Imagine traveling through a place, and having someone break into your hotel room. You had better be carrying or risk not have a happy ending like this does.
A man was shot to death early today at a Homewood hotel.
The shooting happened about 3:40 a.m. at America’s Best Inn and Suites on Summit Parkway, confirmed police spokesman Sgt. Andrew Didcoct. A woman was inside her room, possibly with the door propped open, when a man came in and robbed her at gunpoint.
The woman pulled her own gun and shot the man, police said. The man was pronounced dead on the scene. He was not carrying any identification and his identity had not been released this evening.
Didcoct said the female shooter was taken to police headquarters for questioning. He didn’t say whether she was being jailed overnight according to AL.com.
He said detectives were still processing the scene this afternoon and interviewing witnesses. Detectives are scheduled to meet Monday morning, and Didcoct said more information will be released afterward.
This morning’s slaying is the first in Homewood this year. Homewood only recorded one homicide in 2014.
We congratulate the woman in defending herself from an armed robber with good accuracy, and that she kept a pistol nearby for such an occasion.
