Woman saves sister from robbery and assault, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, Mo. 02/10/13

Sisters Debi Keeney and Donna Carlyle were at home in Highland, Mo. when a man forced his way inside the apartment as Keeney returned from smoking a cigarette outside. The criminal then threw Carlyle to the floor and began choking her and demanding money. Keeney recalled, “All I could see was Donna’s face going blue, like her life was being choked out of her.” In response, Keeney retrieved a .22-caliber pistol and, after a verbal warning, fired at the home invader, striking him twice and ending the attack.
Following the incident, Keeney stated, “I gave him the opportunity to leave. I wish he had left without me having to shoot him… Put in the same situation again, I would do it again.” The sisters’ neighbor, Rodney Rusick, was supportive of Keeney’s actions, telling local media, “I’m proud of her for shooting that dude.”
