Sisters Shoot and Kill Home Intruder

Two Georgia sisters, aged 64 and 75, were attacked by a 40-year-old man identified as Jonathan Green one recent evening around 8:00. He attacked one from behind and choked another. While one of them was being choked, she grabbed her pistol and shot Green three times. He stumbled out the house and died. The other sister sustained a cut to her forehead.

The police showed up after receiving a call about a home break-in in progress. When they showed up, Green was already dead in a pool of blood outside the ladies’ house. The two victims were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Everyone in the neighborhood was happy that the women were armed and were able to defend themselves from the intruder. However, Green’s sister who lives out of state said that she’s on her way down to Georgia, because “what she was told about the story isn’t adding up.” That’s usually the way it is with the family of the suspect, especially when the suspect winds up dead.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has this listed as a homicide, but once the DA looks into the case, they’ll likely rule it a justifiable homicide. Action News Jax reported:

An intruder was shot dead after police say he attacked two sisters in their own home.

Investigators say the two sisters fought back. Deputies said they got a 911 call that there was a burglary happening in the home, but when they got here, they found an unresponsive man lying at the edge of the property.

Deputies say two sisters, ages 64 and 75, living in the home had to fight off an intruder on Tuesday night.

They say a man named Jonathan Shellman Green came into the home and attacked the two women, but they fought back. They said one woman grabbed a gun and fired three shots.

A woman claiming to be Green’s sister sent Action News Jax a picture of him. Neighbors say despite the commotion, they didn’t notice anything wrong until they saw flashing lights.

Nixon tells me, she and one of the sisters grew up together and her friend was protecting herself.

“I’m sorry to hear what happened but we all have to be safe and look out for one another,” Nixon said.

If these women hadn’t had a gun, there’s no telling what would have happened. I’m sure Mr. Green assumed that since they were older women, they’d be prime targets. He had to learn the hard way.
