Naked Woman with a gun...

    Gwinnett Police have released a recording of the 911 call made by a Duluth woman after she shot the knife-wielding intruder who attacked her at home last Wednesday (May 11). Her assailant, identified by police as Israel Perez Puentes, 34, of Alpharetta, died later from the gunshot wounds.

    The incident occurred about 6:30 a.m. when Punetes entered the home in the 2800 block of East Mount Tabor Circle in unincorporated Duluth, as the resident, a 53-year-old woman, was coming out of the shower, according to a Gwinnett Police spokesman. "She was exiting the shower when the man wielding a [kitchen] knife entered her bathroom," said Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter.

    The woman tried to fight off the man with the shower rod after she had fallen into the bathtub. Her attacker then forced her into the bedroom. Puentes apparently was going to sexually assault her, Ritter said. She was able to retrieve her .22-caliber pistol and then shot him multiple times, according to Ritter. Puentes left the house through the rear door and collapsed in the backyard.

    A neighbor to whose home the woman had run after the attack placed the 911 call then put her on the telephone. Sobbing hysterically, she managed to tell the dispatcher about the attack and give her address.

    “I was in the shower and the lights cut out in my house, and a man came in with a hood, and he had a knife in his hand….He told me to be quiet. He told me to get out of the tub, and he tried to force me on(to) the bed,” the woman told the police dispatcher.

    The woman was able to retrieve a .22 caliber pistol that she kept in a nightstand near the bed. “I took my .22, and I shot him as much as I could.” The woman informed the dispatcher she locked the rear sliding glass door after he ran out, and she rushed out the front door to the neighbor’s house. She said she wasn’t sure of his whereabouts.

    Puentes was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville where he later died from his injuries. The woman was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Duluth and was treated for minor injuries, Ritter said. No charges are expected to be filed against the woman. “It was apparently a justified use of deadly force," he said.

    If that happened in my neck of the woods the officers, state attorney, and even the Judge would take up a collection to buy her a better larger caliber pistol and I would give her free shooting lessons with it.

    You know, over the years, I've developed quite the respect for the .22LR. It just seems like once past the skin they go wherever they want to and do much more damage than you'd think possible.

    Better to shoot a smaller caliber well, than a bigger one poorly...

    I thought you were going to say that she had a pair of 38's and also had a gun.

    I have seen many a hard-core thug felled by the lowly .22 LR and .25 ACP. Which is funny, since apparently "you should never shoot someone with a .22 or .25 cuz they'll get mad, take it away from you and beat you to death with it!" :upeyes:

    Good on her!

    We used to give free classes on self defense and shooting with a full day of range time two or three times a year. The classes were always full and typically it was women in their forties and fifties with some in their sixties.

    Most had .22's .25's .32's and an occasional .380 or .38.

    A lot of them found out their cheap little .25's were not reliable.
  8. Yep, looks like a .22 got the job done...I guess it sucks to be him.....:rofl:

    She apparently did just fine with her lowly little 22. ;)

    Sweet. This is just a few miles down the road from my residence. I'm glad he's gone.

    She had 2 other pistols in the house. I'm guessing that's just the one she got to first.

    22L centre mass can do some destructive damage.

    Naked woman with a gun? I hope we can all finally stop bickering and agree that this is one time where Open Carrying is more appropriate than concealed carry.

    Anyone worth shooting once is worth shooting "multiple times."

    Armed with a .22, she did the right thing:

    >> "I shot him as much as I could.”

    Excellent. There are several ladies here at the courthouse who want to go shooting. I've offered to take them on a "range day" just to get a feel for firearms and firearms safety. I am using this article to shore up my reasoning.

    Sounds like pretty sage advice no matter what you're carrying. Kinda makes the 9mm/.40 S&W/.45 ACP debate moot, huh?

    And Ajon, I'd LOVE to be the one to tell this nimrod's homies that a .22 took out their boy! Epic win!
