A mother of two opened fire on a stranger she found hiding in her kid’s bedroom early Sunday in Oregon.
Police say the Portland woman was out with her two children that morning. She saw a man hidden in one of her kid’s bedrooms when they got home.
Already armed with a handgun, she opened fire and shot him.
Authorities said the mother and her children are still in shock.
“This is a complete stranger and she had her two small children with her when she got home, and had a confrontation with the intruder inside her home. Certainly a very scary situation. She is understandably traumatized by what happened as her children and we are going to help her with that side of things, as well,” Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.
The 59-year-old man’s name has not been released.
Officers found the man dead at the scene. Police did not identify him, citing the need to notify his family.
Good job mom. Thanks.
