Madison County, Mississippi

From WLBT TV, December 1, 2003:
A Madison county woman remains hospitalized after fatally shooting one of two men she says forced their way into her home.

It happened around 11 o'clock Saturday night on Lake Castle Road.

Madison county Sheriff Toby Trowbridge is not releasing the name of the woman but says she was shot in the right side during the attempted robbery.

Circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unclear because deputies have not been able to question the homeowner.

She was unable to give accurate descriptions of the men following the incident.

She is now listed in stable condition at a local hospital.

Trowbridge says the woman was home with her granddaughter, who ran to neighbors for help.


Authorities found the man lying dead on the homeowner's driveway.

His name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

Sheriff Toby Trowbridge says, "One of the two black males pushed his way through the door. He physically assaulted her. She was able to get her hands on a pistol. Shots were fired. Fire was returned. At this time we're not sure exactly who shot first."
