Chalk another one up for private firearm ownership. An alleged home intruder was undressed in a 12-year-old’s bedroom before being driven off by multiple shots from a firearm, residents of the home claim.
Donald Oliver, 38, was in a wheelchair for his court appearance earlier this week, a day after he was shot while allegedly breaking into the home of Tina Burton in Louisville, Kentucky early Sunday morning, according to court documents.
“He got undressed in my daughter’s room,” Burton told local outlet WDRB. “Like, what was your intentions? … You are sick.”
But even with an undressed, grown man in her bedroom, Burton says that her daughter kept it together and did everything right.
“She hid under the cover, turned her light down, turned her volume down on her phone to text me,” Burton said. “When she peeked under the cover to see where he was at, she got up and ran away. She went to the back room. And I think that was really brave and smart of her.” Burton also says that two more of her daughters were at home at the time.
Burton’s boyfriend, Ali Bracey, said that he told Oliver to leave before a fight ensued between the two. Police then say that Burton grabbed a gun and gave it to Bracey who says he fired a total of six shots at the intruder who then ran away.

Oliver was apparently a neighbor that nobody in the home had ever met before, and local law enforcement says that he entered the residence through the kitchen window while wearing only his underwear. They also say they found a bag of heroin where he took his clothes off.
Oliver has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, burglary and assault. His bail is set at $50,000.
