Texas Woman Shoots And Kills Home Invader, Police Say


A woman in Kaufman County, Texas, shot and killed a home invader who had entered her home, Thursday morning.

The woman reportedly woke up after hearing a man banging on her door, according to The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department. After investigating the noise, she determined that she didn’t recognize the man, deciding not to answer him, CBS DFW reports.

The woman then reports that she heard the man kick in the back door of her house, prompting her to lock herself in her closet and call 911 at approximately 9:45 am, WFAA reports.

She was still on the phone with the 911 operator when the man reportedly entered the house and confronted her in the closet. She then reportedly shot the man in self-defense, killing him, according to local authorities.

The home invader has been identified as 46-year-old Nikusubila N. A. Makwangwala of Dallas, Texas, WFAA reports.

The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department has acknowledged that the woman was only defending herself from an intruder in her home, and there are expected to be no charges, according to CBS DFW.

A woman in a neighboring home, Amanda Baber, said she was still shaking when she talked to CBS DFW.

“I’m like shaking right now,” she said.

“I seriously still can’t believe that this happened. And I heard this morning the helicopters roaring around and I thought it was a little bit weird. But the fact that you told me it happened so close to here, I mean it’s kind of crazy, feels so country, and it’s pretty much the reason we moved here,” she continued.

Baber also said she was happy that her neighbor was able to defend herself in that situation, saying, “Praise God that she had the means to protect herself and that she had the strength to do it,”.

Kaufman County police and Texas Rangers are continuing the investigation for more information, WFAA reports.

  1. I am very glad that the innocent was the survivor and pray she recovers from the emotional ordeal. Often the mere presence of a firearm and a fighting spirit are all that’s needed, but sometimes the fight has to be carried through to the bitter end, as in this story.

    Just remember, this is but one of tens of thousands of legitimate self-defense situations that occur every year despite what the liberal wannabe-masters and their pet media tell us. Remember that the vast majority of “gun crimes” are committed by criminals who illegally obtain, own, carry, and use a firearm in the commission of a violent crime. Never forget that the liberals want us to be disarmed with no ability to protect ourselves or our families or even a stranger being attacked on the street.

    Innocent Lives Matter. And yes, they matter more than those of the violent criminals who seek to take it.
