Sometimes 911 just isn't fast enough
WEST COVINA, Calif. (AP) - A woman made a 911 call from her suburban mansion to report an attempted break-in, but her pleas were interrupted by gunshots, then silence: She had been shot to death.
The woman told the dispatcher late Wednesday morning that someone was trying to break into her home in upscale West Covina, Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Dan Rosenberg said.
"Deputies heard gunshots followed by silence and an open phone line," he said. . . .
Thanks to Andrew Breitbart and Bob Aldridge for sending me links to this article.
UPDATE: The LA Times reports that this family had taken all sorts of other security protections:
The walled and gated residence also offered far more privacy and security than the ranch-style home they had left just two blocks away. The couple added security cameras. A sign out front read: "Warning: All activities are recorded to aid in the prosecution of any crimes committed against this facility." . . .
