ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Police say people defending their homes
killed one person and wounded another in Alexandria, and injured a
third in a nearby part of Rapides Parish.
Both incidents occurred early Monday.
Alexandria police say 24-year-old Darwin Johnson of Alexandria
was killed when he and a second man got into the home of a man, his
wife and their two young children.
The second man was injured but was in stable condition.
The Rapides Parish Sheriff's office says a man was in intensive
care after allegedly breaking into a house dressed in black and
wearing a ski mask. Deputies say the resident had reported other
break-ins in the past few weeks.
