It would be absolutely terrifying to make an unwelcome find inside of your own home, but that’s exactly what a mother of two uncovered inside her home in Portland, Oregon. She made quite the insane discovery inside her home. Making matters worse, she found it inside her kid’s bedroom.
A mother, who wishes to remain anonymous, returned to her apartment with her two kids, ages five and ten years old, when her night took quite a terrifying turn. As she made her way to one of her children’s bedrooms, she quickly realized that she wasn’t alone, and there was an intruder lurking in the corner.
Luckily, she carries a gun and was able to protect her family from harm. She quickly pulled out her handgun and shot at the 59-year-old man, who she had found in her child’s bedroom. The man was pronounced dead at the scene after the Portland Police Department responded to the call. He has not been identified because not all of his family has yet to be notified about the incident.
The police have since announced that the mother has been cooperating with their investigation, and she “will not be arrested,” according to The Gateway Pundit. However, after the investigation is complete, “the case will be presented to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office to determine whether any charges will be filed,” according to WFXT.
“I know when the previous renters were there, there was a lot of mischief,” neighbor Amber Murray recalled. “After they moved out, I think there were a few squatters in and out of there.” However, police are still working to determine why the man was inside the woman’s home, and it has not been confirmed whether he was a squatter as the neighbor suggested.
I can’t even imagine how terrifying it would be to come home and find an unwelcome guest lurking around my house, much less in my child’s room. It just goes to show that we should always be on alert as we never know when danger will present itself. Thankfully, this mother was able to keep her family safe because she carried a firearm – who knows what would have happened if she didn’t.
