Officials say 32 year old Modesto resident Pearl Fierro was shot by a homeowner after she broke into a home on Blue Gum Avenue Tuesday evening.

Shortly before 8:00pm deputies responded to a home on the 3900 block of Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto for a report of an attempted home invasion robbery. Arriving deputies with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office located a woman in a parked vehicle that had been fatally shot.

Authorities said the intruder tried to force her way into the house through a sliding glass door by using a fire extinguisher. The elderly homeowners began calling neighbors for help and armed themselves with a gun for self defense. The intruder continued to threaten the homeowners despite warnings to keep away. In an act of self defense, the homeowner fired her gun once striking the intruder in the torso. The intruder then forced her way into the homeowner’s vehicle and died inside.

The residents were not injured during the incident, and cooperated with investigators. Authorities said no arrests have been made and believe the incident is an act of self-defense.
