Steel will bring about peace and that is exactly what a 12-year-old
did after shooting and killing an armed robber who shot Linda
Ellis, a 73-year-old woman, at an apartment located in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
Linda Ellis was taken to the local hospital and is expected to survive.
The dead robber is a 19-year-old who was known in this life as Khalil Herring. And now he’s known in the next life as the young fool whose way of making a living has officially made him a part of the non-living.
As for Khalil Herring’s partner in crime, the police are still on the lookout for him or her. The fact that he or she hasn’t turned him or herself in is evidence that he or she hasn’t acknowledge the error in his or her ways which will more than likely lead to him or her ending up like his or her buddy who is standing at hell’s door.
Due to the fact that the little fella or gal was using steel to bring about peace, the Goldsboro Police Department
will not be asking the district attorney to charge the young fella or gal in the case. “A 12-year-old juvenile occupant of the residence shot at the suspects with a firearm in self-defense, causing them to flee the area,” is what the WRAL folks
quoted officials as saying in their written statement.
Chiquita Coley Ellis says she doesn’t know why someone would shoot her great-aunt. “Why would somebody come into her house and do this? It’s got to stop. I don’t know what they’re thinking around here in Goldsboro, but it’s got to stop,” is what the WRAL folks
quoted Chiquita Coley Ellis as saying about the crime there.
Thankfully, the 12-year-old had the presence of mind to grab a gun and put an end to what could have been a tragic situation for him or her and Ms. Linda Ellis.
