Sheriffs deputies say the burglary happened in north Longview shortly after 2:00 a.m. The home is located in the 200 block of West Pliler Precise Rd.  

Investigators say burglars were confronted by the 65-year-old homeowner when they entered the residence.  The owner fired several shots, and the suspects fled the property.

Bradley Parrish, 19,  of Longview was shot, and found dead a short time later.  Parrish had apparently collapsed while crossing the road about 200 yards away from the home. Deputies caught the other three juveniles, two boys and a girl, within minutes of arriving at the scene.

The news of the shooting has shocked and unnerved neighbors, who had no idea what had happened. "It's definitely unnerving, but my feelings on it are you don't need to be there if it's not your home," said Deanna McAdams.

The juveniles have been charged with burglary of a habitat.  They are in juvenile detention. An autopsy has been ordered in the case. The evidence has been handed over to the District Attorney's office, to go before a grand jury.
