Minneapolis resident claims she fatally shot man on her property in self-defense

A 53-year-old Minneapolis homeowner has claimed self-defense for fatally shooting a man she said broke into her garage and menaced her and her adult son.

After reading the court filing, Rob Doar, political director of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, said: “The courts have given enhanced protection of one’s dwelling, but outbuildings like detached garages are not considered part of a dwelling.

“If the facts are as the shooter alleges — someone advancing towards your dwelling, making furtive motions, after you’ve shown intent to defend your dwelling — it’s likely self-defense is justified, but we only have the shooter’s word to go on.”
