At around 2 a.m. on Wednesday, four men, Gregory Elliot, Willie Collins, Timothy Ogburn, and Lawrence Gillen, approached the 30 year old man and a 29 year old woman who were sitting inside of a car outside of the house. A confrontation ensued resulting in the man being struck on the head several times with a handgun and the woman fleeing into the house and locking herself in a bedroom.
Gillen and Ogburn followed her inside and attempted to break down the bedroom door. Gillen was carrying a rifle and kicked the door several times waking up a man in the bedroom next door. He opened the door, saw Gillen with the rifle, slammed the door shut, and called 911. Gillen started kicking the man’s door until it came off its hinges, at which time, the man fought with the man over the gun. During the struggle two rounds were discharged, but the man was able to wrestle the gun away from Gillen.
Gillen and Ogburn ran. Elliot and Collins, who were guarding the 30 year old man outside, heard the shots fired inside of the house and ran. All four men entered a getaway vehicle and fled from the scene.
The getaway vehicle was followed by the 30-year-old and another man who had come by the residence. As the two men followed the suspect vehicle, they kept police apprised of their location. As the men were following the getaway vehicle on Ft Campbell Blvd, Gillen and Ogburn who were in the rear passenger seats, fired rounds in the air and at the pursuing vehicle. The men eventually lost track of the getaway vehicle.
At around 2:15 a.m., an officer located the vehicle, and with the assistance of other patrol officers, stopped the vehicle in the area of Tiny Town and Needmore Rd. The suspects were taken to the detective division to be interviewed.
As detectives pursued the investigation, they also found a link to two robberies which occurred on September 3 between midnight and 1 a.m., where two men had robbed two women in the area of Mr C. Drive and two men in the area of 1471 Tiny Town Rd. Detectives determined Lawrence Gillen, who had been involved in the home invasion, and another man Devain Peterson were responsible for both robberies.
