Two armed thugs attempted a home invasion by pulling a fake food delivery scam but their plan didn’t quite go as they’d hoped.
They made a fatal mistake when they failed to consider that the Georgia homeowner could also be armed.
Thankfully, the homeowner knew his Second Amendment rights and was ready and willing to exercise them.
The crooks were pretending to be Door Dash delivery men dropping off Taco Bell food.
But when they tried to burst into the home, one of the residents pulled out a gun and killed one of the suspects.
Police found 18-year-old Grayson Rhue of Roswell, Georgia, dead from multiple wounds when they arrived on April 6.
Rhus was lying in the driveway outside of a home in Noblesville, Georgia.
Court documents said that Rhue and an accomplice allegedly purchased “quesaritos” along with two Baja Blast freeze drinks at Taco Bell.
They then dressed up as Door Dash delivery drivers and rang the bell at a nearby home.
When one of the occupants opened the front door, they forced their way inside.
“Go inside, don’t make any noise,” Rhue said to the person who answered the door.
The two allegedly pointed a gun at the three occupants who were house-sitting at the home.
But the homeowner had other ideas and pulled out his own gun, shooting at the two suspects.
Rhue ran out the front door and died about two houses away from the incident.
Police said they found a stolen handgun beneath the DoorDash bag that Rhue dropped on the way out.
They later arrested a suspect they believe to be his accomplice and identified as 22-year-old Ruai Ngundeng Pal in his hometown of Franklin, Tennessee.
Police said that Pal was also wanted on other charges.
He will be charged with murder, as well as armed robbery and burglary with a deadly weapon.
Court documents said that police were able to trace Pal through hotel footage to be at the same hotel as Rhue.
They were also able to find evidence in the form of a conversation that Rhue had on Snapchat.
“Yeah we robbed his trap,” he allegedly wrote.
“I’ll be back tommorw I’m robbin his house tonight then driving straight back.”
