    South Carolina: Belton mother foils attempted break-in by shooting at men

    Belton mother foils attempted break-in by shooting at men

    A mother who was caring for her young child foiled two men’s attempts to break in to her house about 1:30 p.m. Monday when she, from her kitchen, shot at the men.

    The woman’s identity was not released, and the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office did not release any other identifying details, saying only that “a homeowner” had fired shots. But the woman’s husband confirmed that it was his wife who fired at least two shots when the men tried to break in to their home on Broadway School Road in Belton while he was out of town.

    Authorities did not know whether the woman had hit and injured either of the men. As of Monday night, no one had been arrested, and authorities were still looking for two black men in a burgundy compact car.

    “The homeowner said two black males came to the front door and rang the doorbell, but the homeowner did not know them and so did not open the door,” said Chad McBride, a spokesman for the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. “They drove their car to the back of the house and then picked up an object — a rock or a tool — and threw it through a glass door at the back of the house. “At that point, the homeowner fired a couple of shots.”

    After the shooting, the men fled the location and drove away in their car, McBride said.

    McBride said investigators found “no evidence at the home that would indicate” someone had been shot, but said authorities have not ruled out the possibility that at least one of the men had been injured.

    McBride said sheriff’s deputies have worked several break-ins lately in which the robber or robbers have gotten into the homes the way these men tried to get into the Belton house on Monday. But he said investigators are not prepared to say the break-ins are connected.

    Now see that is what I'm talkin' 'bout!

    No one is required to answer a door just because some strangers ring or knock.
    She stayed alert though, armed herself just in case...And when things went sour she was able to flip the switch in her head and by that act without equivocation. Perfect.

    Makes you just want to wait until they get inside and open them all over the floor doesn't it?

    Sorry, I'm in a bad mood today!

    This is a good change. Lately all we've been seeing, are reports of people getting assaulted for opening doors to strangers.

    Congrats to this women...protecting herself and her family.

    The only sad part is that two dirtbags are alive to break in somewhere else.

    Good for her. Anyone who is willing to pull a stunt like this deserves to have some hot lead sent their way. The only regret is that it seems she missed...

    I don't think they'll try her house again! This could have been real ugly if she had opened the door. Thank goodness she had a game plan and used it.
