A man dressed as a woman, complete with wig, was shot and killed when he attempted to break into a Georgia homeowner’s house.
Not today lady-man, not today.
This all took place in Dekalb County, just one county over from where I live. The intruder was wearing a wig and even took the time to arch his eyebrows. Why? We may never know. Perhaps he was going to hit up the club after he burglarized the home. Or perhaps he thought he would be harder to identify if he appeared to be a woman.
We may not have all the answers, but what we do know is that people here in Georgia shoot first and ask questions later. Don’t come waltzing up into our homes and think you are going to walk away, because it is very likely you won’t make it back out.
The suspect died at the scene.
According to WSB-TV, the suspect “broke into the house wearing a wig and had arched eyebrows.” DeKalb County Police Lt. Lonzy Robertson said, “The homeowner gave him a warning. The suspect continued to approach him at which time the homeowner fired one shot.” He made clear that the homeowner acted in self-defense and will face no charges.
Robertson said police do not know the identity of the suspect, but are seeking it and asking the community to help them in that regard. Community members said they have seen someone “who dresses like a woman, oftentimes on a bicycle.”
