New York Man Facing Manslaughter Charges for Protecting Family from Burglar

Rob Richardson

A New York Man is facing manslaughter charges after he did what any normal man trying to protect his family would do – stop a gun wielding burglar form entering his home.

Youssef Abdel-Gawad shot and killed a suspected burglar who was trying to break into his family’s home with four other armed intruders. Police say four accomplices waited in a backyard shed, while one of the burglars, holding a gun, tried to gain entrance into the home. The armed man fired his gun towards the sliding glass door, causing Abdel-Gawad and his two brothers to take action.

The brothers grabbed wooden sticks, and Youssef grabbed a shotgun.

“It is what anyone would do in a situation like this. Someone attacks your house with a gun, you know, fought back, and you know, returned fire, you know, so it is a clear case of self-defense,” said the defendant’s other brother, Karim Abdel-Gawad.

The brothers chased the alleged burglars from the porch, and Youssef fired, striking a 33-year-old man from Roosevelt, New York in the back. The alleged criminal intruder, Jazzmen Bryant, later died of his wounds.

Youssef Abdel-Gawad was then arrested and has been charged with manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide, all for doing what any normal person would do – protecting his family.

You really have to love when our criminal justice system gives the criminals more rights than the law-abiding citizens who are just trying to live their lives and protect their families from harm.

    A gun free zone for law abiding citizens but ok for criminals to have guns.

  2. He did the right thing but in the wrong town/state. Jew York is a gun free zone. Good thing too. When Anti-judeo Forces go in to clean up the place, we will have less resistance to deal with. –
