Security video recorded a hail of gunfire outside a north St. Louis County home that left one woman dead. The woman was shot by the resident of a home police said she was trying to rob.
Police said Shabria Furlow, 23, was one of several people “attempting to commit a robbery/home invasion” at a residence located in the 300 block of Lancashire Road at about 3:20 a.m. Tuesday.
In the video, you can see someone turn around in a yard and start shooting at someone who then returns fire. Furlow was killed as bullets ripped through the home. Numerous bullet holes could be seen in the home and the glass on one door was shattered.
The security footage has been turned over to detectives.
On January 11, 2022, at approximately 3:23 AM, St. Louis County Police officers from the North County Precinct responded to a call for service for a shooting in the 300 block of Lancashire Road. Responding officers located 23yr old Shabria Furlow,, suffering from at least one gunshot wound.
Furlow was pronounced deceased on the scene.
Authorities say that the homeowner was justified in killing Furlow because it was “just legitimate self-defense,” according to Christopher King, a spokesman for the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney’s office. “She shows up with a number of armed males,” King said. Furlow was allegedly caught on a home camera nearby approaching the home with four men. The owner who confirmed that he is a proud supporter of the second amendment said that he made the only rational decision that was available!
Two of them carrying guns, King said. The men have not been caught as of yet. Please contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 636-529-8210 to speak to investigators if you have any information regarding the incident”
