    Yes.

    This is the second story running of a potential victim shooting once then fleeing for "safety." Guns are not one-shot-stop tools, as this lady nearly found out.

    Maybe she shot as much as she could. She was struggling with him before and after he was shot and she said he didn't know he had been shot. Part of that struggle may have involved control of the muzzle of the gun.

    Teacher Defends Shooting Attacker

    Teacher Defends Shooting Attacker

    PALM RIVER - Juanita Enzor said she had no choice but to shoot Mark Johnson when she said he forced his way into her home and bedroom.
    "The man kicked in my door, came into my house - I had to defend myself," Enzor said of the attack, which happened at about 5 a.m. Monday.
    The 62-year-old Memorial Middle School teacher told authorities she armed herself when she heard a noise and shot when the man accosted her in her bedroom.
    Enzor briefly recounted the event Tuesday, standing in her front yard chatting with, and being comforted by, a neighbor.
    She said she and her attacker "tussled" both before and after she fired her firearm, showing her bruised fingers to show the force of the scuffle.
    "He didn't know he had been shot," she said.
    Enzor said she keeps to herself. She said she owns rental houses in the once working-class neighborhood and doesn't mingle much.
    "I lock my gate when I come in and again when I leave," she said of the 4-foot chain-link fence that surrounds the house at 1010 Kirkland Drive where she has lived since at least 1981.
    Enzor didn't go into more details, referring all questions to the detectives who are investigating.
    Authorities said Enzor fought off her attacker and ran to a next-door neighbor, who called the sheriff's office. Arriving deputies found Johnson, 40, dead, shot once in the upper torso.
    Enzor bristled at statements Johnson's mother, Carleane Conry, made to the Florida Sentinel Bulletin that Enzor and her son knew each other and Johnson had been in the home on a number of occasions. Conry couldn't be reached for comment.
    "He has never been in my house. Never," Enzor said. "No one comes in my house."
    Debbie Carter, a sheriff's spokeswoman, said detectives were told Enzor "knew Johnson from the neighborhood."
    Enzor denied even that much of a relationship.
    "I may have seen him in the neighborhood, but I never knew him," she said.
    Enzor questioned why Conry would make such statements.
    "That lady doesn't know me," she said. "I have nothing to say to anyone."
    Carter said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing. No charges are pending against Enzor.
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.
