Woman shoots, kills bow-and-arrow-armed intruder
10:01 AM, Oct. 11, 2011
An auxiliary Florida Highway Patrol trooper shot and killed her neighbor Monday night after he came into her home armed with a bow and arrow and asked for money.
Sean Harris, 24, of the 4200 block of Lynn Ora Drive was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital, where he died about 9:45 p.m. Monday.
Auxiliary Trooper Tabbatha Nussbaumer was in the shower in her upstairs bathroom when her 9-year-old son told her a man he didnít recognize was in the house, the Pensacola Police Department said.
When Nussbaumer left her bathroom, Harris was at the bottom of the stairs holding the bow and arrow, police said.
Nussbaumer said Harris asked for money.
In an effort to get Harris out the house, Nussbaumer told him she had money in her truck. As Nussbaumer went out the front door, Harris followed and removed his clothes, police said.
Nussbaumerís truck was parked on the street.
Police said Nussbaumer removed a handgun from the truck, turned around, faced Harris, who was standing a few feet from her, and shot him as he walked toward her, police said.
When police arrived on Lynn Ora Drive, Harris was lying nude in the street.
He was shot once in the lower abdomen. An autopsy is set for today.
The Police Department's investigation into the shooting is continuing.

1) what the heck is a "auxiliary" trooper?
2) why didn't she have her firearm inside the house?
She got really lucky that she faced a criminal who was stupid enough to allow her to go outside and get what she needed to defend herself. This situation could have been much worse for her.
I am speechless...
Congrats to a quick-thinking FL Trooper...

Glad things worked out for the trooper. Very strange story.
Wow! She suffered from poor planning but was quick witted enough to survive. It sounds to me like she would have been raped.

Lock the darn doors..........Tabbatha Nussbaumer was in the shower in her upstairs bathroom when her 9-year-old son told her a man he didn’t recognize was in the house
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
This story sounds a bit fishy to me.

OMG!! Does this mean the "Sheriff of Nothingham" has finally managed to end the reign of "Robin Hoodlum" while armed with his trusty bow and arrow?? One would expect him to be naked - but what will become of his merry men after this??? Geeezzee....another fairy tale shot down - what a heart-breaker

She may have had other guns in the house, and she intended to lure him outside to buy herself some time, and distance him away from her son. It all does seem a bit fishy, and/or really dumb BG. Regardless, we only have a media story to go by.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
I may be wrong about this but a little something in the back of my head is screaming "DOMESTIC!!!!!!"
