68-year-old woman shoots suspected burglar 5 times

A man police suspect of being a burglar is recovering after he allegedly lunged at the elderly woman who discovered him in her storage building.

Robeson County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Anthony Thompson told local media that James Dority, 39, of St. Pauls, was discovered by deputies after a call about 6:40 p.m. last Friday in reference to a person being shot.

Authorities say that Dority had been shot five times with a .22-caliber handgun by an unidentified 68-year-old woman after she arrived home to find the man hiding in her storage building and he lunged at her in “an aggressive manner” when confronted.

Dority, who does not have life-threatening injuries, was later reported to have an extensive criminal background to include past charges for possession of burglary tools and felony possession of a stolen vehicle. Thompson said the incident is in the “early stages of the investigation,” and no charges have been filed.
