HOLY CRAP! 911 call of woman defending herself against stalker who broke into her house

This is an amazing dose of reality on many levels. It’s the 911 call of a woman whose house is being broken into by a stalker. The call goes on for a few minutes while the woman locks herself into her bedroom with her newly purchased handgun, as instructed by the 911 operator. Eventually the stalker breaks into her bedroom and, let’s just say it doesn’t go well for the stalker.

But what really struck me was the agony she portrayed after being forced to shoot him. Clearly it wasn’t something she wanted to do but this perp forced her into a difficult situation and while she still has her life, there’s no doubt that she’s traumatized immensely by the whole event and will now have to deal with that.

But thankfully she bought a gun that day and learned how to use it. And she’s alive to tell the story.


-HAMMOND, IN– An Indiana woman shoots and kills an intruder breaking into her home at it’s all caught on tape by the 911 call she was making at the time.

It turns out, the man had been stalking her and she bought the gun for protection.

The woman, who lives in a Hammond townhouse, had been complaining about her former boyfriend for months.

She had filed repeated complaints, said he slashed her tires and in a confrontation at the Legion Hall.

She said, he warned her it’s not over yet!

  1. Due to stuff that’s been happening at the house where I work (ADT security system being installed today), I had a bit of a nightmare last night.
    In it a man approached the house and I told him to stop and leave. He didn’t. He broke through the barricade and walked right up to me.
    I dialed 911 but the Sheriff refused to come to the house (based on the reality of what’s going on at the house and the reason we’re getting the security system installed).
    I then put my hand in my pocket and gripped my .22 magnum revolver (remember – this is just a dream). I pulled back the hammer and prepared to pull the weapon from my pocket. In my dream the guy was laughing.
    I said, “I don’t fire warning shots. The first shot I fire will be at your d*ck!”
    My dream ended there.

  2. Screw that guy. I hope she has a strong family/friend group that will make her get over this ASAP.It is sad that trial lawyers,the ACLU, liberalism et al have screwed us all into fearing trial lawyers,the ACLU and liberalism. She faced perceived punishment or imminent death. Glad she chose her life over death.She has allies.

  3. No law no matter how well crafted by the hand of men (or women for that matter) could have prevented this criminal from breaking into this woman’s home.

    A few bullets however mitigated the situation and prevented it from getting worse.

    FTLOG… please remember this.

  4. It is very sad that a another human was shot in the head. Having siad that, he made the choice to attack her. She properly defended herself.
    She did the right thing and it is the attacker’s fault he got shot. It is a sad thing that he made her blow a hole through his brains. Now she must deal with that trauma.
    You can hear how distraught she was, it is never an easy thing to shoot someone in the
    head. I hope she recovers from this event that was forced on her.

  5. I heard her voice clearly the entire time, yet did NOT hear a gun shot… even a .22 shot is louder than a voice… not sure this is even legit… lol

  6. I heard her voice very clearly the entire time, but did NOT hear a gun shot… I’m wondering if this is even legit… even a .22 shot is louder than a voice… lol

  7. Liberal Gun Control:
    The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

  8. According to the official “Manifesto of Liberal Victimization”, this woman should be dead, because liberal radicals are not happy until everyone is a VICTIM AND ALL VICTIMS ARE DEAD!

    Rid the world of liberalism, and the world can live in peace again.

  9. Another happy ending… so sad that she will be scarred by this horrible event.

    The world is a better place now that another monster is slain.

  10. Wonder if Rand Paul can play this in his next filibuster. Probably will be the only way its going to get heard in congress. Just reading the transcript doesn’t have the same effect.

    1. And the mom with twins that Scoop posted a couple months ago w/husband on the phone with his wife and on another phone with 911.

  11. Still the only way to stop the bad guys with guns is with good guys with guns. Anything other is “feel good” BS. Ask this lady is it better to “feel good” or alive.

    1. Good guys and good gals with guns! Women are outnumbering men in firearms background checks 🙂

  12. This is an all too frequent occurrence. My best friend was married to one of these psychos. He locked her in the trunk once and was driving her to God knows where. She got out when he stopped at a convenience store and she pushed in the back seat and ran away. Once he tried to drown her in the tub and he beat her regularly. She called the cops all the time-they did nothing. She finally moved out and 10 years later he is still stalking her despite a restraining order which is worthless. He is a big exec at a well known company. These men all protect each other. Her parents and even a pastor advised her to stay w him. I am the only person who has validated her fears and I finally got her to get counseling. I am hoping it will help her to see she is drawing these same types of men to her and to stop it!

    1. Her parents and the pastor were wrong.The scripture is explicit in it’s command to husbands to ‘Love their wives”!Beating and abusing your wife is not love and I am sure the Lord would accept her reason for divorce as legitimate.

    2. God has a commandment against adultery. However, God has the perfect justice. He knows the heart and intention of each person. If she attracts the wrong men to herself, she needs to recognize and resolve that issue first. She’s not alone. It happens to a very high percentage of people. God said separation was the result of hard hearts. Men are affected, also. I remember overhearing the bridesmaids of a bride-to-be tell her “I hope you will have a happy married life”, and the response was, “I do too, but if I don’t I’ll just divorce him”. What a way to start a married life. I wondered if the man would want to marry her , that day, if he knew she had said that. I don’t know, to this day, what happened to their marriage. Usually, the lack of Christian upbringing is the reason for hardening of hearts in so many ways—the ‘what’s in it for me’ mentality. Let’s just say a good upbringing of Christian teachings would, at least, be helpful in discerning the intentions of someone else.

  13. Why didn’t she just tell him to stop? Oh wait she did….funny how it didn’t deter him at all. Thankfully she had a weapon to defend herself with.

    How many liberals would hear that tape and say…”Having a gun didn’t protect her” or lament the loss of life of this dirtbag?

    1. The libs would say her tone was too harsh, she needed to be more kind and gentle, perhaps offer to make fresh coffee, and then the man would listen.

  14. What did it take before the police arrived on the scene? Five, six minutes? She took care of the situation in a matter of seconds, because of her wanting not to be the victim.

    “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. Benjamin Franklin”

    This woman chose not to give up her essential liberty for the police to provide her temporary safety and she lives another day.

    Scarred none the less because of the life that was taken, but after time will resolve in her soul and with God that she was placed into the situation not of her making. I sincerely believe that God will reconcile in her heart and soul that she did the right thing.

      1. You bring up a good point, but I think Marty’s point was to slam us because it was 5 years old. It doesn’t matter, though, because it is still a relevant issue.

        1. Not only is it still a relevant issue, but more info. is always a good thing (especially for curious minds–I always want to know more of the details!).

          1. What I find interesting is that in January of 2008, NBC would put this story out, but today it would be completely ignored as they follow the lead of Obama’s White House.

            It shows how far they have fallen in 5 short years.

  15. I am waiting for Barack Hussein Obama’s comments and lessons from Shotgun Joe on how to best handle these situations.

  16. Most of you said what I was thinking, so I won’t try to be more clever. But one thing that’s been on my mind lately is the notion that people end up greatly traumatized because they had to kill in self defense. This is something society keeps programming people with, through the media and entertainment. It doesn’t have to be this way.

    I’m sure it’s a major whack to the brain to know you killed another human. But I promise you, it’s the right response to an attacker. Every time. Only the biggest, strongest, most badass men in the world can afford to “go easy” on a perp. The rest of us must go full-scale “mother bear” on the bad guys (when we can’t run away safely) or we’re taking too big a risk on our family’s behalf that we’ll lose the confrontation.

    Remember that guy who took 5 or seven 9mm shots and kept coming at the lady hiding with her son? That’s reality.

    If you had to kill in self defense, you did the right thing. It isn’t your fault. We have your back.

    1. She’ll have to look at in terms of good and evil with the intruder being the evil. She did what was required, defeated the evil and that’s all. The perp stop being a human the second he began to desire to do harm to another for the purpose of self gratification.

    2. You mentioned my favorite 911 call K-Bob, the mom with the twins hiding from the man with the crowbar! “Shoot him, shoot him again, shoot him!” 5 out of 6 from the revolver hit him in vital organs, yet he was able to go back downstairs, get in the car and drive away. What if he had picked up that crowbar when her gun was empty? Thankfully he didn’t. Funny, haven’t heard if he’s dead yet….he was on life support at our cost I’m sure.

  17. Did she try peeing on herself first? Or vomiting? How about telling him she had an STD? No?

    Good for her. She did EXACTLY the right thing…and who knows how many OTHER women’s lives she may have saved from this dirtbag?

  18. Liberals are Evil and Irrational. They suffer from some kind of severe mental disorder. What sane human being would dream of depriving a woman of the ability to defend herself? Yet that is their goal. In England, a farmer who had been robbed 7 times by the same gang and savagely beaten shot and killed one of his attackers the 8th time. HE was put on trial for murder, for defending his own life in his own home! Liberals are Evil and Irrational. They are the destroyers of civilization and all that’s good. They are the friends of criminals, murderers, rapists, tyrants and dictators.

    1. Absolutely. We all know what the normal response to attackers should be, by those in authority; “You brought this on to yourself. You shouldn’t have done what you did. There are consequences for our actions. What would YOU have done, Mr Attacker, if what you did had been done to you? It’s time you put yourself in your victims’ shoes.
      Would you like it and think justice was served, if you were charged for defending yourself, especially for the 8th time?”.
      The lady that defended herself with a pistol was very lucky she had armed herself. The 911 woman has learned the reality of life one more time. It wasn’t the victims’ first choice to have to shoot the intruder. We can hear the after effects in her emotional voice. As time goes by, she will realize how strong she was, not to be so frightened to have frozen in her attempt to defend herself, and how close it was that she survived. God bless her.

    1. And in the nick of time. She followed her gut, knew she was in danger, knew the police would be minutes away, and learned to operate the life-saving device that she purchased.

  19. You mean she didn’t faint, vomit, or pee herself to ward this douche off? The libs are gonna crucify her…
    way to go, lady!!!!!!

  20. i grew up in Hammond, In. moved out in “76”. only go back to visit relations. police responce time over minutes. i am glad she had the gun

  21. It is sad, that the main steam media, or for that matter, any of the media, doesn’t put this out there. Without that gun, she would of been severely injured, or dead! This gun issue, is one sided, and the truth is not being portrayed in the way it should be. Why do you think, criminals flock to states, with strict gun laws? Because they know that woman and people, that live by the law, can be easily violated. That is the reality, that is the truth! I just wish he had someone, that cared more about law abiding citizen, then they do about criminals. But sadly we don’t~

    1. Bingo, thank you jensenasah, with this line;( I just wish we had someone, that cared more about law abiding citizen, then they do about criminals. But sadly we don’t~), you’ve said what I’ve been thinking for a long time.

      1. The blue state liberals need to be re-educated about the connection between reduced crime rates and gun ownership. I suggest that all of the red states/counties/cities enact open and concealed carry laws and ban gun-free zones thus forcing all of the nut cases and criminals to practice their evil and nefarious deeds in the gun restricted blue states.

  22. Here is a prime example why the right to keep and bear arms should NOT be infringed upon.

    Here is a prime example of one type of gun owner whose name, address and telephone number should not be published by a pansy newspaper editor that is against guns.

    Here is a prime example of why you should have a 30 round magazine if you want one.

    There should be no gun control in this country.

    1. Here is a prime example of why there should be no waiting periods to obtain a firearm, too.

      1. Wait, she should have told the guy to stop being a stalking prick and that would have solved everything. Problem solved the liberal way. sarc/

  23. Good for her !!

    Certainly Joe Biden couldn’t help her

    I wonder if the jerks in WH and other Democrats are aware of these incidents

    Kudos to the 911 operator

  24. o/t but related: Busted. Gabby Giffords’ Husband Spews Anti-Assault Weapon Rhetoric Then Caught Buying an AR-15

          1. He’s trying to say it took only minutes for a background check, but of course he couldn’t pick up the gun for several days. Methinks, he’s being a bit disingenuous.

            1. Being disingenuous is nothing new for him or Gabby. Remember the Judiciary hearing with Ted Cruz when he walked out of the room when there was testimony he didn’t like?

              1. Yeah, I use the word disingenuous when I want to call someone a lying POS. It’s the politically correct way of spitting. 🙂

                1. TheRightScoop posters are VERY good at self-moderating. One thing I like about this site (among many other things, that is).

                2. I see nothing wrong with using the word disingenuous. If it’s the word that fits why would that be considered being Politically Correct. Just because some politicians use it to avoid calling someone a liar on some occasions doesn’t mean it should never be used.

                3. Rather than saying a person is a “lying POS”, I use disingenuous. That’s the politically correct part I’m talking about. The word disingenuous, of course, is not necessarily politically correct, although politicians and pundits use it themselves for the same reason I do.

          1. I agree. He says he bought it for demonstration purposes but it sounds fishy to me. It’s like the Obamas acting like royalty on taxpayers’ dime yet showing contempt for rich people.

            So you have a story like this one of how a woman has the foresight to purchase a gun to protect herself and these hypocrites, as you so aptly put it, not only want to persuade people like her/us NOT to, they themselves go out and buy guns for themselves (Kelly also bought at least one other gun).

  25. I hate the fact that there are evil ba$tards in the world. I hate that there are creeps who prey on women and children. I hate that this woman will have to live with the memory that she killed a guy, even though it’s not her fault. But she’s alive. Thank God she’s alive.
    this was so hard to listen to. damn.

    1. Me too.I hate to appear callous,but she did the taxpayers a favor also.Saved the expense of a court trial and incarceration.

      1. I don’t think you are callous at all, given our judicial system he may well have walked free and clear with a jury of liberals. See it was just a misunderstanding….get where I’m going?

    2. If you believe in God than you know there is good and evil and we are directed to defeat the evil if given the opportunity. Being liberal allows you to escape this basic fact and it runs downhill from there until finally you’re into a group[ that thinks a fetus isn’t human, but a clump of cells like cancer.

  26. This was so nerve-wrecking just LISTENING to the call…I can’t even IMAGINE how terrified she was. I hope she recovers from this trauma…it’s gonna take a long time, and many people NEVER fully recover from taking another life. But that being said…she did AWESOME, and she did EXACTLY what she was supposed to do.

    For what it’s worth, I’m SO PROUD of her, and I wish I could tell her so in person…

    1. I will tell you from personal experience, traumatic stress disorder often times never goes away. I had a near death experience and the TSD is still present. She needs to get counseling and stay indefinitely.

      1. I got that to on a date I’ll never forget 0/20/09. I’ll never recover and neither will anyone else that respects Liberty.

  27. When you need help in seconds,the police will be there in minutes.No more worries miss.You have neutralized the threat.Now you may go about your normal business without fear.Good job.Another scumbag bites the dust.

  28. Well it’s over now sicko. Yet according to liberal idiots she could have saved herself with a whistle. What a crock of stupid. (Love that phrase Scoop!) Thank God she protected herself. Though I can’t imagine the emotional trauma that she is left with now.

    1. Or from the thread a few days back from that Dem lobbyist, just teach the man not to rape her.

      1. If they weren’t so caught up in their own self righteous nonsense, they could listen to what they actually saying and hear how stupid they sound.

        1. The frightening part is that young girls and women may be listening to them and following their advice and be harmed because they were not taught self-defense!

  29. ‘She said, he warned her it’s not over yet!’

    Yeah, well, scumbag. It’s over now. If she had listened to the liberal quacks and tried to talk him out of it, she would be the one lying in the morgue. Her life will indeed never be the same again, but she is alive to tell others what they need to do.

    And, by the way, any other scumbags that want to do this stuff may just think twice before trying it themselves. A persuasive conversation is no match for several persuasive rounds of 9mm, center mass.

      1. Good for you. I tip my hat to you.

        The key point is “responsible” gun ownership. That’s the point the liberals fail to comprehend. Learn the four safety rules (immediately), find a good range with helpful trainers, and go to appropriate conceal-carry classes (if conceal-carry is where you’re headed).

        No one ever wants to use their gun against another person, but safety (both yours and others) is paramount.

        1. “Responsible” is certainly important; however, if the bad guys know there may be gun owners out there who’re not so well versed in weapon handling…they may be a little more hesitant to confront their victims.

          1. That might be true, but listening to this tape (and I commend this woman for actually using the weapon), it sounded to me like she didn’t use it until he was actually on top of her and trying to overpower her. She could very well have been killed by hesitating.

            Responsible gun ownership (and I realize she only bought the gun that very day) requires not only the knowledge of gun usage, but the practice to be able to act quickly and with careful aim.

            It sounds to me like he was shot in the head (which I suspect was a lucky shot), when in reality, she should have put three rounds center mass the moment he entered the room.

            Just my 2 cents worth, however.

            Edit: Personally, I don’t think there should be any gun owner out there who’s not so well versed in weapon handling. It gives us all a bad name and fuels the fire for the liberals.

            1. Personally, I don’t think there should be any gun owner out there who’s not so well versed in weapon handling. It gives us all a bad name and fuels the fire for the liberals.

              Spot on! When I went for training our NRA instructor made it very clear, if you are going to have a loaded gun in the home it is imperative you are (1) properly trained; (2) willing to use it to take another life if your life is in jeopardy.

              My instructor taught me 2 center mass + 1 to the head in case they are wearing body armour.

              1. ‘My instructor taught me 2 center mass + 1 to the head in case they are wearing body armour.’ – OTD

                Yes, a very good point.

              1. Ahhh, you obviously don’t own a gun. It shows. Try to learn what all training courses teach responsible gun owners and then come back. But be sure to get a note from your mommy. Call upstairs. I’m sure she will be willing to bring it down with the cookies and milk.

                Edit: I do appreciate you creating an account just to show your lack of knowledge. It’s refreshing to see you’re capable of something anyway.

              2. You are the reason for a mandatory draft in this country, those with lesser mentality shall serve unarmed and undefended.

              3. Wow. You’ve really shown your hand here, as well as your maturity and street knowledge. And why jump to that language? Adolescence and ignorance usually lead people to say things like that because they have nothing else to offer. And what is so bad about Wyatt? He was a peacekeeper in Kansas. Can you explain what you are trying to say being direct and using good english/grammar?

      2. NRA instructors are everywhere! Classes fill up quickly so start calling to get in one! Many gun shops have instructors you can “rent” for an hour or two and also guns you can rent so you can select the right handgun and learn how to use it with a trained instructor. Be sure to practice and learn to clean it after every time you range shoot.

  30. Good thing she didn’t take Crazy Joe Biden’s advice. The lady did the right thing by buying a handgun. Threat neutralized.
