Woman Saves Her Man in Louisiana

On August 22, 2007, at approximately 6:00 AM, as Nathaniel Evans left his St. Charles Parish home for work, he was accosted by two armed men. Evans was ordered back into his home by the gunmen, who brandished a 38 revolver, a 9 mm and a 40 caliber handgun. Inside the home was Irene Bailey and a five year old child.

Once inside the home, Todd, left Avila, rightEvans and Irene Bailey were forced to the floor at gunpoint, as the home invaders continually demanded "Where is it?". Irene Bailey was forced into the bedroom with her five year old child. At some point, for some reason, Evans was shot by the gunmen in the torso, lacerating his liver. That is when Irene Bailey responded like a cornered cat. She somehow managed to get to a 40 caliber handgun, and she shot both criminals. She shredded one criminal's torso with five rounds, and shot the other criminal in the torso once. Jason Jammal Todd was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:20 a.m. by the coroner. The second criminal, Chris Avila, was lucky. Although injured, he ran like a bunny rabbit, and was found hemorrhaging in a nearby grassy field around 8 a.m. by police.

Jason Todd got personalized toe jewelery at the local morgue.
Chris Avila will be booked with attempted murder and aggravated burglary.
Nathanial Evans is listed in in guarded condition at St. Charles Hospital.
The five year old was not injured.
Irene Bailey will not be charged for righteous self defense.

Certainly self-defense on her part, but I suspect that Evans & Bailey are going to be facing some questions as to just what "it" was that the Goblins were looking for.

Good shooting...looks like she used common sense and went for COM. If she hadn't, it's possible that this family would have ended up like that doctor and his family...who did NOT have the means to defend themselves.

Not that it matters much, but two goblins carrying three pistols? And the story is "somehow managed to get to a 40 caliber".

I'd guess said .40 was probably just owned on less-than-legal standing by the victim. Easy story for the DA is "it was off them".
Probably kept to protect "it" as pointed out by cybrludite.

Regardless of what "it" was that the two intruders were after... or the legal status of the .40 caliber that was used to ventilate the "bad guys"... Nathaniel Evans and Irene Bailey and one five year old child are alive.

In the end, that one fact just might make all the difference in the world. There won't be a St. Charles Parish newspaper headline about a family being brutally murdered with their obits in the paper and how the police are searching for the killers.

I would rather face police scrutiny and answer questioning about where my handgun came from as opposed to the silent alternative.

Dead people can't talk... or enjoy any of life's other joys and benefits. He who lives also wins. Ask Jason Jammal Todd... oops... he can't answer, can he?

Score is: BAD GUYS = 0, GOOD GUYS = 1

Wow, where can I get one of those 40 mm handguns? Must have quite a kick. I bet I can shoot down airliners with it.

Hmmm... aye, I'd have to agree. This wasn't just some "random act of violence."

I always love when the badguys have a "40mm" handgun. Probably pretty useful in an anti-aircraft role, although I imagine the recoil is a bitch.

Sounds like Dumb and Dumber should have studied harder in school instead of majoring in criminality, 'cause they sure didn't learn nothin'!

Don't mess with Mama, Mama's baby, or Mama's man!

Bam!

Xavier,

Check out this story: http://www.startribune.com/462/story/1382651.html

Stories like this are why I've been carrying my Glock whenever I'm cutting the grass, trimming the hedges, reading on the porch, grilling dinner or taking out the trash. If an armed goblin ever shows up on my doorstep, there will be no "going inside to fetch my car keys." There will be no "hiding in the woodpile." There will be no "going to the neighbors for help." If this ever happens to me, the story is going to end right there. Because I'm prepared and I'm not going to let danger get past me towards my family.
