    A woman in Memphis, Tennessee, answered a knock at her door at around 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday. When she opened the door, she found herself in a potential life-and-death situation.

    The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Nico Carlisle, reportedly forced his way into the residence and pressed a gun to the female homeowner’s neck.

    However, the suspected criminal was seemingly unaware that the woman had retrieved her handgun before she went to investigate the knock at the door. Police say the woman then fired multiple shots at Carlisle in apparent self-defense.

    Responding police officers found the suspect lying down near the front door with multiple gunshot wounds. Carlisle was eventually pronounced dead.

    Police are reportedly still searching for a second man who is believed to be involved in the botched robbery.

    WREG-TV reports that no charges have been filed against the homeowner.

    It was on the Blaze.

    When She Answered the Knock at Her Door, a Man Put a Gun to Her Neck. By the Time He Realized He Made a Huge Mistake, It Was Too Late.

    Carlisle's mother sobbed "he's a good boy who was getting his life together and talking about becoming a dentist. I want this killer arrested and jailed for taking an innocent life."

    In 2006, the Memphis metropolitan area ranked number one in violent crimes for major cities around the U.S according to the FBI's annual crime rankings.[1] In 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2007, the Memphis metropolitan area ranked second most dangerous in the nation among cities with a population over 500,000. It also ranked as most dangerous in 2002.[2] There are approximately 182 gangs in Memphis, Tennessee with 8,400 gang members in the county.[3]

    Crime dynamics[edit]
    In 2004 violent crime in Memphis reached a record low for over a decade, that trend subsequently reversed. In 2005, Memphis was ranked the 4th most dangerous city with a population of 500,000 or higher in the U.S.[4]

    Increase[edit]
    Crime in Memphis increased in 2005, and saw a dramatic rise in the first half of 2006. Nationally, cities follow similar trends, and crime numbers tend to be cyclical. Local experts and criminologists cite gang recruitment as one possible cause of the rise in crime in Memphis, and a reduction of 66% of federal funding to the Memphis Police Department. Between 2004 and 2008, the number of full-time officers in the Memphis Police Department fell by 23.2%.[5]

    In the first half of 2006, robbery of businesses increased 52.5%, robbery of individuals increased 28.5%, and homicide increased 18% over the same period of 2005. The Memphis Police Department has responded with the initiation of Operation Blue C.R.U.S.H. (Crime Reduction Using Statistical History), which targets crime hotspots and repeat offenders.[6]

    Memphis ended 2005 with 154 murders, and 2006 ended with 160. 2007 saw 164 murders, 2008 had 138, and 2009 had 132.

    Who goes up to a stranger's home these days, knocks on the door, unannounced, and expect someone to answer?

    Who answers their doors anymore unless you are expecting someone?

    It's not a matter of where I live, which I love, it's a matter of not wanting to deal with solicitors or the uninvited when I am finally home and trying to decompress.

    I almost always have mine handy nowadays. I live in a very safe neighborhood but you always here those stories that start with "I never thought it would happen here......". Fuck that......people are nuts.
