Good shooting and good riddance to bad rubbish.

Not a national news story because the dead guy is the wrong race

True, but still it's always nice seeing the right people being shot. As far as I'm concerned this is just a good case of why people should have guns. The guy was in jail for a reason got out then went to cause some more problems for people that don't need them. So in this case it turned out good bad guys dead people werent seriously hurt it's good all around.

Story says the homeowners planned to kill the escaped fugitive should he end up at their home. An astonishing admission.

If this were Chicago, LA, Boston, Detroit, or most anywhere else, this premeditated admission of what most prosecutors would call an execution style killing, would be trading one guy that used to be in jail, for two people in jail.

I am glad this ended with the two elderly homeowners safe, and the Iowa community's safe, however, not a rocket science thing to do, telling the media, you planned to kill someone, after you just killed them.

I hope this couple manage to stay out of trouble for such an admission.

That bit about planning to kill caught my attention, too. I re-read it and it seems to me that it was one of the neighbors that made that statement, and not the folks with the shotgun. Anyway, it was unclear at first (and maybe now, too).

Default Homeowner shoots, kills escaped prisoner in Iowa

Homeowner shoots, kills escaped prisoner in Iowa

Published August 21, 2013
Associated Press


FILE: Authorities say an Iowa couple were asleep in their bedroom Monday night when escaped convicted felon Rodney Long, 38, broke into their rural home west of Bedford. (Iowa Department of Public Safety)



BEDFORD, Iowa – Authorities say an escaped inmate suspected of shooting a southwest Iowa sheriff's deputy has been killed by a homeowner who said the armed man broke into his house.

Rodney Long was shot to death after he broke into a retired farm couple's home in Bedford about 10:15 p.m. Monday, awakening them. Long, who was armed with a handgun, cut their telephone lines and used their cell phone, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mitch Mortvedt said.

After about four hours, Jerome Mauderly, 71, shot Long with a shotgun in the kitchen of the home he shares with his wife, Carolyn, 66.

"As the situation wore on the decision was made by the Mauderlys they were going to defend themselves," Mortvedt said. "At 2:11 a.m. the Taylor County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from Carolyn Mauderly."

She told a dispatcher that her husband had shot an intruder.

An Iowa State Patrol officer was nearby and quickly responded, finding Long face down on the kitchen floor, Mortvedt said. No one else was injured.

Iowa officers, with help from Missouri officers and a Nebraska State Patrol aircraft, had been searching for Long since Sunday night, scouring about 16 square miles, after a southern Iowa sheriff's deputy was shot, Mortvedt said. They had searched the Mauderlys' property three times. The home is about 5 miles west of Bedford.

Long was serving a prison sentence for burglary and was scheduled for release in September 2014. He climbed a fence and escaped from the prison in Clarinda on Friday morning.

On Sunday, Long shot and wounded Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy Dan Wyckoff near New Market, about 10 miles northwest of Bedford, Mortvedt said. Clarinda, where Long was imprisoned, is eight miles west of New Market.

Wyckoff had been dispatched to check on someone walking along Iowa Highway 2. The Iowa Public Safety Department said the deputy was shot in the chest and arm as he got out of his vehicle to talk to the man. Wyckoff sought cover nearby and the gunman jumped into the deputy's vehicle and took off.

Another deputy soon arrived, the department said. He picked up Wyckoff and the two chased the stolen patrol vehicle. The chase wound through rural Taylor County for about 40 minutes, punctuated by exchanges of gunshots. Other officers joined the chase, and the stolen vehicle eventually went out of control and rolled several times. The suspect fled on foot.

Personal items left in the wrecked vehicle led officers to conclude that Long was the man who shot Wyckoff, the department said.

Wyckoff, 33, was flown to a hospital in Omaha, Neb. Mortvedt said he was still in stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery.
