    I hope this is not a double post.


    Man with long rap sheet killed during break-in


    A Nashville man with a long record of arrests was shot and killed early yesterday morning when he broke into a Nashville woman's Madison apartment, police said.

    Maurice Wilson Jr., 21, was fatally wounded shortly after he and at least one other person kicked in the apartment's back door at the Heritage House apartments on Heritage Drive, police spokesman Don Aaron said.

    He added that the woman, 18, and her cousin, 21, had responded to a knock on the door about 1:30 a.m. and saw two masked men.

    ''The two women retreated to an upstairs bedroom as the suspects kicked in the back door,'' Aaron said. ''As one of them came to the doorway of the bedroom where the two women were hiding, the older cousin, who had retrieved a pistol from a nightstand, fired one time. The intruder was hit and died at the scene from a gunshot wound to the head.''

    Police did not release the names of the women.

    The second intruder fired twice before fleeing, but neither woman was injured, Aaron said.

    Wilson was wearing a nylon stocking and blue bandanna over his face. Over the past three years he had been charged with 38 offenses including unlawful weapon possession, domestic as-sault and drug possession, Aaron said.

    Sounds like another lowlife bites the dust through natural selection.

    Or to quote people who play Counterstrike (myself included), Owned!

    (I do not relish the thought of another human being killed, but when an individual proves himself time and time again to be unfit for civilized society, and nothing more than an animal, they must be put down)

    I used to live in those apartments right after high school. I e-mailed the story to my wife hoping that she finally gets it and learns how to shoot my guns if she ever needs to. She's not an anti but she is nervous with handling guns. She's slowly coming around to going to the range though. I just need to find a little .22 for her to learn with. My .40 and .45 are not what I want to teach her with. We still live within 10 minutes of where this occured and maybe she'll realize it can happen anywhere.

    I am delighted to learn that the Tennessee tradition of the strong frontier woman is continued by their modern day counterparts. One head shot, one kill. Very impressive. :)

    I applaud this woman. We need more like her. Either she has practiced with that pistol, or she is a great natural shot. Either way, she is tops in my book.:D

    Two more possibilities: dumb luck, or the hand of an angel.

    All four possibilities seem to be equally likely to me. :)

    Wow, good shot. I was expecting to read that the cousin doing the shooting was male. Kinda cool that she's only 21, too. Wonder if I can get her number...

    We really need an applause smiley. A couple of them giving a standing O would be cool.

    The thumbs up just does not convey the meaning.


    Good shoot. I am impressed. In New York she'd be off to jail about now.

    OR, it could have just been dumb luck...

    Good shoot in any case. Too bad she didn't go for slide lock and take care of the other perp that actually shot back at her.

    Now if only these type of stories were as common as all the victim got killed stories.

    We know they happen - just need reporters to report them.

    Wonder if the cousin is a convert now.....

    This just makes me more anxious to get a couple hundred rounds of .38Spc, get a babysitter for a couple hours, and take my wife to the range so she can get a bunch of practice in with her revolver. We live a pretty darn safe neighborhood, but you hear every so often about a home invasion in a "safe neighborhood" and I really don't want to have to explain to my daughter why her mom got killed because she hadn't practiced enough with her gun.

    Good shooting. Whoever the 2nd perp was will probably think about a job at McDonalds after seeing his buddies head blown open. If not, he won't be bothering those girls again. As for the perp who died. He slipped through the legal system long enough to find a responsable citizen to do the job and won't be bothering anyone.

    Oh, and blissninnies everywhere can point and say "See! Guns kill people!"

    Happy ending for all. :neener:

    Hey, anybody know what caliber of pistol she used? I'm thinking, if we could find out who she is, and her address, have some ammo for that gun shipped to her doorstep.
