The criminal career of a California home invader came to a sudden and permanent end after he found himself on the business end of a shotgun courtesy of the man living in the home he mistakenly targeted.
According to the Merced Sun Star, the incident occurred when 33-year-old Moana John LogoLogo kicked in the door of an apartment in the city of Merced at around 10 p.m. last Wednesday. The resident managed to grab his shotgun and told LogoLogo to leave, but LogoLogo continued moving toward him. That’s when the homeowner opened fire in self defense.
LogoLogo was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He had a rap sheet that includes multiple arrests for spousal abuse, as well as arrests for drug possession and making threats.
There is no known connection between the armed resident, who hasn’t been identified, and LogoLogo.
“He said he didn’t know who this individual was. He was fearful and has been very cooperative with individuals involved in this case,” said Lt. Don King of the Merced Police Department told ABC30.
In a separate Sun-Star article, Detective-Sgt. Curt Gorman said it appeared that LogoLogo had been drinking and was actually looking for somebody who lived in an apartment nearby, but in his inebriated state, he wound up breaking into the wrong apartment. Police are still trying to ascertain LogoLogo’s motive.
“We know who he was looking for now, but we don’t know why,” Gorman said. “It doesn’t appear he was trying to commit a burglary, but, whatever it was, he got the wrong home.”
