A California woman fatally shot an intoxicated man who was fighting with her husband outside the couple’s front door as he tried to force his way into their home. 

The heroic wife said that she had only gotten the gun only the day before! 

The local police said it appears 22-year-old Angelo Santana became heavily intoxicated and tried to force entry into a home in the 500 block of Ashwood Lane in Patterson, which is about a half-hour southwest of Modesto.

The house belongs to a 50-year-old woman, and her 45-year-old husband, the sheriff’s office said. The husband tried to physically restrain Santana, and the two men got into a “significant fight near the threshold of the front door,” authorities said, citing a review of external and internal video surveillance footage and statements from witnesses.

The wife got a revolver from the upstairs bedroom and “fired all rounds” into Santana, authorities said, adding that she had acquired the revolver only the day before.

“The fight with the homeowner was a pretty violent one,” sheriff’s Sgt. Luke Schwartz told the Modesto Bee via text. “Can only imagine how terrifying it must’ve been for these folks.”

Patrol deputies were dispatched to the home around 10:20 p.m. after a report of shots fired, authorities said, adding that the reporting party got a phone call from a female, Mandarin-speaking neighbor saying she had just shot and killed an intruder.

Law enforcement arrived at the home and found an unresponsive, deceased adult male near the entryway, authorities said.

The husband suffered minimal physical injuries, including scrapes and scratches, during his fight with Santana, “trying to defend his home,” the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators have made no arrests, authorities said, adding that preliminary findings indicate the incident was “strictly self-defense” and that the homeowners are fully cooperating with detectives.

The local press reported that Santana had an arrest record and a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. There was no indication that the couple had any previous contact with Santana.
