EAST ISLIP, NY (WCBS 880) -  A home invasion on Long Island turned deadly for one of the suspects early Wendesday morning.
Police told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall that a gunman and two other suspects forced their way inside a two-story, yellow-colored home on Adams Street in East Islip around 2 a.m.
Once inside the home, the suspect armed with a .22 caliber rifle shot the family’s pit bull. A man who lives in the home, grabbed a shotgun and returned fire, police said.
One suspect, identified by police as Fred Flock, 27,  of Coram, died on the back porch. Another suspect was wounded and hospitalized, police said. A third suspect, identified as Philipe Robinette, 27, of Aquebogue, fled the scene but was later caught by authorities.
Robinette has been charged with burglary.
Residents expressed shock after the violent early morning incident.
“We never have any problems. Nothing ever happens in this neighborhood,” one person said.
“If you have to protect yourself, you have protect yourself. [If] someone breaks into my house, I would probably do the same thing,” another neighbor said.
The dog is expected to survive. The man and two women who live in the home were not injured.
At least the dog is OK, and there's one less scumbag for people to worry about.

Presumably this is to balance out the shooting of the Alzheimer's victim discussion on here? 


It's also from  April 13, 2011...


Poor show.
