UPDATE: Loganville Mother Shoots Burglar Several Times

A burglar was shot by a Loganville homeowner Friday morning. She was hiding in an attic space and shot him when he located her.

LOGANVILLE, GA — UPDATE: According to Walton County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Keith Brooks, the young mother shot the burglar after he broke into her Loganville home Friday morning. Brooks said deputies were called in on a report of a burglary in progress. The home was in the Henderson Ridge subdivision off south Sharon Church Road.

"She was aware he was trying to break into the home and took the children and hid in an attic space with them, but he found her," Brooks said, adding that was when she shot him." She then ran to a neighbor with the children and he left in a car.

Brooks said the burglar subsequently wrecked the car in the woods, which is where the deputies found him.

"He was conscious and alert when we got to him," Brooks said, adding they are withholding the name of the burglar for the moment. The Walton Tribune reported that it was a 32-year-old Loganville man and that he was in a critical condition after being shot five times. WSBTV is reporting his name is Paul Slater, of Atlanta, and that he has a record. He also has been listed as a Snellville resident in previous mug shots.

Mr. Albright Jr The perp was NOT trying to flee (going up into the attic where the mother and children were hiding). As for you saying she was not in immediate danger, this POS broke into HER home with a crowbar and when he heard her speaking (she was on the phone), went LOOKING for her. What is your definition of "immediate danger"? Logically, any intruder, uninvited, whom breaks into a home HAS placed the residents in immediate danger! A few days before this happened, I had a similar situation arise at my home at a quarter after midnight. I'm only about 10 miles from where this incident occurred. Only before the POS could break into my home, I turned my dogs on 'em as a warning. I remained inside my home locked and loaded! Castle Doctrine gives me this right. The dogs did their job, but I assure you, if they hadn't scared this waste of human flesh away, and he gained entry, my Glock would have served its' intended purpose. I will not lose my life, nor be harmed from some scumbag.

Mr. Albright Jr. You apparently took my comment the wrong way . I was being a smart A$$ because of something else going on at the time. The only thing I see wrong is the man left the house on his own. He should have been carried out. The lady did a good enough job though as he didn't get far. I am proud of her for standing up to him. Unlike you I have no dogs, but my family knows when they come around they had better make noise so I can hear them or.
