A woman was home with a friend when her son, a convicted felon with a long criminal record, attempted to break into her house. The woman called 9-1-1, but was forced to flee with her friend as he was breaking down the door. The pair retreated to the home of her neighbor, who happens to be a New Hanover County sheriff’s deputy, where the aggressive son continued his chase. The off-duty officer, who was home with her three children, ordered the perpetrator to leave her porch multiple times, but he ignored her demands. He then forcibly advanced into her home and began fighting with the officer. At that point, to protect herself and family, the officer shot the intruder twice. As of this writing, no information was available on the suspect’s condition. However, in addition to his past criminal record, he is facing multiple other charges, including assault on a female, violating a protective order, habitual assault, violating probation and more.   (wect.com, Wilmington, N.C., 2/25/21)
