Killed – Man (East Point, GA)

male

An East Point homeowner said he was protecting his home and family when he shot and killed an intruder Tuesday morning, police said.

About 9:30 a.m. the homeowner heard “a commotion, retrieved a firearm and went to investigate,” said Lt. Cliff Chandler, spokesman for East Point police. The shooting happened in the 3600 block of Mount Vernon Drive.

The suspected would-be burglar was armed with a shovel and had broken through a patio door in an attempt to enter the home, Chandler said. As the prowler entered the dwelling, the homeowner fired one shot, striking the intruder, police said.

The homeowner told Channel 2 Action News that he was in the basement when he heard someone breaking in upstairs. He said the intruder approached him with the shovel and “I had to do what I had to do to protect my house and my family.”

“The perpetrator fled and collapsed in the front yard,” Chandler said.

Double Shooting – Killed – Achievia Upshaw (Columbus, GA)

Achievia Upshaw1

Shots fired during a possible attempted burglary at a Veterans Parkway shopping center Tuesday has left one woman dead, one in critical condition and investigators searching for a third suspect, Columbus police said.

Police said Achievia Upshaw, 21, and Deaisa Ransom, 24, were shot at the Courtesy Shuttle at 5870 Veterans Parkway, just before the West Britt David Road intersection during a burglary attempt.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan said Upshaw was fatally shot in her lower back. She was pronounced dead at 8:21 a.m. at Midtown Medical Center, almost two hours after the 6:30 a.m. shooting. An autopsy on Upshaw’s body is scheduled for Thursday in Atlanta.

Ransom was in critical condition at the hospital. Police said she fled on foot from the scene toward the back-end of the nearby Brittwood Apartments.

Both women were shot near the business’ front door. A Courtesy Shuttle van, parked immediately facing the door, was towed away from the scene with a small bullet hole in its front windshield.

Police Lt. John McMichael said the shooter, a part-owner of the business with his fiancee, was inside sleeping when he “heard the crash of the glass breaking” and confronted the pair.

Someone threw a large object through the front door of the building. Police responded around 6:30 a.m. after the fiancée called 911, police said.

“(The women) were attempting a burglary of the business,” said Maj. Gene Hillhouse.

A black SUV was also involved, McMichael said; it was towed away from the scene along with the van.

Upshaw was fatally shot by business owner Kenneth Hayes while she allegedly attempted to burgle the business, reportedly accompanied by Xavius Donnell Table, 21, and Deaisa Ransom, 24.

During a Monday Recorder’s Court hearing, Sgt. Joseph Hart said Hayes told police he heard the sound of glass breaking during the burglary, and grabbed his Smith & Wesson hand gun to investigate. The part-owner saw one suspect in the store, but was unable to give a clear description of the suspect.

Double Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ricky Junior Toney (Louisburg, NC)

Ricky Junior Toney3

A preliminary autopsy report suggests that Ricky Junior Toney, one of the suspects in a Dec. 31 double homicide in Franklin County, died of a self-inflicted wound, according to Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.

Toney, 34, and his brother, Joey Lamont Kearney, 16, both of Franklin County, led law enforcement officers on a manhunt that covered areas of Franklin and Vance counties before ending in southwestern Warren County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on West River Road in Franklinton at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 31 to the scene of what was believed to be a domestic dispute. According to the sheriff office’s report, there was no answer at the door when deputies arrived. Deputies were able to enter the residence through an unsecured door and found broken glass on the bedroom floor, blood pooling at the base of the bathroom door, and a mirror in the bathroom that appeared to have been shattered by a gunshot.

According to the report, the bodies of a woman and her teenage daughter were found in the bathroom. They later were identified as Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, Ricky Junior Toney’s estranged wife, and Brianna Nicole Jones, 16.

Deputies say the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies say they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.
