Illinois Self-Defense Shooting-Mother Shoots 1 of 2 Homeless Home Invaders Who Kicked in Her Door :: 09/04/2014
CRYSTAL LAKE, ILLINOIS - A mother was forced to defend herself, her children and her home when two homeless men, identified as Nicholas Porcayo and Nicholas Porcayo kicked in her door.
Fortunately, the woman was able to arm herself with a .25 caliber handgun and stop the threat.
According to the Northwest Herald,
She had been asleep when a ruckus [bonus points to the local media for using the word ruckus in a news report] and people shouting woke her up, Zinke said. Her teenage children had locked two men out of the house, but they kicked the door down. The two men were unarmed.
The woman warned them and asked them to leave, Zinke said. She shot one when they ignored her and kept advancing on her.
"The mother deserves a lot of credit," Zinke said. "She was dealing with a violent situation. She was protecting her home and her children with the only means she had. She was incredibly brave and likely prevented any of her children from getting hurt."
The suspect who was shot was treated at an area hospital and is expected to fully recover. Both suspects are being charged with multiple felonies.
