California Man Brutally Shoots Pregnant Burglar And He Does NOT Regret It… And Here's His Excuse As To Why

california man shoots pregnant burglar

Loss of life is awful, not matter the excuse.

An 80-year-old man named Tom Greer from Long Beach, California shot and killed a pregnant burglar who pleaded for her and her baby's life, but was gunned down by Mr. Greer anyway.

Mr. Greer says he found upon entering his home that the woman, Andrea Miller, and her partner Gus Adams, were robbing his house — which had previously been ransacked three times already.

Here's what he said happened when he entered his home:

"When I went in there, they tackled me. Both of them jumped up on top of me."

They broke the 80-year-old's collarbone and went back to trying to pry his safe open. However Mr. Greer was able to go unnoticed into another room to retrieve a gun which he promptly used to open fire on them. He said:

"I come back and they see me with a gun, and they run."

While the man got away, the woman wasn't as fast and while running away tried to reason with the old man. Here's how Mr. Greer described the event:

"She says, 'Don't shoot me, I'm pregnant! I'm going to have a baby!' And I shot her anyway. She was dead. I shot her twice, she best be dead … (The man) had run off and left her."

Although Mr. Greer has never shot or killed anyone in his life, he believes that the killing of the pregnant robber will send a message to her partner. He said:

"I've never in my life shot anybody, killed anybody. I shot her so that's going to leave a message on his mind for the rest of his life."

Legal analyst Royal Oakes is also not sure if Mr. Greer will be charged for his actions. The analyst said:

"Investigators have to look at both sides of this coin. On the one hand a frail man in his 80s is being attacked in his own home by intruders, he has a right to self-defense. On the other hand, he did shoot a person who was trying to get away, so he wasn't in imminent danger himself and the law says you can't shoot somebody under those circumstances."

Seems like it is going to be up to the court to decide Mr. Greer's fate!

We're curious to know what they end up doing.

    he didn't brutally shoot her.. he just shot her. stop making this sound as if she's was the victim…. it was in his house, he had the right to protect himself from ANY INTRUDER - no matter pregnant or even a teenager. it doesn't make it ok to do what she did.. she got what she deserved.

    oh look it's perez the judge jury and executioner. He was an 80 year old man who had been robbed 3 times and this time he was injured with a broken collarbone.

    They beat the crap out of this guy before he shot them. I agree with Jaene. SHe was no victim. If anything she is directly responsible for her death as well as the death of her unborn baby.

    Any robber takes a risk of getting caught and killed. She took the risk, put her unborn child in unmitigated danger and paid for her crime. She got exactly what she deserved and as for the child, this was just another form of abortion…both legal and accepted as part of our law.
    Mom made the choice…that's what pro-choice is.

    and using 'brutally' in your headline is the worst kind of bias…would you say that if she got an abortion???

    Sadly this is our society today. Pregnant woman robbing and beating up an elderly man. She caused her own death by putting her and her baby in the situation. You break into someone's house there's a chance you'll get hurt or killed. If they got away with it, they would just move on to the person to victimize.

    She got what she deserved!?!?!?

    What she deserved was prison, not death.
    She was fleeing and unarmed and begged for
    Her life. He could if told her to stay still until the police arrived but he decided to shoot and kill her in cold blood.

    Re: Danni – Death is a chance you take when you break into someones house and harm them! Let someone come into my house,break my collar bone and burglarize it..If I could get to my gun,I'd do the same thing..she and her partner put themselves and her unborn baby in that situation..that's what happens.

    Perez your a horses ass with the most pathetic agenda imaginable. Its amazing you have a fucking career you ass. The guy used his lawful right to protect his life. We need more of these MEN in this country to uphold our RIGHTS because they are given away at Taco Bell.

    Hey Perez you need to edit your article. The b*tch was not pregnant, She lied, oh no say it not so that a thief lies. I can't believe all your liberal dirtbags that believed what she said. She got what she deserves and her partner was already arrested in long beach and will be charged with her murder since it was in a commission of a felony.

    She was fleeing for her life once she realized he had a gun. These two beat the crap out of an old man and then ran like cowards once they realized he was able to get a gun. And by the way, she was NOT pregnant. She lied. Gee, will wonders never cease.

    Good for him..



  14. 14

    Good for him, if I had not sold all my late husband's guns I would have done the same thing. A man his age needs to be secure in his own home.

    I say, good for him. What kind of a mother would she have been in the first place by robbing and injuring an old man. Good for him!

    Too fucking right! It's an unborn foetus, I really don't see why anyone would care. It's just a jizzy egg with legs, chill out. I would have been more likely to shoot her anyway if I knew she was pregnant, we don't need to be saving future criminals thank you very much. She would have just had to carry out more burglaries anyway too feed its ugly mouth, so he did the world a favour. You can't be sentimental about these things.

    As usual you are an asshole. And she wasn't pregnant the autopsy has shown! She sued that as a smoke screen to stop the guy from shooting her while she ran off with his stuff in her grubby hands. She was shit and now she is dead shit.

    she wasn't even pregnant, she lied because she thought it will show some sympathy but she was wrong.

    People are commenting on her being pregnant. SHE WASN'T PREGNANT. She used it to try to stop him from shooting her (which I do believe the old guy was in the right on this one).

    You have been a "blogger" for YEARS. When are you going to learn how to construct a proper sentence??!?!

    she was NOT pregnant…autopsy showed that…

  23. Melodi says – reply to this

    Further investigation shows that she was NOT PREGNANT. She was just saying that to get away.



  24. 24

    I would have shot her too. Clearly she wasn't ready to be a mother if she's committing crimes. Good riddance. I hope they don't send a 80 year old man to jail.

    It looks like they were repeat offenders seeing as how he was previously robbed three times before. And this time they brutally attacked an unarmed 80 year old senior citizen. They broke his collar bone, etcetera.

    Like people point out, she was lying. And even if she was pregnant that would make her an awful mother for putting her unborn child or children (twins, triplets, etcetera) at risk. And yes taking the life of an unborn child ("abortion") is "legal" (not in God's eyes) but it does not make it okay.

    If you need something that is why it is good to have God in your life. You can ask Him by praying to Him.

    Just think if they had been Christians or considered Christianity, God and God's people could have helped them. Also, maybe if they had sincerely asked this guy and by sincerely I mean some people ask with the intention if you say no they will take from you by force, if they had sincerely asked this guy, in other words, if he did not feel comfortable, they easily gave him the reserved right to say no, if they had sincerely asked him, maybe he would have helped them out before anyone had robbed and especially before anyone had attacked, brutally attacked him. You never know. And if he said no, they could have asked other people. I mean whatever. That woman is in hell now. It was not worth it.

    Stupid and sad situation.

    He's EIGHTY years old. He was already beaten ,injured and in fear for his life, & they could have come back and overpowered him gun or no gun. Self defense. I can see how a trained officer might have the judgement to hold back on shooting a runner, but an inexperienced person in fear does not have that judgement and continues protecting until they feel safe. They chose to be in his home to perpetrate a criminal act against HIM. He was a victim who fought back.

    You need to do better research. it has been discovered she was NOT pregnant.

    if it's proven he said that, and that she was no longer a threat at that moment, then that's not self defense anymore, that's murder. get ready to go to jail grandpa…

    First of all, she robbed and viciously beat an 80 year old man with her boyfriend. 2 young people on one unarmed (at the time) elderly man. Secondly, she LIED when she said she was pregnant. Thirdly, when you rob and viciously beat someone you should fully expect to get shot. Too bad. No sympathy for her.
