Home Invasion Suspect Shot And Paralyzed By Resident Has Died

Posted on July 3, 2012


Vermont (The Gaslamp Post) – One of two suspects in a home invasion which occurred last month in the tiny town of Winooski has died.  26-year-old Trinelle Cox, was shot twice in the early hours of June 12, 2012, as he and another man tried to force their way into someone’s home.

23-year-old Mizrain Lujano, the resident of the apartment admitted shooting Cox and another New York man when they tried to force their way into his home.  23-year-old Angel Concepsion, who accompanied Cox during the attempted home invasion was also wounded.

Cox reportedly underwent surgery last week to remove the bullet which shattered his spine.  According to the Burlington Free Press, the injury would leave Cox paralyzed for the rest of his life.

The second suspect, Angel Concepsion was due in court this afternoon, to determine if he could be eligible for bond.

Police are investigating possible leads in the case to determine if more arrests will be made of other possible suspects.  Information filed into a report by police is expected to be sent to Chittenden County’s State’s Attorney’s office to determine if Lujano will be facing charges.
