(Colton Lochhead of Las Vegas Review-Journal) – A 23-year-old man was able to fend off two intruders in his family’s homeTuesday morning, killing one and wounding the other, according to a police report released Wednesday.
Just after 9 a.m. Tuesday, Tarneshia Harris, 29, also known as Tiffany Carter, and a male accomplice broke into a house in the 3800 block of King Palm Avenue, near Pecos and Alexander roads, while several people were home, according to the report.
The duo initially tried a ruse to gain entry, police said.
Harris knocked on the door of the house and told the 12-year-old boy who answered that her car had broken down and asked to use the phone. The boy agreed, but then started to close the door. Harris pushed through and put him in a headlock, according to the report.
At that point, the male intruder, armed with a stolen .22-caliber pistol, came in the front door. He pointed his handgun at the boy and told him to be quiet, the report said.
