A Virginia homeowner found himself confronting a naked woman armed with a frying pan who he said had broken into his home and had to eventually shoot the woman after she allegedly tried to attack him with the object.
Paula Michelle Locklear, 35, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and would be charged with Felony Breaking and Entering an occupied home while armed with a deadly weapon, Assault and Battery, and Damage Property, according to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said deputies determined that the shooting was the result of a breaking and entering, while detailing the incident in a Facebook post that included Locklear’s mugshot.
“The homeowner, who heard a noise at the rear area of the home, went to the kitchen and observed an unclothed female, who was unknown to the homeowner, coming into the rear door at which time began hitting the homeowner with a cast iron fry pan in the head and hand before getting her out of the house and securing the door,” the post stated. “The female at this time was on the back porch of the home, and began turning all the electrical breakers off to the home and started beating on the kitchen window while yelling at the homeowner to get out of her house or she was going to kill him.
“The female then began beating on the same door in which she had already made entry previously, at which time the homeowner discharged his firearm, striking the female in the lower leg area.”
The sheriff’s office added that after consulting with the county attorney, the shooting was determined to have been justified as self-defense and that no charges will be filed on the homeowner.
As for the reaction online, social media users’ remarks ran the gamut… here’s a quick sampling of some of the responses to the story from Twitter:
