A Clearwater woman used her 2nd Amendment rights to protect herself when a man broke into her bedroom and attacked her Tuesday morning.
Here’s what happened… She woke up to find Justin William Wright, 26, in her bedroom just before he attacked her. Wright was actually one of her neighbors down the street from her house.
Clearwater Police Chief Daniel Slaughter said, “She was able to reach out and call 911 during this attack, but the attack persisted. At which time, she was able to retrieve a gun that she had lawfully.”
Luckily, she was able to grab her gun and fatally shot him in self-defense. Slaughter said the woman had several injuries that go along with her self-defense situation.
Police Chief Daniel Slaughter continued, “We certainly don’t just chalk it up to self defense and move on,” he said. “There is an awful lot of work that has to occur. The crime scene is going to be investigated just like any other death or murder or homicide or as in this particular case, potentially a justified homicide.”
