Police say a Clovis man knew the three armed men who allegedly forced their way into his home Saturday night and assaulted him before he shot one of them.
The victim, his wife and children were inside their home in the 1200 block of Scott Avenue around 10:30 p.m. when police say Prince Ash, 31, Eugene Spagner, 29, and Antoinne Simpson, 28, entered and began assaulting the man. He suffered a head injury but managed to shoot Simpson before the two others left in a vehicle.
Clovis police stopped the vehicle as it was leaving the area and Spagner and Ash were arrested. They found Simpson with a gunshot wound at the home, and he was taken to the hospital along with the victim.
When Simpson is booked, all three will be charged on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, home invasion robbery, conspiracy and felony child endangerment, police said.
