    Brighton neighbor runs to women's aid, shoots and kills attacker

    A Brighton man shot and killed a 44-year-old registered sex offender who attacked two women in their home early this morning, officials said.

    According to Dist. Atty. Gen. Mike Dunavant, David Fleming charged into the home of two women at about 3 a.m.

    Fleming bound the women but one escaped and ran to a nearby home. Dunavant said Fleming, who lived in Munford, intended to rape the women.


    The woman who escaped went to the nearby home of Keith Ingram for help, Dunavant said.

    Ingram, carrying a .40-caliber handgun, ran to the house and found Fleming attacking the other woman, officials said.

    When Fleming tried to attack Ingram, Dunavant said Ingram shot Fleming once.

    Tipton County Sheriff’s deputies and Brighton Police officers found Fleming dead on the front porch of the home.

    Fleming had been convicted of attempted rape in Tipton County. He’s listed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s sex-offender registry.

    Dunavant said Ingram has no criminal record and has a permit to carry the handgun.

    The women who were attacked were treated at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Tipton.

    TBI officials are assisting with the case. The Shelby County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy. Investigators took statements from several witnesses today. The shooting is still under investigation.

    I don't see why they needed a bloodthirsty vigilante neighbor to come shoot that man. The police could have handled the situation just fine :ugh2:

    Another example of why I get so frusted when people endorse gun control and ignore real ways to treat the problem like addressing recidivism and sentencing.

    The better choice would have been to use a less lethal weapon like rubber bullets and bean bags. They have been shown to break bones when used in close quarters, effectively stopping the threat.

    In your mind
    Just like Good old Hellary, who voted that you should have to keep your gun and ammo locked up separately. So that way, when your house gets broken into, and the intruder wants to rape you or a loved one, all you have to do is grab your keys, unlock the two boxes, load the gun, and then try to shoot the guy. But first you have to try to run away :rofl:

    Guns are evil, imagine all the poor innocent air dwelling bacteria he killed, they were living beings whose lives he traded for a human life. Bacteria have rights too damn it.
