GOLDSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA – A 28 year old woman was forced to use a firearm to defend herself early this morning.

Around 4:30am, the woman, identified as Paige Ham, heard a noise in her backyard. She then noticed that the lock on her shed had been removed. That’s when Ham decided to act. According to local media outlets,

Ham had a roommate call 911 and went out with a gun to see if anything was stolen.

That’s when 28-year-old Christopher Todd Brogden allegedly rushed out of the building towards her.

Ham fired her gun, hitting Brogden. He was last reported in stable condition at Vidant Hospital in Greenville.

Brogden is expected to face burglary charges after being released from hospital care.

Ham was not harmed during the encounter and is not expected to face charges.

This is the 46th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of North Carolina and the 1,253rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
