    Albuquerque police: Man shoots neighbor's intruder

    Staff reports
    Thursday, June 7, 2007

    A man coming to the aid of his West Side neighbor shot an intruder, even as the intruder beat him with a crowbar, Albuquerque police say.

    Police said Gregory Lawrence Powers, 36, broke into the West Side yard around 10 p.m. May 26.

    After a neighbor arrived with a gun, Powers attacked him with a crowbar, according to a Metro Court criminal complaint. Powers continued beating the Good Samaritan even after being shot three times, the complaint said.

    Powers was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital and treated for gunshot wounds to the chest and groin. He was released into police custody Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

    Powers is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The neighbor was treated and released from UNMH.

    Don't know what the neighbor was using but sounds like he needs to go buy himself something bigger. Not sure if I'd do the same though.. don't like any of my neighbors and I'd risk going to jail shooting an intruder in my own home let alone someone elses.

    The perp may have been on some kind of substance.

    Must not have been a .45, he would have died from the sight of it. ;)
