Durban home owner kills 'burglar'


April 29 2008 at 01:57PM


A Durban resident in Umbilo shot dead a burglar on Tuesday, police said.


Inspector Michael Read said the resident was also a police officer at the
Durban organised crime unit.


He said the woman was heard dogs barking at 5.30am.


"She went to investigate and found that someone had broken into the
storeroom and the suspect was still inside," said Read.


The man fired shots at the resident and she returned fire.


Read said the intruder was hit in the neck and died at the scene.


Police found a firearm near the body and an inquest docket had been opened.


Police said they doubted if the resident would be charged as she had acted
in self-defence. - Sapa

Strange how most people do get charged... think the fact that she's a police officer makes a difference?
