Attempted Home Invasion Stopped By North Carolina Woman With Gun

posted on July 15, 2017

While walking through her residence shortly before noon on Thursday, a homeowner was startled to hear someone rattling the knob on her front door. To be safe, she grabbed her pistol, then went to the door.

Standing in the doorway was 29-year-old Bryant Latrelle Martin, who tried to force his way into the house and began struggling with the woman. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Stanford says the homeowner had no choice but to fire at Martin, who then ran from the front porch with a gunshot wound to the chest.

WRAL-TV5 is reporting investigators found Martin dead at the scene after the woman’s son called 911. No charges are likely to be filed, as North Carolina’s “Stand Your Ground" law permits the use of deadly force in self-defense. Carolinians expanded the law in 2011 to include businesses, homes and vehicles.
