Late this morning, Odems heard repeated knocking at her door. She looked through the peephole and saw a man she did not know. She grew concerned and retreated to a closet in her bedroom armed with a .357 revolver. As Odems was on the phone with a 911 operator, she heard an intruder inside the apartment. Moments later, she heard the person entering her bedroom. When Odems came face to face with Hartman at her closet door, she fired one time in defense of herself. Hartman ran. Odems was not sure whether she had hit him.
