Woman Shoots 2 Intruders, 1 Dead
(NBC) Dallas police say a woman shot two people who kicked in the door to her house and one of the intruders died.
It happened at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 7200 block of Concordia Drive.
Dallas police said the woman was home alone when she heard a noise — two men had kicked in the front door of her house.
She confronted the two men as they reached the second floor landing and shot them several times, according to police.
The intruders ran out the front door and police said one of the men collapsed from a gunshot wound, he was transported to Methodist Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other man is still on the run.
Investigators said a gun was recovered at the home, which let them know that at least one of the intruders was armed.
A man and his 22-year-old daughter live at the home and say they had a break-in once before.
He told NBC 5 he taught his daughter how to shoot, and because she works at night and sleeps during the day, he left the gun by her pillow, just like he does every day. He said she was prepared when the break-in happened.
