If Samuel Jeter looks rather uncomfortable in the mug shot above, there’s a good reason for that. He “…remains behind bars after being shot four times in his buttocks while police say he was trying to rob a woman in her home,” last week.
It must have been terrifying for Katrina Walker and her kids.
When (police) arrived at the home, police said a woman was crying on the front porch and another was holding a 9mm Taurus handgun. Police said three children were also inside the home.
According to the incident report, one of the women told police she was in her bedroom on the phone while everyone else was asleep. The victim said she saw a “black figure” open the door to the room and peep his head in before closing the door again.
When Ms. Walker heard her daughter scream, she grabbed a 9mm Taurus handgun and opened fire on the home invader.
Police later found Jeter unconscious in a neighbor’s yard with four new orifices.
He was arrested and transported to the hospital for medical treatment and later transferred to the Spartanburg County Detention Center on a first-degree burglary charge.

Our friends in the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex love to preach that women are in greater danger when there are firearms in the house. Somehow they always manage to leave out the statistic that there are anywhere from two to seven times as many defensive gun uses in America every year than there are deaths from gunfire.
We think Ms. Walker and her three daughters are awfully thankful that there was a gun in their house last week.
