UPDATE: Man shot and killed in Boardman home invasion



Published: Tue, October 30, 2012 @ 5:57 p.m.

BOARDMAN — Township police are now going through the home that was the scene of a home invasion that left one person dead this afternoon.

Ofiicers were called to 5011 Lockwood Blvd. about 3:15 p.m. When they arrived a man was found shot in the kitchen.

The homeowner was inside the house, and it appears the deceased man had invaded the home, according to police.

The homeowner initially declined to let police search the home. The homeowner has retained Atty. J. Gerald Ingram. Once that was done, the homeowner allowed authorities to go through the house, and there was no longer a need to wait for a search warrant.

Police said the home invader had a driver waiting outside, who was apprehended running through a wooded area behind the house.

The getaway driver and homeowner were taken into police custody.

Police confirmed that there are weapons in the house.

Police believe the homeowner knew the attackers.

Dr. Joseph Ohr, chief pathologist with the Mahoning County coroner's office, remained inside the house, where he was examining the body.

Police are not releasing the identities of the men at this time.

So someone break's into your home and threatened your life and then you shoot and kill the intruder. Then you get taken into police custody. lol funny stuff there Boardman Police. I wouldn't let you search my home either if that happened at my residents. Best part is there is one less bad guy breathing.

If this happened in my home, and I shot an invader, I would have no problem letting them search my home.

I agree Jan. Also the note that there were weapons in the house. That's obvious. Maybe there were suspicious weapons in the house.

Way more to this story. Should be interesting........

One person was shot and killed this afternoon in Boardman.
Police say a burglar broke through a sliding glass door at a home on Lockwood Boulevard just before 3:30 p.m.

The homeowner was in the kitchen at the time and shots were fired. The burglar was hit by the gunfire and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Mahoning County Coroner.

"The homeowner was home. The entry was gained through a sliding glass door by smashing it out with some object and he came into the house and confronted him in the kitchen," said Capt. Donald Hawkins, Boardman Police Department.

The homeowner, Kevin Neal, did not immediately give police an account of what happened saying that he was waiting for his attorney. He also did not initially grant investigators access to the home, but later let police inside without a warrant. Officers said they found more than one weapon in the house.
Police at the scene said that the burglars and homeowner were acquainted, but the details of that relationship are not known at this time.

This is a developing story. Check back here and tune in to our upcoming newscasts for the latest information.

Look if truly innocent in this area, you have to protect yourself against some of these police departments.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Taken into custody can mean the same thing as arrested. It depends on whether or not you are free to leave.

At ease folks...A couple of questionable facts to this case need to be cleared up before we can pass judgement.

If you shoot and kill someone, you will be taken into custody for questioning. Regardless of it's inside your home or not. It's called an investigation. Under your rules, you could simply murder someone and then not let the police into your home? They will get the warrant anyway and it is a crime scene....for the burglary at least. At the conclusion of the investigation, a prosecuting attorney will likely be the one to decide if you are going home or being charged. That is how the law works and the police acted appropriately.
