    AUGUSTA, Ga. — 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 around 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 — a weapon similar to an AK47 assault 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.

    Royal lived with his parents near the home that was burglarized, police said. A search of his home turned up two guns taken from Bollinger’s house and marijuana, Johnson said.

    Police had no immediate plans to charge Bollinger in the shooting.

    the captain was most certainly in a gang. thats the only explanation for owning such a violent and dangerous weapon.

    SSK's need to be off the streets.

    He probably brought it back illegally from afganistan, that's the only explanation for him to own such a scary piece of machinery.

    Yeah, we need to take these rifles off the streets, these SSKs are turning our cities into warzones. I honestly would be afraid to shoot one, because only the most hardened of criminals would use such a sadistic weapon.

    Why would an Army captain use a weapon that is only meant for drive-by shootings and spraying massive amounts of ammo?
