A Virginian homeowner shot a woman last week when she broke into his house stark naked and attacked him with a frying pan, say authorities.
Police arrived on the scene that night to discover the woman, 35-year-old Paula Locklear, with a gunshot wound to the leg. After investigating the incident further, they “determined that the shooting was the result of a breaking and entering.”
According to the New York Post and other sources, the homeowner heard a noise, and upon entering his kitchen, found “an unclothed female” who began hitting him with his own cast-iron pan.

The victim successfully locked her out on the back porch but authorities say that Locklear then found the electrical breaker and turned off the electricity to the house.
She began to beat on the window, yelling that the homeowner had better “get out of his house or she would kill him”.
When Locklear resumed beating on the door that she had originally entered through, the homeowner was forced to fire a shot, hitting her in the leg.
The homeowner is not currently being charged, says Fox News, with authorities deeming it a self-defense shooting.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office stated that Locklear is being charged with “breaking and entering with a weapon, assault and battery, and damage of property.”
Locklear was brought by officials to a hospital to be treated for her wound before being incarcerated in the county jail.
The homeowner made a tough call but ultimately it comes down to self-defense and he was lucky to have been prepared for any situation.

Umm, That’s a guy.
Another methed up democrat doing democrat things, they really are an unstable bunch.
Since she looks like a crackhead, slipping away into oblivion and rotting on her feet, I would have saved everyone a lot of trouble and put one in her head! This homeowner is more merciful than me.
The most important question is: Why did she do it?
As for “what would I do”…. depends.
Was I nekkid, too? (Well, like every man reading this, I’ve done worse. You know what I mean, don’tcha?!?!?)
Could I get the pan away from her without shooting?
Lots of “What ifs” with a weird story like this….
The big question was, …………. who did she support in the 2016 and 2020 elections? That would explain a lot.
Maybe she wanted a little “action” and he was unwilling.
I cant believe youse guys. Didnt your Dads ever learned you how to handle a violent naked woman wielding a frying pan? All ya gotta do is toss a credit card on the floor and when she goes to grab it….well the world is your oyster.
Sounds like the makings for a country song…….the day my neighbor came over naked with a frying pan in hand……..
Me thinks there is more to this story than revealed, as in the homeowner and the BNL were somehow acquainted with each other, LOL.
Any photographic evidence from the kitchen while this was happening? You know…for analysis purposes.
Another insane Democrat.
In my younger days, I might have paid for that experience in the kitchen!
Pretty good looking gal; somewhere in my youth I must have dated her mother 😉
Now that I am old I would have had to shoot her 🙁
More and more I’m learning that woman=crazy….
Pretty good looking gal…. Your standards must be really low.
Sounds like this person has some deep-seated psychological problems, hopefully she can be helped. If she comes to her senses, I hope she realizes how close she came to being a statistic on a police blotter. And to the person that commented; ‘why didn’t they just shoot the frying pan out of her hand?’ Do you realize just how stupid that sounds? Maybe you’ve watched one too many ‘westerns’.
I don’t know if I believe this story. Is it possible she was with the man, and she got mad at him, and he concocted the story about her breaking in?
In my state (NY), there is no castle doctrine. If you’re elderly, frail, confined to a wheel chair, on oxygen and living upstairs and thugs break into the house and go at you with knives you are expected to run away, even if it means going out an upstairs window and landing in the back yard in a heap of broken bones. Otherwise you could be charged with assault or murder, arrested and your gun taken away. More likely than not you can’t obtain a license for the handgun anyway. You pay a $200 fee to apply. They send your fingerprints to the FBI. You wait a year to find out you’ve been rejected, and you’re denied the reason or your money back. Even if you get the license, it will now expire after only 3 years. Very few places to buy ammo anymore. You will have to order online, have it shipped to an FFL, and pay the FFL $40 or more for each shipment for a “background check”..
if you’re in that bad a shape, go ahead and kill the invaders. you’ll get “life in prison” and all your meals, medical, dental, and rehabilitative treatment is now FREE. Most wheelchair invalids inside aren’t bothered, and in fact have a pretty decent life.
Yeah well maybe he shoulda shot her earlier but as a paramedic I attended a victim who was brained by his PO’d Drunk wife with a cast iron frying pan. Darn near killed him…the one above looks a little psycho to me. She went to the local lockup…looks like a Booby bin type to me
I agree with her being a candidate for the Booby bin. She has that 1,000 credit card stare.
No I would not have shot I would have used my training on her. I first would give a verbal comand to put the frying pan down and get on her knees with her hands behind her head. if that did not work I would have gave her a quick titty twist put her in a Brazilian buttocks hump until she submits. I would remain in that position until the authorities came
If people would just do things your way think how many lives would be saved. 👍
They really ought to ban assault frying pans… especially those scary black ones!
LOL!! Yep. Along with those high capacity pans!
Leat she coulda done was make him a sandwich first🤷♂️
In Texas we shoot center mass
I wouldn’t have shot her but I would have given er’ a shot. Looks like she’d clean up nice
Then you’d need a shot at the free clinic. No thanks. Don’t need nasty diseases.
well Lets start by saying if this home owner had taken out his man bun and put on a pair of Pants he could have taken that frying pan away from her and carried her out the front door and told her to go home. there is no reason to shoot the lady that is outside of your house banging on the door, just call the police to bring a Straight jacket because this lady is obviously deranged. we have far to many Soy Boys in this country and to many Soy Boys in the Police Departments that shoot people for holding things that can be easily taken from them, like a stick, knife, bat, phone Etc. unless the perp is holding something that goes Bang just take it away from them. YES I have guns and other so called weapons.
what’s a ‘soy boy’ ??
It would appear to be one of the few things
capitalized in his rant .
@zig: A current generic term for a non-masculine male who physical attributes extend to plugging in the correct cable for his gaming platform. (Has to drink soy milk ‘cause either he can’t handle cow’s milk or it oppresses bovine-Americans.) 8>)
One weird story. Anyway, that shoot is on shaky legal ground, imo. The time to have shot her would have been in the kitchen as she was attacking him with the pan, not after he locked her out of the house. Amazed he wasn’t charged, but it ain’t over, yet.
OK now I understand why and how this happened…. the place says it all Carroll County, Maryland
You didn’t read carefully enough. After he locked other out, she re-entered the house the same way she got in the first time. That is when he shot her. Totally legit shooting.
Nope. You didn’t read it carefully enough. It says she resumed beating on the door that she had originally entered through. She did not re-enter the house.
Where did you go to law school?
He didn’t . He’s a know-it-all , barrack room barrister .
Naked lady with frying pan…hmmmm. Send her over.
There’s a terrific joke somewhere in “Bare-Naked Lady Wielding Frying Pan Shot By Virginia Homeowner”, but a frying pan, being cast iron is no joke. Not disclosed how they compare in stature, a couple hits could be serious.
She shut off power, naked or not, certainly heightened the adversity.
She got off lucky, taking one in the leg.
IDK, unless the owner was physically impaired in some way, age or whatever, I think he should have taken the pan away, shoved this goofball back out the door and called the police. A six second episode.
I’m all for 2A rights but a little balance is a good thing, too. He had the right to do what he did, but that doesn’t make it right. At least he shot her in the leg, that shows some restraint.
I think your mentality is correct out in public 99% of the time.
However, if someone breaches my house through locked doors with a weapon attempting to
do me or my family harm, all bets are definitively off. That doesn’t mean I have a zest for blood or am excited to kill another human being…but my home (or yours, or anyone’s) is not a place where that kind of behavior warrants se-escalation, A frying pan could
easily crack/crush a skull and kill
someone. Swinging one at another person leaves no doubt as to intent. I can’t think of a situation that’s worse, maybe the same assailant but instead of a frying pan, a gun. This
is castle doctrine 101.
I would have thrown some raw meat at her, her natural instincts would have kicked in and she would have made her way to the kitchen with that pan and cooked it up for me.
She was probably a vegan!
Glad he didn’t tap her given the situation… Good choice…This is like Glenn Close and Michael Douglas in “Terms of Endearment”… The famous line, “I won’t be ignored”… and she boiled the household rabbit in a pot, and tried to assault him with a kitchen knife.
That was “Fatal Attraction”. Neither of them were even in “Terms Of Endearment”.
Get your facts straight before you make yourself look like even more of an idiot.
I’d give her a quick oil check after disarming and then release her back in to the wild.
And you’d probably have gotten an STD from the crazed meth addict.
I liked “bare, naked ladies’ back in the day. Now I prefer a Mint Julep & finger sandwiches…but yes, I would have shot her, even back in the day because the behaviors demonstrated that her headspace & timing are off; making her unstable & unpredictable…
As we have learned from observing (the few) attractive Lib women: a pretty face can hide an evil (or sick) mind.
A hit to the head with a cast iron frying pan & she could have killed the homeowner, or incapacitated them before killing them.
Why didn’t he just shoot the frying pan out of her hand?
Why didn’t he just shoot the frying pan out of her hand?
I’d definitely unload on her 😏
” BARE NAKED LADIES ” … and that use to be such a GOOD BAND !!!
Guy needs a pan safe or handle locks so criminals won’t use his kitchenware to commit crimes!
Assault Pans should be banned! They are all “weapons of culinary war.”
