A Frayser woman shot and killed an intruder who kicked in her apartment door and tried to rob her around midnight Sunday.

Tameca Drummer, a resident at Carriage House apartments at 1115 Frayser Blvd., told police the man, along with two others, forced their way into her home demanding money.

The people in her apartment, including her two children, were forced into the living room, while one of the intruders forced her into the bedroom looking for money, police spokesman Sgt. Vince Higgins said.

When that man struck her on the head with his handgun, she wrestled the gun away from him and shot and killed him*, according to a police incident report.

Two other men involved in the attempted burglary fled in a teal green minivan. Police were still looking for them Monday.

The Fire Department members who arrived on the scene pronounced the intruder dead.

Instant justice...and well deserved. Another victim selection snafu, and thinning of the genius gene pool.

The anti's are always saying that you shouldn't carry a gun because someone will just take it away and use it on you. Seems they are right.:neener:

she wrestled the gun away from him and shot and killed him

They don't know that the best thing to do when a criminal comes - always be compliant. The LEOs in Washington City always say it's the way to go. They couldn't be wrong.

Amen. At least we didn't tie up the courts with this.

Not to mention paying for his sojourn in the penal system.

Wait.. why was the fire dept. responding to this ?.. and before police no lessBecause in many places fire dept. personel are also EMTs. And it doesn't say the FD arrived first...
