police shoot woman after she shot home invader

Police in Alabama said officers shot a woman who had shot an intruder during a home invasion after she didn’t drop her weapon.

Huntsville police spokesman lieutenant Darryl Lawson told local news site AL.com the woman’s estranged husband came into the house she shared with her mother armed with a gun on Sunday afternoon. The woman opened fire with a shotgun, wounding him.

Her mother called 911 and when police arrived, they heard gunshots and saw the woman in the garage holding the shotgun. They demanded she drop the weapon and when she turned toward them with the gun in her hand, at least one officer fired.

If they announced they were the police, which I suspect they did, I don't really see the issue.

Good thing to know if one is a home invader targeting your family.

In good concealed carry classes, they go over this exact issue and how to act when the police get there.

When the cops show up, they are going to shoot anyone that points a gun at them. They don't know what happened--all they know is there's a corpse on the ground and a person holding a shotgun pointing it at them.

This is a tragic mistake by everyone and not necessarily an indication of an evil police force.

If that dude survives, I hope they put him away for a long time.

Still, the police response aside, that is what gun ownership is all about. A woman was able to defend her life with a Walmart special.

Officers say the estranged husband’s injuries are life-threatening. The woman is expected to survive.

Shotgun vs. pistol.

So the home invader was the estranged husband?

Didn't seem to help Seattle much.

Seattle's call -- to line up in a shotgun formation with two receivers stacked on the right side and attempt a slant under a pick play -- is startling for multiple reasons.

He was likely screwed by his ex wife and the courts. She probably deserved it for taking his kids, all his money, his house and his self esteem.

Whether or not she did those things has little to do with justification for home invasion and attempted murder. Oh, and fuck you for insinuating that other forum members would support murder. You illustrate once again where the source is of the bullshit, sniveling behavior of this forum.


Or maybe she just got back from an elephant hunt, huh princess?

Can anyone name the forum member most likely to insinuate that other forum members would support murder?
