    Police: Burglar killed by veteran
    AUGUSTA — A man authorities say had broken into an Army officer’s home to steal guns was shot to death by the Iraq war veteran, who had come home early.
    Capt. Barre Bollinger told police he returned from work about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and found his house had been ransacked, Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Thomas Johnson said.
    Bollinger, who is stationed at Fort Gordon, entered his bedroom and noticed that guns were missing.
    He grabbed his SKS rifle and called 911, Johnson said.
    ‘‘While on the phone with 911, he sees the suspect approaching his back door,’’ Johnson said. ‘‘Because he believes the man now is armed with his stolen weapons, Mr. Bollinger fires at him three times.’’
    Errol Lavar Royal, 29, was shot at least twice in the stomach area. He was later pronounced dead at Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

    This is a repeat. On of the forum members here met the guy two hours after the fact when he as buying a replacement weapon (since the police seized all of his weapons as "evidence" :roll: )
