Armed Woman Stops Hatchet Attack On Neighbor

posted on June 20, 2017

Last Tuesday, a Tennessee woman watched a car pull into her neighbor’s driveway. Shortly after, she saw the neighbor’s two young children run out of the house screaming, “He’s got her.”

In a chilling scenario reported by WSMV-TV, William Taylor II entered his ex-wife’s home armed with a hatchet. When the children ran, the neighbor grabbed her gun. She and her husband burst into the home and found Taylor striking his wife. The neighbor fired a warning shot, but when Taylor kept up the assault, she shot the suspect twice before he crashed through a back window to escape.

Investigators found Taylor dead, while the ex-wife was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Making a tragic story more devastating, Taylor was wearing an ankle monitor meant to protect his estranged wife. Months earlier, Taylor was charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping and rape.

“The system failed,” says another neighbor, Michelle Powers. “She (the armed neighbor) stepped up, and she did what she had to do. He would’ve killed her.”
