LEXINGTON, KY — A woman in her twenties was shot while attempting to break into the home of a woman in her forties — a total stranger.
The early morning scuffle was a bit of a statistical anomaly.
As WKYT reports:
Police say it happened around 4:45 a.m. at a home on Talisman Road, in the Garden Springs neighborhood off Lane Allen Road. Officials say a woman in her 40s was home alone when a woman in her 20s came banging on her door, eventually breaking through a window. Police say the homeowner fired a shot at the intruder.
The woman was taken to UK Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, and will likely be charged with breaking and entering. Police believe the home was randomly targeted.
Now, as some of the more regular readers here (or on any other news site) can tell you, it’s really not that common for women to commit crimes of this nature, especially alone.
There was a time where I wasn’t sure how much of that discrepancy was perception as opposed to an honest-to-goodness difference in number of arrests.
