Woman shoots kills bow-and-arrow-armed intruder

An auxiliary Florida Highway Patrol trooper shot and killed her neighbor Monday night after he came into her home armed with a bow and arrow and asked for money.

Sean Harris, 24, of the 4200 block of Lynn Ora Drive was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital, where he died about 9:45 p.m. Monday.

Auxiliary Trooper Tabbatha Nussbaumer was in the shower in her upstairs bathroom when her 9-year-old son told her a man he didn’t recognize was in the house, the Pensacola Police Department said.

When Nussbaumer left her bathroom, Harris was at the bottom of the stairs holding the bow and arrow, police said.

Nussbaumer said Harris asked for money.

In an effort to get Harris out the house, Nussbaumer told him she had money in her truck. As Nussbaumer went out the front door, Harris followed and removed his clothes, police said.

Nussbaumer’s truck was parked on the street. Police said Nussbaumer removed a handgun from the truck, turned around, faced Harris, who was standing a few feet from her, and shot him as he walked toward her, police said.

When police arrived on Lynn Ora Drive, Harris was lying nude in the street. He was shot once in the lower abdomen. An autopsy is set for today.

The Police Department’s investigation into the shooting is continuing.

Something a little more than what is reported was going on, seems to me.
