So how would you respond to someone trying to force their way into your home? Sanford woman shoots, kills home intruder :: WRAL.com

Deputies said a woman at 320 S. Plank Road grabbed her pistol after hearing somebody jiggling her door knob just before 11 a.m.

When the woman answered the door, Bryant Latrelle Martin, 29, of 281 S. Plank Road, attempted to force his way into the house and got into a struggle with the homeowner, authorities said.

She shot several times. He suffered a “gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The homeowner’s son was in the house at the time and called 911.

North Carolina has a version of the Castle Doctrine, so I for one doubt that the homeowner will face charges, but those decisions aren’t made by cops. They apparently decided not to arrest her for the shooting, which makes perfect sense.

Self-defense is a human-right.
