Armed Robbery Victim Answers Strange Knock On Door With Deadly Force

James Stewart of Owsley County, Kentucky, said he and his wife were robbed at gunpoint seven years ago — a circumstance he naturally wasn’t planning on repeating.

So when he heard a knock on his front door around 5 a.m. Tuesday, Stewart knew there was a chance that trouble awaited him on the other side — so this time, he brought his pistol with him.

“I just know what happened the other time,” Stewart told WLEX-TV, “and I didn’t want it to happen again.”

It was a woman asking for help, so Stewart opened the door — and sure enough she was joined by a man who pointed a gun directly at Stewart’s head.

“Had his pistol out, looked like a six-inch barrel on it,” Stewart told WLEX.

But this time, there would be no armed robbery.

Stewart said he fired four shots, adding that the man “fell to the ground and never moved.”

Charles Harris, 42, of Booneville, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Stewart also shot the woman at the door, identified as 36-year-old Linda Peters of Booneville. Peters was hit in the arm, ran to a suspected getaway car and the driver took her to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the station said.

Police said the suspected getaway driver, Jamie Farthing, was charged with first-degree robbery.

Kentucky State Police are investigating and told WLEX that Stewart won’t face charges.
