Coroner Finds Burglar's Pregnancy Claim Was False

Posted: Updated:

Police say 26-year-old Gus Adams is charged with residential robbery and murder for the deadly burglary on Country Club Lane.

Police Chief Jim McDonnell says Adams is being charged with murder, because of the felony murder rule. If you're involved in the act of a felony then you're a party to the murder.

Not the man who pulled the trigger.

The deceased female suspect is 28-year-old Andrea Miller of Long Beach. A coroner has confirmed she was not pregnant as she had claimed to the shooter.

The incident happened Tuesday at 80-year-old Tom Greer's home.

Greer said the suspects were inside his house, ransacking it and then they beat him. Greer managed to get a gun and shot at them, they ran from the house and he shot again.

That's when Miller said, "Don't shoot me. I'm pregnant."

Whether or not Greer shot Miller in self defense is an issue of state of mind not actual location.

Neighbors say they aren't surprised this happened on their street. One resident told us a similar home invasion happened just a week ago, causing some neighbors think twice about how they would react.

As for Greer's condition, he is being treated for a broken collar bone. Police are still questioning him, but he is not considered a flight risk. Although police are investigating the case, it could be presented to the DA as soon as tomorrow.
