A naked woman was shot in the leg after allegedly breaking into a home and attacking the homeowner with a frying pan.
Said homeowner did not appear keen on being attacked with a kitchen utensil, and responded by shooting Paula Michelle Locklear, 35, in her leg.
The incident on Loafers Rest Road, Austinville, United States, has since been investigated by officials, with police confirming reports of an "unclothed female" breaking and entering.

Their statement also mentioned the "cast iron frying pan" she was armed with at the time of the break-in, which appears to have been used to beat down the kitchen windows.
Carroll County Sheriff's Office released a statement, which read: "During the course of the investigation, deputies determined that the shooting was the result of a breaking and entering."
They confirmed that the homeowner had grown suspicious after they "who heard a noise at the rear area of the home" and subsequently went to investigate.
The unnamed homeowner "went to the kitchen and observed an unclothed female, who was unknown to the homeowner, coming into the rear door at which time [she] began hitting the homeowner with a cast iron fry pan in the head."
Said victim was eventually able to kick Locklear out of the home, but ended up firing a round into the woman's leg.

Locklear is said to have "began turning all the electrical breakers off to the home and started beating on the kitchen window".
It was later confirmed that she yelled at her victim, telling him to get out of the house or she was "going to kill him", at which point the victim responded with a firearm.
Discharging their weapon and firing a round into the 35-year-old's leg, the stark turn of events has been labelled self-defence.
Subsequently, the homeowner will face no charges, while Locklear will appear in Carroll County General District court on charges of breaking and entering while armed, assault and batter and property damage at an unconfirmed date.
