Montana: Woman shoots would-be robbers: "Banda died after being shot in the head, shoulder and stomach near a residence at 515 S. 35th St. Statements from the 24-year-old woman and the 15-year-old indicate that Banda and the 15-year-old were walking down an alley near the woman's home at 2:40 a.m. Saturday. The 15-year-old told police that he and Banda were going to break into a vehicle, a Chevy Tahoe, on the woman's property. The woman claims that the two men were walking down the alley yelling profanities and that she felt threatened by them. Shortly after that, both victims were shot. The woman apparently used a semi-automatic pistol. One of the men was armed with a semi-automatic rifle. Police are still unclear on whether Banda or the 15-year-old used the rifle, or who fired the first shot. According to court records, Banda had a criminal history involving partner-family member assault, misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor theft and criminal trespassing to a vehicle in Billings Municipal Court."
