NOPD: N.O. Woman Kills Armed Home Intruder
30-year-old woman shoots Marrero man multiple times after he entered a house in the Carrollton neighborhood
 

The NOPD is investigating the fatal shooting of man they describe as an "armed home intruder."

It happened around 7PM Tuesday at a residence in the 1700 block of Cambronne Street in the Carrollton area.

According to investigators, 21-year-old Melvin Plummer of Marrero entered a house occupied by a 30-year-old woman and her three children and brandished a handgun.  The woman, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun and shot Plummer multiple times.

E-M-S paramedics transported the suspect to a hospital where he later died.  

Police say the investigation is ongoing, but for now they are classifying the shooting as "justifiable."

Re: New Orleans woman defends herself by shooting assailant

Thank  God that this mother of three was able to protect her and her three children.  If this woman did not have a  concealed weapons permit  no telling what could have happened.  This mother and her three chlidren would have become victims of this intruder.  No one thinks  it could ever happen to them but you never know .  Women have to protect themselves and there family.

I commend the lady for having the concealed weapons permit, but you dont need one to protect your home. just a loaded gun ready to shoot.
