Armed Homeowner Shoots and Kills Intruder in Person County

Early Sunday morning in the community of Timberlake in Person County, NC, a masked man with a shotgun broke into an occupied home and demanded money.
The homeowner fired his handgun which he kept beside his bed, striking the shotgun, the resulting ricochet struck the intruder,  25 year old Jonathan Ziminack , in the stomach.
Ziminack was transported to the hospital where he subsequently died on the way to emergency surgery.
Person County Sheriff Dewey Jones stated that Ziminack's girlfriend, Alicia Bowling was stopped by patrol deputies and charged with conspiracy to commit first degree burglary .
She is being held in the Person County Jail under a $75,000 bond.
(20 year old Alicia Bowling, is being held in the Person County Jail.
Her boyfriend is being stored at the Morgue.)

They are considering charging her with an additional 2 charges, first degree burglary and attempted armed robbery.
The name of the homeowner has not been released and as of the posting of this article, no charges are expected to be filed against the homeowner.
Yet another example of why being armed and vigilant is so important.
I have always been taught to never go out looking for trouble. But sometimes trouble comes looking for you. In those cases, it would be a good idea to be prepared for such occasions.
