Cobb Homeowner Shoots, Kills One of Two Intruders

The deceased male has been identified as 30-year-old Michael Verucci of Marietta.

Cobb police say a homeowner shot and killed one of two intruders who barged into his home late Tuesday night in Marietta.

According to Officer Mike Bowman, the shooting took place around 11 p.m. in a home located in the 1800 block of Dorsey Road near Canton Road.

The homeowner told investigators that he shot the first man, and watched as the second suspect left the area in a vehicle. The deceased male has been identified as 30-year-old Michael Verucci of Marietta.

At this time, investigators do not expect to file any charges in this case and ask that anyone with information about this incident call the Cobb County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit at 770-499-3945.

This was not a home invasion. It is questionable use of that law. This was a domestic disturbance that ended in death. Way to phone it in Cobb County. I am shocked this was released to the news wires as a home invasion. Shame on you.

Good. One less criminal on the street.

If someone "barged into my home" whether it was a stranger or family member who intended harm - that's a "home invasion."
