Another home invasion, another shooting

(Second shooting prompts a warning)….Another suspected home invader was shot Friday in Yuma.

This time, the victim was wounded, but alive. Just 3 weeks ago a resident shot and killed 19-year-old Michael Sykora after the 19 year old was confronted by the homeowner. Sykora had allegedly entered the home illegally. Friday the homeowner confronted the suspect after he had entered the yard of the residence. Yuma police are warning residence to call police first when a home invader is discovered. They say shooting should be the last resort, and only if a life is threatened. The Sykora shooting and the latest incident are both being investigated.
