Daughter shoots and kills home intruder in Jones County

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A home invasion Wednesday morning in northeast Jones County ended when the intruder was shot and killed by the homeowner's daughter.

Don Juan Arrington, 26, of the Beaver Meadows community in Jasper County allegedly forced his way into a home on Hales Road about 2 a.m.

Authorities said Arrington physically assaulted the female homeowner and was threatening other occupants of the house when the daughter shot him several times in the chest. Arrington was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident apparently stemmed from an argument earlier in the day. An investigation continues, but so far no charges have been filed.
