Target of Weyburn, Sask. home invasion faces murder charge after allegedly shooting invader who later died


The 23-year-old man who was the target of a home invasion in Weyburn, Keegan Muxlow, is facing a second-degree murder charge, after allegedly shooting and killing an 18-year-old man who broke into his home with two others.
Muxlow is also facing charges unsafe storage of a firearm and possession of a firearm without a licence.
The two other men who were alleged to have broken into the home, a 23-year-old and a 25-year-old, have been charged with break and enter and commit assault, possession of a firearm without a licence, and wearing a disguise during the commission of an offence.
The 23-year-old was also charged with possession of what police described as a small amount of cocaine that was found during a search at the police headquarters.
The men were all known to each other, according to police.
Deputy Chief Rod Stafford said that the home invaders had a shotgun with them but didn't know if they were carrying any other weapons.
The 18-year-old—identified as Nathan Hutt of Weyburn—who is alleged to have been part of the home invasion died in hospital around 12:30 a.m. CST on Saturday after shots were fired during a confrontation at the home.
Stafford said that the investigation so far doesn't point to there being a gunfight, meaning that the only shots fired came from Muxlow's .22-calibre rifle.
The 23-year-old invader was also injured. Stafford said he was stabbed.
As for the reason for the home invasion, Stafford said they're still in the dark about that.
"That's one of the main questions we still have unanswered and we're hoping that once we interview each of the people in custody, that they will be able to shed some light if not considerable light on that," he said.
A police dog is being brought in from Estevan to help search for another piece of evidence, but Stafford said it was "not crucial".
Officers were sent to the 300 block of 4th Street Northeast on Friday night after receiving a call about a home invasion involving firearms, according to a news release by Weyburn police.
After securing the house, police learned two injured men, aged 18 and 23, had arrived at the Weyburn General Hospital.
Police went to the hospital and determined both men were suspects in the alleged home invasion, according to Weyburn Police Chief Marlo Pritchard. He said their injuries were related to a confrontation during the invasion.
Community response
The Weyburn Police tweeted Sunday that the community has been very supportive of them during the investigation but wanted citizens to "avoid speculation".
Stafford echoed that sentiment.
"Until you know the facts, don't jump to conclusions and don't take sides," he said.
"Even at this point, like I say, we're the only ones really that have any inkling of the true nature of the investigation."
He also said they have been getting a lot of tips from the community and he urged people to keep coming in or call in to give anything they might know about the incident.
This was the first homicide in Weyburn in over 20 years, with the last one happening in 1995. The chief of police said he believed this was an isolated incident, and there was no wider risk to the community.

I do not own a firearm and have no intention of getting one. From the little bit that I've heard on the radio it sounds like the homeowner knew the home invaders, but that doesn't change the fact that his home was invaded by armed intruder's with at least one shot gun. This may have been drug related but that doesn't change the fact that this was a home invasion by armed invaders, and I'm sure that the resident of this home was in fear for his life. The resident of this home has been charged after repelling these Home invaders that came with at least one shot gun. I admit that I do not know much about the facts of the story beyond what I've heard on the radio and read in the thread post above mine, but it just feels wrong at this point that the residents of the home has been charged with anything beyond cocaine possession.
Shotgun and knives one of the knives cut the homeowner from the article. He will be guilty of no firearms possession license and unlawful storage of firearms, I agree with you about defending himself.
The masks were there from other criminal acts as the place was a hideout and greed would be motive, the shooter was increasing his take and it was a move that was above his pay-grade. There was a lot more coke than what was recovered. One last ride before jail.
Did you know him MHz?
