Melany Yancey was home alone when two men wearing bandannas kicked
in her front door and came upstairs about 2:50 a.m. Yancey later
told police that she had locked herself in her bedroom and retrieved
a handgun when she first heard the commotion. The intruders then
attempted to break through the bedroom door. She fired a shot in
their direction, and one man fired back at her. The men then moved
into another bedroom and Yancey took the opportunity to flee her
house, firing two more shots at the invaders as she ran outside. She
was able to call 9-1-1 from a neighbor's home. Police found one of
the suspects lying on the driveway, dead from a gunshot wound to the
abdomen. The other suspect remained at large.
