Vegas woman fatally shoots intruder who falls through ceiling
Wednesday, September 17, 2003
(09-17) 09:37 PDT LAS VEGAS (AP) --

A woman was justified in shooting a man who fell through her ceiling
while she was getting dressed after a shower, police said Wednesday.

The 31-year-old intruder was wanted for burglary and a parole violation,
and was trying to elude plainclothes police at his door when he fell
into his neighbor's apartment about 4 p.m. Tuesday, Las Vegas police
homicide Lt. Tom Monahan said.

The wounded man was pronounced dead at University Medical Center in Las
Vegas.

Police said the man fell when the floor of an attic crawl space gave way
beneath his weight. His name was not immediately released.

"I think anyone would agree you'd feel your life was in danger when a
burglar falls through your ceiling when you're just getting out of the
shower," Monahan said, adding that police will submit a report to the
Clark County district attorney.

The police lieutenant said the woman, whose name was withheld, is a
single mother of three who bought the gun after her apartment was
burglarized in April.

Monahan said police think the man she shot yesterday also was
responsible for that break-in.

Unless you live in MA NY NJ MD CA, in which case the "victimized" man was just a plumber making sure the pipes were ok. :barf:

In CA, there would be a survivor's suit against the landlord for failing to make the ceiling safe for said burglar. Disgusting state.

Kudos to the lady. She darwined him out for us. :)

"Pull!"

It would really be cool if she had shot him while he was still airborne!

IIRC, she shot him 3 times, he got up and ran, died from a severed thigh artery on way to hospital. No word on what she shot him with.....:rolleyes:
