Business owner fatally shoots intruder
This story appeared in the Antelope Valley Press on Wednesday, August 20, 2003.
By NICOLE JACOB
Valley Press Staff Writer



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LANCASTER - An intruder at a Lancaster business became the Valley's 26th homicide victim this year.
The intruder's life came to a violent end early Tuesday morning when a Lancaster business owner shot and killed him after the intruder allegedly broke into the owner's comic book shop and was about to attack the owner.

The intruder, whose identity has not been released, allegedly forced open a back door of the Bases Cards and Comics about 3 a.m., only to find the shop owner sleeping in the back room.

The owner told investigators he was sleeping in a back room because of other recent burglaries at the business, sheriff's Sgt. Shaun McCarthy said.

"He heard the door being pried open so he went into the showroom and saw the (intruder)," McCarthy said. "He said the (intruder) attempted to strike him with the tool that he was holding, which was a tire iron."

Sheriff's officials did not release the shop owner's identity, but a search of past Valley Press articles and sources indicate the store owner is Rob Stephens.

Stephens, armed with a handgun, fired at the intruder, striking him once in the upper body, sheriff's officials said. The intruder was dead at the scene.

Stephens was questioned, but not arrested. Homicide detectives believe the case is justifiable homicide, but the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office will make a final decision.

"Based on where our investigation is at this point, it's as clear cut a case of justifiable homicide as I've ever handled," McCarthy said. "Everything appears to be consistent with what we're being told."

The shop was open for business Tuesday afternoon, but Stephens could not be reached for comment.

Excellent

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I saw someone get clocked in the head with one once. Fucked that guy up. He was lucky it was only one blow and got away with just stitches.
