Criminal Out On Bail Tries Home Invasion, Loses to Homeowner with a Shotgun (Nebraska)

Out on bail for multiple felony counts of domestic abuse, 21-year-old Tyrell Dalia of Omaha tried his hand at home invasion... and lost.

Armed with a handgun, Dalia tried to force his way into a Bellevue, Nebraska apartment and ended up shot and killed by a resident armed with a shotgun.

According to WOWT,

Sean Sammons told WOWT 6 News that several of his friends were in the home when Dalia broke in. None of his friends were injured during the incident. "Makes me happy to know that none of them are injured or possibly dead. It's the first time I've heard of something like this at all."

Police said the homeowner used his own gun to defend himself. Investigators took a shot gun out of the home as part of their investigation.

Sammons said he's not surprised his friends were able to defend themselves. He said they started keeping a shotgun by the door after a previous break in. "I don't think they're going to be living here much longer. I think they'll be moving to a different place."

It sounds like good planning and quick reactions saved these people from being robbed or even murdered by Dalia. Do you stage firearms near your doors? If you have children, do you use a safe?
