A 26-year-old Portsmouth, Va., mother had used her new .40-cal.
pistol at the target range for the first time and ended up relying
on it to defend her family from an assailant the same night. Temesha
Greene was fearful of the increasing crime rate in her community and
had purchased the gun to protect her family. After learning to shoot
the gun at the range, she went to a grocery store later that day
with her boyfriend and her two sons. Upon returning home and while
they were unloading groceries from the car, Greene said a man got
out of a van and approached them in the driveway. Greene and her
boyfriend, Cedric Williams, asked the man who he was but he did not
respond. When Greene saw the man draw a gun, she pulled her handgun
and the two exchanged fire. Williams found cover behind a tree and
told the two boys to duck down. Greene was not injured, but managed
to shoot the gunman, later identified as Emmitt Warren. When the
gunfire subsided, the driver of the van started to leave, but Warren
called out to him to wait. When the van was later located, Warren
was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. He and an
accomplice have been charged with attempted murder and weapons
