KCPD officer on leave after shooting at intruder while off duty in his own home

by: Kathy Quinn
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — Officials placed a Kansas City, Missouri police officer on leave Monday morning as they investigate a shooting near Bales and St. John Avenue.

KCPD Sgt. Jake Becchina said in a news release that around 2:30 a.m. the officer, who was off duty, used his radio to ask for help at his home.

“He told officers he had fired shots at an intruder,” Becchina added.

The off-duty officer told responding officers that he was home alone and walked down the stairs at his home when he heard the sounds of an intruder and found a strange man inside, the news release said.

“Fearing for his safety, he fired multiple shots at the intruder,” Becchina said in the release. “He (the intruder) then ran from the scene.”

Police said they are still looking for the intruder. They are not sure whether any of the shots injured the intruder.

Police: Decatur woman shot father of her child in self-defense

Kennedy Nolen
DECATUR — Police say a Decatur woman shot the 33-year-old father of her child to defend herself after he attacked her while she was in a vehicle Sunday evening.

Sgt. Chris Copeland said officers were sent at 6:50 p.m. to HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital in response to the man having been shot in his right side.

He told police the woman had shot him in front of his home in the 3800 block of East Grand Avenue, Copeland said. Police began their investigation and contacted the 29-year-old woman, who voluntarily came to the Decatur Police Department for questioning.

Copeland said the woman had several injuries to her face from the man battering her while she was inside of her vehicle. She had a shunt in her head from a previous injury, and a blow to the head could be fatal, Copeland said.

Pregnant Florida woman uses AR-15 to fend off burglars attacking her family

By Nicole Darrah
A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home — with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself dodging a bullet.

The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.

Don’t f*** with Mama Bear. I personally liked the “…dead in a ditch…” part.

    Shoot INTO the intruder, not at the intruder.

    Decatur; Notice the abuser is back on the streets with a 10K bond posted, and the abused baby Mama is still in jail with a 75K bond for not having a CCW? daHell? Must be another law passed by the Illinois Nazis…err…legislature.

    Florida woman was last month repeat. As commented before, that location is not far from Baby Daughter’s home. Slim details still, but some investigators think there was another type connection between the perps and victims. Popo ain’t talking.

    Sad to say I grew up in Decatur…much worse than when I was there. The police and legislature have really screwed up this time. Did they arrest her for using a weapon she can legally carry in her car? or for bring it to the Police station in her purse? $75K bond for cooperating with police, but only $10K for repeated domestic abuse! Yeah, I don’t think I will be going home any time soon! Good riddance!
