A woman shot and killed one of two men who forced their way into the house at 2404 Finchley Drive, near the intersection of Eastway Drive and Shamrock Road, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. The incident took place around 9:30 a.m.
One thing to note here folks--the time of day. This wasn't at night, it wasn't in the evening, it was at 9:30 AM. Most home invasions I see are in the evening or at night. I don't know if it means things are getting worse or it means nothing at all.
But it sure tells me that I need to be on my guard all the time. It's easy to let it slip a bit during the daylight hours, because "everyone knows" that the buys guys do their dirty work at night.
As I found out when my house was broken into and as this lady found out, it ain't necessarily so.
