    Woman kills attacker; 8 shootings claim 4 lives

    A woman shot an armed man to death Tuesday after he attacked her as she was entering her east-side Detroit home, police said.
    The woman, who owns a car dealership, was at the side door of her home in the 15200 block of Troester at 7:45 p.m. when a man ran up behind her brandishing a nickel-plated handgun, Officer Derek Jones said.

    \"He said, \'I got you,\"'Jones said.

    She tried to shut her screen door, but he pulled it open and began shoving her into the house, police said. As they struggled, she pulled a handgun from her purse and fired about five shots, Jones said.

    The man fell to the ground between the door and the driveway.

    Jones said the man was 42 years old and had a criminal record for breaking and entering homes. Police declined to release his name pending notification of his relatives.

    Jones said the woman had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    Detroit police said citywide, at least eight people were shot in less than four hours Tuesday night. At least four of them were killed in the incidents which included a carjacking and an incident police said was drug related.
