Pittsburgh, PA — A family is now grieving after a home invasion left their beloved Christopher Mark Thompkins dead. The burglar, however, was not the one to kill Thompkins — the police who responded to the 9-1-1 call did.

“They shot the wrong guy,” said Brenda Thompkins, 51, of Penn Hills.

Early Sunday morning, Brenda and Christopher Thompkins were asleep in bed when they awoke to the sound of an intruder. Brenda, who is a licensed gun owner, handed over her pistol to Thompkins who pursued the would-be attacker through the house.

The couple was upstairs and all Christopher could think about, according to Brenda, was to get downstairs to save his mother.

“He was just saying, ‘My mom, my mom,’” Brenda Thompkins said. “That’s all he was worrying about.”

When Christopher got downstairs, he encountered Juan Brian Jetter-Clark, 23, who had broken into their home. Fearing for he and his mother’s safety, Thompkins opened fire on Jetter-Clark. He missed.

Just as Thompkins was opening fire, however, two patrol officers showed up responding to the family’s burglar alarm. Thinking Thompkins was shooting at them, police opened fire on Thompkins, killing him.

Meanwhile, Brenda was on the phone with 9-1-1, and hiding onto a roof behind the home.

After hearing the gunshots, Brenda said police came up and got her off the roof.
