America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15, was used by a man to defend his home from a violent criminal invader.

Here’s the story.

(Philadelphia Enquirer) – An Elkins Park man was killed late Friday after he forced his way into a stranger’s apartment in Cheltenham Township.

Jasper Brisbon, 32, wandered up to a couple late Friday at the Lynnewood Apartments as the pair spoke outside their unit. Brisbon, they told police, appeared to be on drugs. He stared at the pair for several minutes before the couple decided to go into their apartment, police said.

But as they entered their home Brisbon jumped between them, forcing his way in.

The male of the couple ran to get a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle and insisted Brisbon leave. Brisbon refused. Instead, as the man yelled “Stop! Stop Stop!” Brisbon moved menacingly toward the man, police said.

The man fired a shot striking Brisbon in the torso and immediately called 911, police said.

An ambulance rushed Brisbon to Abington Memorial Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. According to court records, Brisbon was awaiting trial on a charge of aggravated assault stemming from an incident in December.

    But he was on drugs…….

    He didn’t know what he was doing. He’s always a nice fellow when he’s off the drugs.

    Why did you have to kill him?

    1. Oh not my baby boy! He was a good boy … he’d never do something like that. Those folks murdered him!!!!

  2. Another winner of the “Darwin” award, survival of the fittest with enough knowledge to be prepared for druggy thugs on the prowl. Hope the ambulance driver took the “scenic route” to the hospital emergency, down by the river? or a cruse by the “Steak & Shake” for a quick snack.
    Those AR style firearms sure are good DEFENSE weapons! Only one shot?, and maybe 29 more just in case the thugs’ accomplaces were nearby!
