A woman in Kansas City, Missouri shot and killed a man after he forced his way into her home and sexually assaulted her.
Reports show that the woman, who is in her late 60s, answered a knock at the door from 24-year-old Paul J. Williams. Williams reportedly asked for someone who didn’t live at the woman’s residence and then pushed his way inside. He then forced the woman into a bedroom and sexually assaulted her.
After the sexual assault, the man left the bedroom to head for the kitchen. The woman took that opportunity to grab her revolver, and when the man tried to approach her again, she shot and killed him.
The woman was taken into custody where she was questioned about what happened. She was eventually released from police custody, and William’s death is labeled a homicide. No charges are expected to be filed against the woman, however, as it is clear that she acted in self defense.
William’s reportedly has a criminal record and was just released from prison last year for one burglary conviction and two robbery convictions in 2006 at only 17 years old.
