New Orleans woman fatally shoots armed intruder
Posted: Apr 6, 2011 8:35 AM by Nichole Larkey & AP
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a woman fatally shot a man who had broken into her home. The shooting happened around 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say the woman had just entered the home with her three children, when an armed intruder broke in a short time later. They say the man flashed a gun and the woman pulled her own weapon and fired at the intruder multiple times.
The unidentified man was taken to a hospital where he (was pronounced) dead.
Detectives have classified the shooting as justifiable. The case will now go to the Orleans Parish District Attorney's office for review.
Good shooting. Another one bites the dust. Civilization thanks you madam.
Whoever she is, She ROCKS!!
Mother with 3 kids, that was a quick and great reaction on nher part.
I hate it when I hear that the perp got away.
If the detectives have declared it justifiable, what is served by having things reviewed by the DA's office? If the DAs clear the shooting, will the case then go to the state Supreme Court for review? And then what? How many times does it have to be deemed justifiable, to be justifiable?
Actually..she was also wise to kill the perp..because now there is only her story..and that is the best story there is..
WTG. wish she could kill a new crook every night for the rest of the year. Maybe then the streets might be safe.
Do cops realize that if we arm the citizens, their jobs are a lot easier. All you have to do is write up some paperwork?
I’m so glad she blew this puke away! Good for her!
Another dead useless & cowardly scumbag. “Handguns are made for killin’, ain’t no good for nothin’ else...” - Lynyrd Skynyrd. Well sometimes that’s enough for me.
I bet the dead POS still votes for Obama next year.
There should NEVER be two sides to that kind of story.
Does anyone know if there is a ‘dead scumbag’ ping list? If there is one, please add me...if not, someone PLEASE start one. I don’t monitor closely enough to do it.
These stories brighten my day! If that makes me twisted, I can live with myself.
Wow. I wanna be THAT gal.
Apparently hers was one of the firearms New Orleans’ thug cops failed to steal after Katrina.
Yes, and they've followed it through to the logical conclsion. Namely if more citizens defended themselves from criminals there would be far less demand for police. any power taken by citizens is power that is not in the hands of government bureaucrats. The bureaucrats (armed and otherwise) don't like that.
Yippy-ki-ay-yay!!! Love those Old West shootouts!!!
Ah, yes, of course, you are right.
