911 Audio: Woman Shoots And Kills Home Intruder

"I don't want to kill him"

But she did because she had to.

I was going to do some snark about loving a story with a happy ending but it's clear this woman is troubled by what she was forced to do. At least she'll be alive to deal with it.

More on the story below the fold.


Seems like the guy was drunk or high on something.

The burglary suspect was identified as Bill Riley, 53. Investigators said he may have been under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

Mangion said Riley had been driving near the woman's house when he crashed his pickup truck.

It wasn't immediately clear why he went to Jackson's home.

"For me listening to the call the hardest part was hearing her pray for forgiveness, being put in a position that no one should ever have to be put into taking action in her own hands," said Joan Herd, a Lincoln County 911 dispatch who was on the phone with Jackson during the incident.

Jackson's family did not want to comment at this time.

Mangion said the case is being investigated as a homicide and information has been sent to the district attorney, who will determine whether if there will be any charges in this shooting. Under state law, Jackson was in the right to take legal action in self defense.

And in reality the chances of her facing any legal consequences appear to less than none.
