Parolee Escapes, Gets Shot by Female Homeowner

This homeowner was smart enough to grab her firearm when she got a call that there was an escaped parolee. The escaped parolee was not lucky that he picked her fence to jump over.


Redding resident Jennifer Doolittle received the call, retrieved her handgun, and stepped outside to get her dogs and bring them in the house. As she did this, Carmelo climbed over her fence and allegedly “advanced on her and again acted as if he was reaching for a handgun.”

So Doolittle fired a number of rounds, striking Carmelo and stopping the advance.

Carmelo is back in police custody.  Score one for good guys (or girls) with guns!
