Shrewsbury women shot by her own gun
She was shot with her own gun — as she scuffled with a home invader.
That’s what St. Louis County Police are now revealing about last month’s shooting that left a Shrewsbury woman wounded. County police spokesman officer Rick Eckhardt says there is no indication the woman shot herself intentionally — and they say her story is supported by evidence of a forced entry.
“She had a (hand) gun in the bedroom and when awakened by an intruder, she grabs the gun,” Eckhardt said, “She’s being thrown around against the wall and the bed and next thing she knows, she was shot.”
Something tells me she wishes she would have given into his demands instead, as would have been sensible. Silly women, what the hell did she think she needed a gun for anyway? I could never understand this mentality.
So there you have it. If you have a gun for "self-defence" (Yeah, right..) your are more likely to get shot by it yourself.
