SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- A female homeowner who shot a male intruder in her back yard in October 2006 spoke to KNBC's Laurel Erickson on Wednesday, one day after a jury found the man guilty of all charges.

Nadine Teter shot Michael Lugo twice in the stomach and once in the leg after he broke into her Canyon Country home.

Lugo broke the lock on Teter's door and barged in. She fled to the back yard with her gun, according to police.

"He was coming at me. He was yelling. I shot him to stop him," Teter said. "He went down. He got back up. Came back at me. I shot him again. I shot him again, and he turned around and jumped back over the fence. (He) disappeared."

Teter testified against Lugo and his mother, Cynthia Brandon, who drove the getaway car during the Oct. 18, 2006, attack. Both were convicted Tuesday.

While Teter talked to law enforcement that night, Brandon flagged down a deputy heading to Teter. She told him her son was bleeding to death.

"It was terrifying, absolutely terrifying," Teter said.

"Did you have any second thoughts about testifying against him out of fear for yourself?" Erickson asked.


"A little bit, but I knew I had to do it. We needed to get him locked up, put away," Teter said.

Teter said she thinks that every woman should carry a gun.

"Never in a million years, did I think I would use (the gun) -- never. And whatever higher power, whatever gave me the strength to pull that trigger ... You're looking at him or me. My life or his life. I was not going to get raped. I was not going to get murdered. There was no way -- and I didn't," Teter said.

Teter said she was grateful to all the people who helped convict Lugo.

"You know, for something as horrible as this to happen, it could not have ended up any better," Teter said.

Lugo and his mother face sentencing on Feb. 29.

Feb 29th? Doe that mean he only has to do 25% of his sentence?

It wuda been great if Sharon Tate and her friends
had been well armed when the Manson gang came to visit.

I suspect that it wuda been a short visit,
when thay saw the defensive firepower.

Thay got killed for being DEFENSELESS,
and in full compliance with all gun control laws.


Gun control laws = unnecessary death.

I won't even consider a woman unless she's toting at LEAST 2 38's.

Hopefully the deaths of predatory violent criminals,
like the Manson gang.

I guess the Intrepid one believes that Ms. Tate 's party
was better off being UNARMED on the occasion in question.

David, it's only a matter of time that more and more restrictions will be enacted reducing the "gun ownership" rights of all U.S. citizens whether you agree or not.

In Hawaii, if someone breaks into your house and you shoot him or shoot at him, even in self defense, you will go to trial for this offense, not the offender.

There is a lobby working to change this law.

The alternative is to LET THE CRIMINAL KILL U
and however many members of your family as he chooses.


With a government like THAT,
thay are better off with no government at all,
than a partner to the criminal.

I believe that everyone carrying guns is a much more dangerous situation than the random violence that sometimes occurs.

What you advocate is dangerous and yes, foolish.

Only if you give guns to idiots who are afraid to use them. Intrepid, please go cower in the corner and hope the bad guy doesn't shoot you before the police get here, who don't really have an obligation to protect you.

No need to cower. I am not a coward. Guns to idiots? Um, err...nevermind. How the hell many people with guns trying to kill people do you think there are? Must be a U.S. thing. I thought you lived in the land of the brave and the free? You seem to be very afraid.

Apparently Intrepid didn't read the original post. Perhaps it is her irrational fear of inanimate objects - there might be a "gun" in that post!
