Alabama Woman forced to shoot intruder to protect herself and children
A Walker County woman was forced to shoot an intruder to protect herself and her children.
It happened Tuesday morning on Sellers Hollow Road in the city of Dora.
Martha Lewis says she immediately called police and woke up her daughters.
Lewis says she gave the intruder several warnings before shooting, but he wouldn’t listen.
Police say Lewis will not be charged, since she was defending herself.
“It wasn’t like, oh can I pull the trigger? It was like when should I shoot? When will he be close enough that I know I won’t miss him? That’s one of the things that was going through my mind,” said Lewis.
