    Thumbs up Resident shoots man

    A woman shot and wounded a drunken man early Saturday when he approached her door and allegedly threatened her after a night of celebrating his 21st birthday, police said today.

    Denise Dees, 50, told Goldsboro police that a man approached the door at her home on Ridgewood Drive, pushed on it, and then issued a threatening statement.

    "She (Mrs. Dees) said that he said something threatening. She picks up her weapon and fires a shot through the door, hits him in the shoulder. It's what we call a 'grazing' wound," police spokesman Chad Calloway said.

    The incident occurred shortly after midnight, investigators said.

    Calloway said that excessive alcohol consumption had Bradley Allen Broft, 21, of Monroe Lane, in an amnesiac stupor.

    "I don't think he knows where he is -- he thinks he's somewhere else," Calloway said.

    Broft was transported to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released, the police spokesman said.

    After the incident, Broft talked with his father and was distressed about having blacked out from excessive alcohol consumption, Calloway reported.

    "They're not bothered (so much) by the fact that he was shot, they were bothered by the fact that he did something like this, going up to a woman's door," Calloway said.

    After Broft was released from the hospital, he expressed an interest in meeting with Mrs. Dees, who said she also wanted to meet with Broft, the spokesman said.

    Police arranged for the meeting, and both parties exchanged apologies, Calloway said. No charges have been or will be filed, police said.
    "She (Mrs. Dees) was just as apologetic as she can be. She was completely within her rights," Calloway said.

    The police spokesman said the 21-year-old man found out the hard way that abusing alcohol can have unintended consequences.

    "It was just a lesson learned in a bad way," Calloway said.

    You only turn 21 once and if your lucky and stay sober you might see 22.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    He pushed on the door and it was apparently locked ,then he made a threatening statement so she shot through the door and hit him.In some states they wouldn't meet in imminent fear of life requirement

    I hope Ms. Dees recovers from the fact that she HAD to defend herself. Hope the new 21 year old 'strightens up'.

    Good shoot overall and glad to hear no charges filed, although 'our' 21 year old needs a little 'reinforcement' me thinks.

    Thats one of the first things that they teach in the CC course here in NC - if they are trying to get in and making threats, shoot thru the door, don't wait until they get in.

    North Carolina SD laws are a little different: Deadly force can be used to prevent the entry of someone into your house, regardless of imminent threat, so long as the attempted entry is under "felonious circumstances."

    Course, once the intruder is in the house, you cannot use lethal force unless there is an immenent threat again.

    I think that Mrs. D. should take all the time she need to recover from this incident...should take about 2-3 minutes...OK, all better now!

    Hopefully, Mr. B. has learned a lesson about drinking that could have cost him his life.

    It's a good lesson learned. I'm glad he learned his lesson by being grazed in the shoulder instead of learning it by standing trial for vehicular manslaughter for crashing into someone and killing them.

    That kid's getting a second chance and I bet he won't screw up again.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
