Fayette County Homeowner Shoots and Kills Intruder


FAYETTE COUNTY, TN – The shooting happened around 1:00 a.m. in the 400-block of Bellgrove Road off Highway 64 just outside Oakland city limits.

The homeowner, 63 year-old Willie Woods, says he woke up to the sounds of his wife and daughter frantically yelling for him.  A man, they told him, was on their front porch trying to break in through the picture window.

“I ordered him not to come in the house,” says Woods, “and he was standing there on the porch screaming something, I don't know what it was.  And I kept telling him not to come in.”

Woods says his porch light wasn't on and it was hard to see.   But he could tell the guy had something hard in his hand and he kept hitting the window with it.  Woods says he learned later that the intruder was using a rake to pound on the glass.

“I went back and got my gun and came back into the room,” says Woods, “and he broke at me.  He asked me what I was going to do and he broke at me, right through the window.  He walked right through the window and so I shot.  I fired about three shots.”

Investigators say the intruder was hit in the head and died at the scene. Read more
