KANSAS CITY, Mo. A young man died Monday afternoon after a woman says she shot him in self-defense after he put a gun to her head and locked her in a closet.
Police say two young men, in their teens knocked on the womans door and asked to see a man. When the woman at the house in the 5800 block of Garfield told the men he wasnt there, police say the men forced their way in, pointed a gun at the womans head, and put her in a closet.
While they rummaged through her house, the woman, who is in her 20s says she found the gun that she hides in the closet. She stepped out of the closet and shot one of the men. He stumbled out of the house, into the yard, and collapsed in the front yard, where a neighbor found him.
There was some bloody clothes and he was just shakin terribly shaking, said Liz Randle. And I said, Oh. He done got shot, and his clothes they came down below his waist and he was really, really looking awfully bad.
The woman told police the other man, who was dressed in an orange shirt, ran from the scene.
Police have not released the name of the victim. They say charges are not likely since it appears the woman acted in self-defense.
Uh yeah. Id have got him. He come up on your house, he deserve to get shot, said Albert Jordan, another neighbor.
Here’s a link to the audio about the incident:
Another happy ending. -sniff-
Rudely expressed, but directly to the point.
She keeps the gun in the closet and that is where they decide to lock her up?? Hmmm. I am not a great believer in coincidences like that.
Note to self: “Self, if you ever stick someone in a closet during a home invasion, SEARCH THE FREAKIN’ CLOSET FOR WEAPONS FIRST!!!”
Any mention of race? Is Al Sharpton there yet? NO? I’m starting to form an oppinion.
I’m a fan of the verbiage used: She “found” the gun in the closet.
It’s as if she was just sitting there feeling sorry for herself, “Oh me, oh my, I can’t believe I’m locked in this closet.”
And then EUREKA! “Oh Lordy thank you for this gun I just happened find in my closet.”
Journalism is a joke anymore.
Note that there are no mentions of race in this article, yet the majority of us likely knew this was a black-on-black crime. Where’s the outrage?
“Oh no, please don’t lock me in that closet!”
The perp's fatal mistake was letting the victim out of his sight. May we continue to be blessed with foolish perps.
Other than that, "Black on Black, Step Back."

PS, Most Reverend Fellows, since your "flocks" live without benefit of clergy, why should I listen to you?
Nobody puts Baby in the closet.
My initial image after reading this comment is that it was probably somebody who likes to wear his pants about halfway down his butt. As he tried to flee the house after getting shot, gravity took over and his pants fell down to his knees, or lower.
I could be wrong, but a young male wearing pants in that manner would tend to answer the race question.
Good shooting Citizen. Civilization thanks you.
You’re not wrong. Observantly stereotypical, but not wrong.
“I beg you. Please don’t lock me in that closet”
