FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Police in Fort Worth are investigating a fatal shooting in the 6700 block of Fortune Road. A woman shot and killed a man that is believed to be a home intruder.

According to police, the woman was home alone and heard someone persistently ringing her doorbell and banging on the door at about 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning. The woman called her husband, who was traveling out of town visiting family, and he told her to get the couple’s gun. She did so and dialed 911.

A short time later, police said, the suspect walked into the home through a backdoor and entered the woman’s bedroom. The woman fired the gun and struck the suspect in his torso, all before police arrived on the scene. He was taken to JPS Hospital in Fort Worth where he died.

KRLD’s Jane Slater Reports:


Police are not sure why the man — later identified as 29-year-old James Green of Fort Worth — was in the house or why he was ringing the doorbell, but authorities did not believe that he was a burglar. The name of the female shooter has not been released. She was not arrested.

“I think they just moved in recently,” said neighbor Patty Smith. “So, you don’t know if somebody knew she was home by herself or why they would choose that house. It could have been any of us, really.”
