The sheriff in Geneva County, Alabama, says a suspected home invader was shot dead by a female homeowner Saturday night after he refused to heed her warnings.
WTVY reports that the unidentified suspect allegedly began beating on the woman’s door and refused to stop though she gave him numerous warnings. As he persisted she ultimately opened fire, killing the suspect.
Geneva County Sheriff Tony Helms said the incident occurred in a “remote area” and that the woman is not expected to face any charges for killing the suspect.
