Woman shoots intruder at her home in Goldsboro


GOLDSBORO, N.C. — Authorities say a woman will not face charges after shooting an intruder at her home early Thursday morning.

It happened around 4:30 a.m. on Providence Church Road, Goldsboro.

According to WTVD, when 28-year-old Paige Ham heard a noise at the back of her home, she looked outside and saw a lock was missing from a storage building in the backyard.

Ham told her roommate to call 911 then she went outside with a gun to see if anything was stolen.

Deputies say that’s when Christopher Todd Brogden, 28, rushed out of the building towards her.

Ham fired her gun and Brogden was hit.

He was in stable condition at the hospital.

While Ham will not be charged, Brogden faces burglary charges when he gets out of the hospital.
