MECHANICSVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA - A pair of armed burglars went on a rampage after breaking into a rural home. The pair assaulted two women and pistol whipped an 11-year-old boy.

Their little "game" ended when the homeowner woke from the ruckus and came out shooting. According to Sheriff Wayne Byrd,
"He was at the back of the residence, came out fired several shots at the intruders, and they fled the scene. And upon our officers arriving, they found one of the suspects dead in a field about 75 yards from the house"

Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee identified the suspect who died as 25-year-old Marquis Benjamin.



Byrd said the homeowner isn't expected to be charged because he acted in self-defense:

"It's more a matter of defending yourself, defending your family. Providing for the protection of your own life and your own family's life. And their well-being."
