Portland Mom SHOOTS & KILLS Intruder
Just days after a naked intruder was shot in southwest Portland, a mother returning home in southeast Portland with her 2 children found a man in her child’s bedroom. She pulled out her gun, and you can imagine what happened next.
From the Oregonian:
Portland Police said the woman shot and killed the 59-year-old man inside her Powellhurst-Gilbert home sometime before 1:47 a.m.
The homeowner wasn’t identified in a press release, but police said she came home along with her 5 and 10 year-old children early Sunday and found the man inside the residence.
She has since cooperated with police, officials said, and was not arrested.
Neighbor Amber Murray tells KOIN 6 News the home was vacant for a while before the woman and her children moved in.
“I know when the previous renters were there, there was a lot of mischief,” Murray said. “After they moved out I think there were a few squatters in and out of there.”
Police are working to determine why the man was in the home.
His name has not been released. An autopsy is set for Monday.
