Edmonds woman shoots home intruder

A woman at home with her family shot and wounded a man early Thursday as he tried to break into her home in Edmonds, police said.

The 33-year-old woman awoke at about 3:15 a.m. to someone pounding on the front door, in the 16400 block of 75th Avenue West. As she came to the door, a 22-year-old man started to force his way into the house, according to Edmonds police.

The woman called 911 and armed herself with a gun, then struggled with the intruder to keep him from entering, according to the police. As the man continued to force his way in, she fired the gun, striking him in the abdomen.

He was taken into custody and to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was in serious condition Thursday evening, according to a nursing supervisor.

The woman’s husband, children ages 14, 10 and 5, and a 14-year-old friend of the oldest child were also in the home at the time of the incident.

There is no known connection between the family and the suspect, said Sgt. Mark Marsh, spokesman for Edmonds police.
