Student fatally shot during New York home invasion

We all know that New York has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. The blame for this girl’s death lies strictly with the cops – AGAIN.

A student has been shot and killed in the US state of New York after an armed man broke into her home during an apparent attempted robbery.  

The incident happened in Long Island on early Friday when the gunman forced his way into the home that the 21-year-old victim, Andrea Rebello, shared with her twin sister and another young woman.

According to the police, the man who was wearing a mask, knocked on the door of the home and when one of the residents looked to see who was there, he burst in.

Police said that a man was also at the house at the time of the incident. The unidentified suspect held the twin sisters and the young man hostage, but allowed the other woman to leave the house, apparently to withdraw cash from a bank machine.

The woman then called the police and informed them of the hostage taking at her home. The police rushed to the scene.

Shortly after our arrival, a shooting took place where the suspect is killed and one of the female victims are killed,” said Deputy Inspector Kenneth Lack of the Nassau County Police Department.

The police said an investigation has been launched into the details of shooting. However, it appeared that the gunman and the police exchanged gunfire.

We are doing a forensic analysis,” said the Nassau chief of detectives, John R. Capece, adding, We are going to get to the bottom of what happened.”

Following the fatal incident, the victim™s father Fernando Rebello told the Journal News daily outside his home, It’s my daughter, my baby daughter…I’m so confused. I don’t know what to do.”

Andrea Rebello was in her third year of university, studying public relations, Hofstra University said.

There have been several fatal shootings across the United States over the past few months, putting the issue of lax gun control laws back in the spotlight.

Every year, more than 30,000 people are shot and killed across the United States.

The US averages 87 gun deaths each day as a function of gun violence, with an average of 183 injured, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab and the Centers for Disease Control.

  1. “According to the police, the man who was wearing a mask, knocked on the door of the home and when one of the residents looked to see who was there, he burst in.”

    Didn’t her mother ever teach her to find out who’s on the other side of the door BEFORE you open it?

    The surveillance state has moved crime indoors, so home invasions are becoming popular.

    The blame for this crime doesn’t fall on the police. It falls on herself for failing to take measures to defend herself and her home, and if she chose to live in the TV fantasy world of police always arriving in time to stop crime, she’s an idiot, and she paid the ultimate price for being one.

    She looks like a gun control advocate anyway, so I’m kind of glad she’s dead. Maybe her surviving loved ones needed this to wake up.

    1. If somebody is going to force their way into your house they are going to do it. Also the article did say that when she checked to see who was at the door that the suspect bursted in.

    2. That is an awful thing to say, what kind of creep are you? I don’t care if she is against guns, she doesn’t deserve that

  2. “She looks like a gun control advocate anyway, so I’m kind of glad she’s dead.”

    WTF Jolly Roger what’s wrong with you? No one deserves to be shot for no reason, particularly young woman at the start of her life. Stop being an idiot.

  3. “‘Shortly after our arrival, a shooting took place where the suspect is killed and one of the female victims are killed,’ said Deputy Inspector Kenneth Lack of the Nassau County Police Department… it appeared that the gunman and the police exchanged gunfire.”

    So was she killed by so-called friendly fire?

    1. How convenient of them to leave that little tidbit of information out, no?

      That’s exactly why I said that the cops were to blame for that young woman’s death.

      Regardless of whether they were the ones who shot her (and most likely they were, being they’re such pussies they never do ANYTHING solo, so they most likely fired FAR more rounds than the gunman), I still hold them responsible for her death, since they initiated the shooting in the first place.
