Armed Neighbors Stop Alabama Home Invasion

posted on August 19, 2015

Talk about Southern hospitality. When Alabama resident Wilma Williams awoke to find an unexpected and unwelcome visitor at her door, the 69-year-old raced to get her pistol. Craig Steven Moore, 44, broke into her home and tussled with Williams until wresting the gun from her. Moore shot at her twice and missed before Williams was able to get away and call 911 and a neighbor. 

The neighbor wasted no time—he met up with his nearby father-in-law and the two headed over to help, firearms in hand. After a scuffle, the two men were able to fight off Moore, eventually shooting him non-fatally and holding him until police arrived.

Moore is now facing eight felony charges including attempted murder, attempted assault, burglary and robbery. “She showed me the holes in the wall,” said one neighbor. “There was a big tuft of her hair in the bullet hole. That’s how close he came to killing her.”
