Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0

What would you do if you found a strange man in your bedroom? Piedmont homeowner shoots and kills invader.
“She believed someone was attempting to break in the residence,” [Sheriff Larry] Amerson said. “She obtained a firearm she owned and went upstairs to see what was going on.”

After going upstairs, the victim discovered a glass sliding door on the second floor had been shattered and saw light from a flashlight moving around in her bedroom.

“She saw a man going through her bedroom … he yelled something at her … she wasn’t sure what it meant and she was scared and she shot him several times,” Amerson said.
No charges are planned against the woman.
She was totally within her rights to defend herself. And in Alabama, a homeowner does not have to have approval or a permit to own or possess a firearm in his or her own residence.
Self-defense is a human right.
