“A woman in Clearwater, Florida, shot and killed an intruder who broke into her bedroom Tuesday while she was sleeping. The Clearwater Police Department reported the woman called 911 around 8:49 a.m. to report the break-in. She was in the middle of a struggle with the intruder, identified as 26-year-old Justin William Wright, during the call with the dispatcher. Investigators would later find injuries on the woman consistent with a struggle. As the encounter ensued, the woman grabbed her gun and shot the intruder once. He died moments later. Clearwater Police Chief Dan Slaughter said there was no reason to believe this was anything other than an act of self-defense in a subsequent press conference.” (06/21/22)
