Donna Jackson, 57, was asleep when she heard Billy Dean Riley pounding on her back door about 12:45 a.m., Sheriff Chuck Mangion said.No charges against the homeowner, because she acted in her own defense.
While on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, Jackson went to investigate and Riley tossed a patio table through the glass door before coming inside. She fired one blast from a 16-gauge shotgun, hitting him in the chest, Mangion said.
The guy who was shot was dead by the time police arrived.
So, how should a single woman react to a man breaking into her home if not with the use of a firearm? This guy may have been drunk, but he was certainly violent. So what would you do? What would you advise your wife/mother/sister/daughter to do?
Self-defense is a human right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
