Default Mom Shoots Daughter's Stalker

Mom shoots armed man who flew around the world to track down her teen daughter
POSTED 8:04 AM, JUNE 26, 2018, BY TRIBUNE MEDIA WIRE


GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. -- The FBI is now investigating after a woman shot a New Zealand man outside her Virginia home Friday afternoon.

Troy Skinner, 25, flew to Virginia to meet the woman's teenage daughter after the two chatted online using Discord, a service popular among gamers, the Goochland County Sheriff said.

The 14-year-old girl's mother shot Skinner when he attempted to break into the family's home in the Holland Hills community, the sheriff said.

"He was not invited here, he was not expected here, he had been told in the past that the daughter no longer wished to communicate with him," Goochland Sheriff Jim Agnew said.

The violent encounter took place Friday when the mother was home with her two daughters.

They heard Skinner banging on the door with a brick, the sheriff said.

When the mother called her husband, he told her to grab a gun.

When Skinner threw a landscaping stone through the glass door, the teenage girl's mother fired twice, hitting Skinner once in the neck.

He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive the shooting.

The sheriff said Skinner first encountered the 14-year-old girl using the Discord chat service.

After three or four months of conversation, the girl attempted to end their communication.

Skinner then flew from New Zealand to Australia, Australia to Los Angeles, and Los Angeles to Washington D.C. From D.C., he took a Greyhound bus to Richmond.

In Richmond he stayed at Hosteling International USA, according to investigators.

When he arrived at the family's home, he yelled that he had hitchhiked 30 miles to the house and needed help.

"This was not random, not spontaneous, this was something very planned," Sheriff Agnew said.

He was carrying a knife, duct tape, and pepper spray -- that he purchased at the Short Pump Walmart -- when he arrived at the family's home.

Skinner has not yet officially been charged with a crime; police continued to investigate Monday evening.

Fortunately this happened in Virginia where firearm ownership is allowed and personal safety is encouraged. Had this been in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or another liberal, progressive democrat state where a "Duty to Retreat" is the law, and firearm ownership is restricted, who knows what the outcome would have been? And if you did use a firearm in those states, even to protect yourself or family, YOU would be led away in handcuffs.....and the perp would be labeled as the victim! SAD, SAD for the people that live in those states.

There are few if any states that require want to retreat from danger vs self defense. Doesn't have to be a stand your ground situation your own home in most states, including NY or Kalif.

That guy might be mentally ill, but chatting with unknown people at 14 could more dangerous than handling guns.
Mother defending her daughter should give proper education first - or at least besides - shooting.

Good for the mom. Sounds like the guy was a real sicko and intended bodily harm. Can you imagine some nut traveling all that way?

Good! Too bad she didn’t put the rabid dog down for good. Hopefully with a neck shot, he’s at least partially paralyzed. Thank you once again 2A.

Default Proof is in the pudding!

Thank our Four Fathers for the 2nd Amendment. Without it this 14 year old girl would be another kidnap statistic, or worse. And thank the parents for realizing the importance of gun ownership. Is it possible the mother and daughters could have stopped this guy, maybe, but not likely.

Now the issue is, how do you deal with people like this, kidnappers, pedophiles, rapists, murderers, thieves, etc. I thinks its clear that prison only works to keep criminals off the street for a period of time and therapy can only do so much, most won't change because of either. So what are the other options?

Since people don't change, those people who believe incarceration or therapy are the answer will never think of other options, and nothing will change. However, removing firearms from law abiding citizens is not the answer. (any bureaucrat that says they believe in the 2nd Amendment but lobbies to create more gun laws are all liars, they are really trying to remove guns form everyone in turn giving power to the government.)

Sorry for the rant - preaching to the choir.

Had this happened in much of CA the woman would probably be prosecuted as the bad guy had not yet entered the residence.

It's very fortunate that they had a firearm and knew how to use it, this is why our Second Amendment rights must be fought for so vigorously, not to mention why more folks ought to be properly educated about firearms rather than spoon-fed anti-gun rhetoric and taught to view firearms as inherently evil instruments of terror/destruction. If more folks had a healthy, unbiased attitude towards firearms, then we'd likely hear a lot most stories with endings such as this.

Hopefully they lock this creep up and throw away the key to insure that he'll never terrorize a young girl and her family ever again.

This was big news around here. It was a righteous shoot, too bad the bullet did not ventilate his brain bucket.

The anti-NRA and anti-firearms crowd have been strangely silent on this one here in VA.

2 females in a house, one a youngster, abusive male outside trying to get in and throwing masonry through the door, clearly an intention to do harm, the girls must have been terrified, deserved all he got plus more.
Then it turns out he's bought rape tape, a knife and pepper spray. Should have been put out of his misery.
But in some ways at least the mother isn't carryng any guilt about taking his life, hopefully he's crippled enough to not be a threat to anybody else.
