Botched Dublin home invasion leaves one dead, another injured

Police are asking the public to stay away from the area while the investigation continues

A woman was killed and a man was injured during an attempted home invasion robbery in Dublin last night, according to the Dublin Police Department.

Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dublin police responded to a reported shooting at a home in the 3400 block of Monaghan Street. Officers found a man and woman, both 28, suffering from gunshot wounds when they arrived. Despite life-saving attempts, medical personnel were unable to save the woman, who died at the scene.

Police contacted the resident of the home where the shooting happened, who was asleep when the incident started. The resident was in bed when he was “awakened by banging on his front door” and “grabbed a gun and went to see what the commotion was about,” according to Dublin police captain Nate Schmidt. The man then opened his door and "saw a man pointing a gun at him, and a woman who he recognized as his ex-girlfriend.”

The pair tried to assault the resident, who “fired his own gun at the suspects as he fled out of the residence and called police.” It is believed that the male suspect fired at the resident but missed him, Schmidt said. The male suspect was transported to a hospital and treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

The names of the woman who died and the surviving suspect have not been released. An investigation by Dublin police is underway; the public is being asked to stay away from the area until the investigation is completed.

It seems to me if it was a possible home robbery there wouldn't be pounding at the front door.... too many red flags that something else is going on here.

The article says:

1. "The man then opened his door and "saw a man pointing a gun at him, and a woman who he recognized as his ex-girlfriend.”
2. The pair tried to assault the resident, who “fired his own gun at the suspects as he fled out of the residence and called police.”

then 3. "It is believed that the male suspect fired at the resident but missed him, Schmidt said."

How was the deceased involved? Where was she? Have they identified the ex-GF?

This is either a poorly worded/reported article or the police have deliberately (for investigatory reasons) not given out pertinent information so as to find out more info.

Gina?

Wow - If you can't figure out that Nick was listing their names (Navarro and White - the names have been released) you're not very bright. Do you think Navarro is a race?

Jennifer if you cant figure it out maybe you should attend more or your high school classes and get an education. Race always matters have you not been paying attention. "if i had a son" You do realize you live in california where race is always a factor. Look up sarcasm and you might then actually understand. LOL
