A mother and her son were alone in their home when a 25-year-old man kicked in their door, and was subsequently shot dead.
Investigators said Robby Blount broke into the Marshville, NC home around 1 a.m. Thursday, wearing a mask and waving a gun. Although it’s unclear who shot the intruder, one occupant dialed 911 as the other fired a fatal shot from a shotgun.
Blount was hit once in the chest and tried to flee, but collapsed in the front yard, dead. Law enforcement will consult with prosecutors to see if any charges should be filed against mother and son.
