"Hero" homeowner fatally shoots escaped inmate who kicked in her door, sheriff says

A South Carolina woman is being hailed as a hero after investigators say she fatally shot an escaped inmate who had kicked in the door of her home as she slept early Tuesday. Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark says the inmate was one of two who escaped the Pickens County Prison as a part of a "premeditated plan" around 2:40 a.m.
Escaped convict breaks into woman's home, arms himself, and advances on her. Presumably not to thank her for her hospitality.

I fully support law enforcement, but police are often minutes away when seconds count.
