A mother of two in Louisiana shot and killed a home intruder who was armed with a shovel and lug wrench.

According to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, one man is dead following a home invasion at a Hammond, Louisiana, residence, which occurred in the early morning hours of January 8, 2023.

Chief Jimmy Travis says deputies responded to reports of shots fired at a residence on Klein Road shortly after 5:00 AM on Sunday.

During the course of the investigation, detectives were able to determine the suspect, later identified as 51-year-old Robert Rheams of Hammond, was armed with a shovel and a lug wrench when he forced entry into the home of the victim and her two young children.

During the incident, a physical altercation took place between Rheams and the homeowner, which ultimately led to Rheams being shot by the homeowner.

Rheams was later pronounced deceased on the scene by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner’s Office.

At the time of the incident, Rheams was out on parole after serving approximately 20 years in prison for armed robbery. Detectives have also been able to tie Rheams to a carjacking that occurred hours prior to the home invasion.

Chief Travis said that no arrests were made in this investigation.
