Wife Fatally Shoots Drunken Fool Who Was Fighting Her Husband Outside Couple’s Front Door and Trying to Force His Way into Home. She Got The Gun The Day Before!

The Stanislaus County sheriff’s office reported that a woman from California shot and killed an intoxicated guy who was attempting to break into her and her husband’s home over the weekend while he was fighting them outside the front door.

An attempt was made to force entrance into a house in the 500 block of Ashwood Lane in Patterson, roughly 30 minutes southwest of Modesto, by 22-year-old Angelo Santana, according to the authorities.

According to the sheriff’s office, the house is owned by a 50-year-old woman and her 45-year-old husband. The two men got into a “significant struggle near the threshold of the front-door,” according to the authorities, who cited an examination of external and internal video surveillance footage as well as accounts from witnesses. The husband attempted to physically restrain Santana.

According to the investigators, the wife took a pistol from an upstairs bedroom and “fired all bullets” at Santana. She had just bought the revolver, they added.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Luke Schwartz sent a text message to the Modesto Bee stating, “The battle with the homeowner was a really vicious one.” It’s difficult to fathom how scary it must have been for these people.

What took place next?

According to authorities, patrol officers were sent to the residence at 10:20 p.m. following a report of gunfire. The reporting party later received a call from a female, Mandarin-speaking neighbor claiming to have just shot and killed an intruder.

When police arrived at the house, they discovered an adult male who had died nearby the entryway.

The spouse sparred with Santana while “trying to defend his home,” according to the sheriff’s office, and only received minor physical injuries like scrapes and scratches.

The act was “strictly self-defense,” according to preliminary findings, and the homeowners are fully working with detectives, according to the authorities, who added that no arrests have been made.

Abuse of alcohol in the past

Authorities claimed that Santana had a “history of drinking substance addiction, wherein he would often show-up unexpectedly seeking to find friends and acquaintances of his in the same neighborhood.” Santana was unarmed at the time of the incident, according to the authorities.

Another thing?

Schwartz confirmed to the Bee that there were no children there and that there was no evidence the couple had ever spoken to Santana.
