Buzz up!Twitter FarkIt Type Size A A A A 29-year-old woman was fatally shot late Thursday when she entered a home uninvited, the Maryland State Police said Friday.

The shooting of 29-year-old Jessica M. Hollada occurred about 11 p.m. in the first block of Chestnut Drive near Elkton, state police spokesman Greg Shipley said.
He said Hollada knocked on the door of the home where Chris and Lisa Wilkins, both 50, live with their four children. They told police they had never seen her before.
The Wilkins' 12-year-old son answered the door, and Hollada pushed past him, saying, "I can't do this anymore," according to Shipley.
The youth ran upstairs to tell his parents, who came down with a loaded 12-gauge shotgun. They found Hollada in the basement, Shipley said, and Chris Wilkins, armed with a pistol, searched for other intruders while his wife held the shotgun on Hollada.
Shipley said Lisa Wilkins told officers that Hollada grabbed the barrel of the gun and a struggle ensued. The weapon discharged, fatally wounding Hollada.
Cecil County sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call from the Wilkinses, and emergency medical personnel pronounced Hollada dead at the scene.
State police were called in at 12:30 a.m., Shipley said. Troopers questioned each member of the Wilkins family Friday at the North East barracks and allowed them to leave.
He said several people who had seen Hollada earlier Thursday night reported she was acting "strangely" and they were concerned for her welfare. Hollada had been staying in the basement of her aunt's home, which is next door to the scene of the shooting, Shipley said. She also had another address on Stony Chase Drive about a quarter mile away.
He said no charges have been filed and the investigation is continuing.

I also feel for the lady who shot this woman. That is something she will never get over. Everyone is a victim in this case.

Family,
Please rest assured that people making such hurtful posts have already lost. Ignore them. They are not worth your time and energy.

Family, at least you didn't lose anyone. I can't imagine what that girl's family is going through right now. You and your family can spin it however you want but what your cousin did was involuntary manslaughter at it's lowest level.

I fully support the right to bear arms. What I'm saying is although it is our right to protect ourselves and loved ones, this is still a tragic event that will without a doubt leave an impression on the lives of those involved.

Correct, but the intruder(s) should think about this before making a move.

I'm confused but I disagree with the people saying she deserved it. Walking into someone else's house by accident is totally different then breaking in and trying to hurt someone on purpose. Also it was a young woman. There aren't many of those burglarizing homes and killing people just for fun.

So Bob if you were sitting on the couch and someone walked in your door asking for directions you'd just shoot to kill? It's good to know that some people only respect the lives of people they know and everyone else can just be killed. Uou can't just always say 'it was self-defense' That's not a get out of jail free card no matter what state you're in.

I agree with seriously, however; none of us know the facts except the people that where is the house that night, soo all this is just speculation.
