Georgia mom home alone with kids shoots ex-con intruder
A Georgia mother shot an ex-convict six times to protect her and her children after he apparently forced his way into the family’s home.
The mom heard knocks on her front door Friday and assumed it was just a solicitor, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
She told her 9-year-old twins not to answer the door and, when the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at his job and he told her to gather the children and hide.
According to the Journal-Constitution, the father then dialed 911 and his wife, who works from a home office, hid with the children in a crawlspace.
By that time, according to the paper, the intruder had used a crowbar to forcibly enter the home, and made his way to the home office.
“He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater, who has arrests dating to 2008 and was released from jail in August, was still conscious.
“The guy’s face down, crying,” the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again.
While down, the woman and her children ran to a neighbor’s house, and the injured intruder made it out of the home and into his car, the paper reported.
Authorities found Slater a short time later bleeding profusely in a neighbor’s driveway.
“I’m dying. Help me,” he told them, according to Chapman.
Slater was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and is expected to survive, the sheriff said.
The Long Island native, who now lives in Gwinnett County, was released from the Gwinnett jail in late August after serving six months for simple battery and three counts of probation violation. Slater has six other arrests in Gwinnett dating back to 2008, according to jail records.
“My wife’s a hero,” the woman’s husband, Donnie Herman, told Channel 2 Action News in a brief statement. He did not respond to a request for comment from the AJC.“She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do.”
Chapman remarked that one of his deputies, impressed with the woman’s resolve, told the sheriff she had handled her first shooting better than he had.
“That mother’s instinct kicked in,” Chapman said.“You go after a mother’s kids and she’ll find herself capable of doing things she never thought she was capable of.”

Too bad she didn't kill the perp, he'll probably sue her and get some money for his pain and suffering.

Ignore CRASSUS and his multiple personalities. He has the IQ and social skills of a child and is just looking for attention.

Or maybe we should just ignore YOU, since he didn't even COMMENT on this thread.
Good for the mother, but she needs some marksmanship training, or a BIGGER GUN. I would suggest a 12 GAUGE, loaded with at least #4 BUCKSHOT, magnum load if she can handle it. That way, she won't have to be too precise in her aiming.

Agree. Now he will have to go back in to prison and cost the taxpayers a bundle of money for medical care, room, board, etc. Then be let out again in a few months and do it all over again.

Jiggers have a very tiny brain. She had as much of a chance of hitting it as a retard winning a stuffed animal at a carnival.
