Security System Installed While Stalker Hides under Bed
GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. – A woman having a security system installed to protect her against a man who threatened her life and was stalking her actually found the man hiding under her bed as the security system was being installed.
Metro Police affidavits now paint a clearer picture of the events leading up to the self-defense shooting. According to the report, 52-year-old Tony Joe Gunter (above) and the woman had dated for two years when earlier this month she found out about his "extensive criminal history." The woman broke up with Gunter and instructed him not to return when he allegedly stated "I will kill you, you stupid cunt."
Since that day, the woman says she has changed her locks twice and there were three different occasions where she came home and found signs Gunter had broken in and was there. She also filed for an order of protection against Gunter.
The woman called ADT security to have a system installed on Tuesday and says she was on her cell phone and computer as the ADT rep was installing the system. She says after the installer completed the job, she went to her room to check the connection to her cell phone, but her phone was missing. That is when she noticed Gunter's feet under her bed. She told the ADT installer to call 911 and pulled a gun, shooting Gunter in the left foot as he lay under her bed. She says she instructed Gunter to give back the phone and he threw it out from beneath the bed. She held Gunter at gunpoint until police arrived.
Gunter admitted to police he entered the home and hid under the bed, taking the phone to keep the woman from calling police. The 52-year-old is facing charges for aggravated burglary, stalking, violating a protection order and theft.
