Mom Shoots & Kills Home Invader to Protect Her Children

A Louisiana mom has shot and killed a home invader who broke into her family’s home in the dead of the night, according to police.

The woman killed the thug during the early morning hours on Sunday, according to law enforcement officials.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said the unidentified mother shot the suspect to protect her children.

Deputies responded to reports of shots being fired at a residence on Klein Road.

When they arrived, deputies learned the suspect, Robert Rheams, 51, of Hammond, Louisiana allegedly forced his way into the home.

Rheams was armed with a lug wrench and shovel.

Inside the home was a woman and her two young children, a press release from the sheriff’s office stated.

During the break-in, Rheams got into a physical altercation with the woman and was ultimately shot by her.

Police said Rheams was declared dead at the scene by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner’s Office.

Rheams was on parole after being incarcerated for nearly 20 years for armed robbery.

Police also said Rheams was connected to a carjacking that took place just hours before he forced his way into the home on Sunday.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Jimmy Travis said no arrests were made in the investigation.

He also noted that the homeowner exercised her Second Amendment rights to protect herself and her children from a violent home invasion.
