    Intruder Shot At Northland Apartment - Kansas City News Story - KMBC Kansas City

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police said an intruder was shot during an attempted break-in at a Northland apartment complex early Monday morning.

    Officers were called to the Wild Oaks complex at Highway 152 and Flintlock Road shortly before 3 a.m.

    Police said a man was trying to break into an apartment when the woman inside grabbed her gun and fired at the intruder through the door.

    The man pulled out his own gun and fired back.

    The intruder was hit twice and was taken to a hospital. He is expected to recover.

    The woman was not injured.
    Nice shooting on the victim's part, and glad to see she was not hit in the exchange. Good for her.

    Seems like a pretty cut-and-dry case. Hope it all pans out in her favor in the end. Too many stories like these where the BG sues the GG for their injuries.

    Good to read articles where people are fighting back and not being so passive.

    It's too bad she was put in that situation, but she handled it fine. Glad to hear she is physically unharned.

    Good for her. I hope she doesn't have any repercussions from it, legal or otherwise.

    So what is the BG's argument for pulling his trigger in return for being shot at while committing a robery? Self Defense? The BG should be charged with attempted murder as well as armed robbery. Throw the book at him and shun private lawyer who would defend him.

    I dunno, shooting THROUGH a door is always iffy. Then again waiting for him to break it in and rush you is bad too. Unless there were witnesses, why couldn't he just claim he was walking along and/or tried the wrong door by mistake, then got shot, hence his return fire?

    I re-read the article. I pictured a scenerio where the BG was already in the appartment, and was shot thru a closed interior door such as a bedroom door. I Agree, shooting thru a closed front door would not be a wise idea.

    It's a shame the BG made it to the hospital...should have been to the coroner.

    Just a note: In some states, (NC for example) you have more legal cover shooting at someone who is in the process of breaking in than you do if they are already in the house.

    A couple of years ago here in Texas a guy tried to enter a house, not his and unfortunately (or fortunately) not the one he meant, through the back door. He was drunk and I don't recall now if he was trying to kick it in or break in somehow, but I seem to remember he was being aggressive in his attempts to enter, and the owner shot him in the head through the door. Accidentally, because the owner fired high to scare him away but the guy was really tall.

    Score one for us short guys, we're smaller targets!

    I am not going to chastise the woman! Home alone, 3 am... you gotta do what you gotta do!

    For me personally, I am not for shooting through doors. Just doesn't sit well with me. I like to have a positive ID on someone I'm going to shoot.

    Just my personal line in the sand kind of thing. I'm not judging this woman.

    Also, which is unclear in this story, but if we are talking about someone who has already gained access to interior of the house and you are shooting through an "interior" door, I find that slightly more acceptable.

    Still, she survived unscathed and used a gun to defend herself.

    This was a bad dude who had a gun with him. He deserved no quarter given.

    On a side note... Shooting through a door, could have caused the bullets to expended enough energy which resulted in being the cause for the bad guy to survive in the first place. Another reason I'm not keen on shooting through doors at targets I can't eyeball!

    Still a big time congratulations for the woman who survived this nightmare! If she had not have had a firearm... She likely may not have survived to see daylight!

    When a gun is what you need to defend yourself... there is no substitute! The bad guy certainly had one!

    Thumbs up

    If a violent break-in as described, kudos to her.

    It was shooting through the door, though. That's enough to get you trussed and hung by the toes, in some places. Still, she apparently knew what impending doom sounded like, as the fool (attempting to break down the door) had a gun and wasn't averse to using it. Live or die. On the instant of a violent attack, it's that simple. The "finger/phone" approach is fairly valueless, at that point.
