Tennessee Woman Shoots Dangerous Stalker Hiding Under Her Bed

posted on September 13, 2017

Children know to look under the bed for monsters. For a woman with a stalker, it was good advice as well.

The Goodlettsville, Tenn., woman had dated 52-year-old Tony Joe Gunter for two years when she discovered his “extensive criminal history” and ended the relationship. As she told Gunter to leave, he stated, “I will kill you.” This encounter set off a series of escalating episodes. Three times she came home to discover Gunter hiding inside. She changed the locks twice and filed a protective order. Finally, the woman called ADT to install a security system.

Last Tuesday, when the alarm installer had finished, she went to her bedroom to check the connection to her cell phone and noticed it was missing—and noticed Gunter’s feet under her bed. She grabbed her gun and shot Gunter in the foot, then held him at gunpoint until police arrived. The ex-boyfriend is facing charges of burglary, stalking and violating a protective order.
