    EUREKA SPRINGS, N.C. -- An armed intruder confronted with a pregnant Cumberland County mother Tuesday afternoon, allegedly trying to rob her home. The incident ended in a shootout that left the invader dead.

    Detectives say 23-year-old Crystal Strickland -- 9 months pregnant and mother of two small children -- acted in self defense

    "He broke into the apartment, she ran into the back bedroom where there were some children in the apartment to defend them, and when he entered into the bedroom area, shots were fired,” said Debbie Tanner with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.

    Strickland told authorities she did not know the armed man. Her two young girls were taking a nap when the violent encounter happened. The 3-year-old said she wasn't scared.

    "I didn't get hurt," she said.

    Residents in the area said they have noticed a pattern of break-ins -- five in the last month, and most occurring in broad daylight.

    "My house got robbed, the side door got kicked in,” said neighbor Shawn Kilbourne. “They took some small things, including a pistol."

    Kilbourne suspects the recent break-ins are related. He said if an armed man busted through his family's door, he would do the same thing his neighbor did.

    Investigators are still trying to determine the identity of the home intruder. Detectives say while the case is still under investigation, all indications are right now that it was a case of justifiable homicide.

    Unfortunently probably true, their needs to be a law if your injured or killed in the course of committing a crime you have no legal rights to any sort of civil trial.
    Soon some family member will come along "he was a good man who would never hurt anyone he just fell on some hard times, he shouldn't of died over it" :ugh:

    When are they going to figure out that the best way to minimize crime is to put the fear of god into criminals? If they know that they're likely to get shot by the person in the house that they want to break into then they're a lot less likely to do it in the first place.

    that's actually why most break-ins occur during the day, when the majority of ppl are at work.

    She should have just submitted and the nice robber would have just left. Now a innocent man is dead and the children are scarred for life because of some hormone-drunk pregnant wack-a-doo with an assult pistol.




    So that's what it feels like to be a hippie retard. I feel a need to vomit.
