80-year-old California homeowner kills burglar claiming to be pregnant

By Jennifer Griswold. CREATED Jul 25, 2014

Long Beach, CA - An 80-year-old California man said a burglar told him not to shoot as she fled his home. She claimed she was pregnant. An autopsy shows that was not true.

Police say 28-year-old Andrea Miller and 26-year-old Gus Adams surprised 80-year-old Tom Greer in his home Tuesday, and they broke his collarbone in an assault. 

Greer told a media outlet that Miller told her not to shoot because she was pregnant. He shot her in the back twice as she fled the home down an alley. 

Police are asking for burglary and murder charges against Gus Adams. Prosecutors are reviewing the case. 

It is not known if they will charge Greer.
