Self-defense in Memphis

Oh, and neighbors are shocked scared. East Memphis woman shoots burglar after he kicks down her door.

He was looking for somebody. He found somebody, but not who he was looking for.

Police say William Barnes was shot after he kicked in the front door of a home on South Holmes Street. Four days later the shooting still has one neighbor traumatized

The guy who got shot – several times – ended up at a local hospital, where he was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary.

The neighbor? She shocked and dismayed to discover that she lives in The Real World™ and some fantasy land.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do right now. I mean, it’s so disturbing that this happened.”

After a week she says that. (I am woman, hear me cry hysterically.)
