A father and son from Mississippi were arrested after they allegedly broke into a Slidell home and severely beat one of the men inside. Amos Trehern, 45, and Kody Trehern, 20, were arrested by the Long Beach Police Department in Mississippi Friday night. According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, the two men broke into a home on Bishop Drive on the night of Oct. 2. Police say they pulled a knife on the homeowner and forced him to lead them to another man, who was in a shed in the back yard.Amos and Kody Trehern then allegedly beat the second victim with a metal pipe, striking him multiple times in the head and body before getting back in their car and driving away.
A homeowner shot two men who the Tucson Police Department said attempted to break into the home early Wednesday.
The incident happened around 3:45 a.m. on Oct. 16, when officers responded to a 911 call reporting gunshots at a home near East Duncan and North Swan Road in midtown Tucson.
According to Tucson police spokesman Officer Frank Magos, two adult males were found with obvious gunshot trauma behind the home.
Magos said one of the men was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other was taken to Banner University Medical Center in Tucson with life-threatening injuries, where he later died. The identities of the two men have not been released by police.
Upon further investigation, detectives learned the homeowner was asleep inside the home when she was woken up from noise coming from the back of the residence, Magos said. She then went to investigate and found two men trying to force their way into her home.
"She confronted them, she armed herself with a firearm and shots were fired and that info was relayed to us by 911," Magos said.
Detectives are executing a search warrant on the home, according to Magos, and the investigation is ongoing.
