A homeowner shot two burglars earlier this week when she found them in her house.

Police say the Philly woman came home late Sunday night to find four men in her house without an invitation.

ABC 6 tells us that a confrontation ensued. 

At some point during the conflict, the homeowner fired several shots, hitting at least two intruders. All four perps ran from the house at that point.

Not About To Let Burglars Win

According to NBC 10, police arrived at the Germantown home around 1:30 in the morning. They arrived to find the woman outside of her house. 

They identified a man on the ground near her as 48-year-old Jermaine Parker, who was “suffering from gunshot wounds to his right leg and right arm.”

Parker was given medical attention at the scene by first responders. He was then taken to the Einstein Medical Center for treatment.

After more investigation, a second accomplice was found.

“A short time later, police found 45-year-old Randy Miller a few blocks away with a gunshot wound to his back,” we learn from FOX 29. He was taken to the Medical Center as well and the most recent reports stated he was in critical condition.

FOX 29 tells us that investigators did find a weapon as well.


There appears to be no information on whether the other two intruders were injured, and neither has been found.

Authorities are still asking for information if people have any. The two offenders in custody, however, are being given several charges, including burglary.

Police have also stated that the homeowner was acting in self-defense, and will not be charged.

The homeowner told FOX 29 it was a scary event, “Us as women, coming home and having somebody in your house.” She told the interviewer that she didn’t want to become a victim, so she chose to defend herself.

Many of the details from this altercation are still unknown.

But one detail is clear. This homeowner defended herself in the face of a life-threatening situation. She acted on her Second Amendment right as a homeowner to stand up for herself and her home.

    It’s a good thing she’s not an active-duty soldier. She would have to beg the Provost to give her gun back to her, so she could go home and defend herself.
