Police clear resident who
on February 21, 2001
Anthony Ray Krantz - see ya!
Tennessean -- A south Nashville woman was justified in shooting a gun-toting
man who invaded her home Monday night, police said yesterday.
Anthony Ray Krantz, 22, of the 2500 block of
Edge O Lake Drive, was fatally shot by the resident, Rhonda Darlene Hand, 45,
Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said in a news release.
Hand was in the kitchen of her home in the 500
block of Leeanne Drive when Krantz came through an unlocked door to Hand's den,
which adjoins the kitchen, Aaron said.
Hand's weapon was nearby, and she fired five
rounds, Aaron said. Krantz may have fired once, Aaron said, although the
analysis on his gun is not complete.
Police consider the shooting justified because
Krantz was armed when he entered Hand's home, Aaron said. Robbery is believed to
have been the motive for the home invasion, but specific details remain under
