911 call released in Loganville home invasion

LOGANVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

CBS Atlanta News has uncovered new details regarding a home invasion in Loganville on Friday.

Walton County investigators said the homeowner involved wasn't the only target and released the chilling 911 call from the incident.

"Melinda, if he opens that door you shoot, you shoot him, you understand?" the victim's husband, Donnie Herman, could be heard saying to his wife on the 911 call.

Donnie Herman called 911 just seconds before a man broke into his home where his wife and two children were hiding in a crawl space.

"She shot him, she's shooting him. She's shooting him, she's shooting him," Donnie Herman said in the call.

Donnie Herman wasn't at home, but he had his wife on one line and the police on another.

Investigators said Paul Slater pried his way into the family's home on Henderson Ridge Lane.

According to authorities, he used a crowbar to bust open three doors inside the home as he chased Melinda Herman and her children.

Herman then shot Slater five times with a .38 caliber handgun.

"Shoot him again, Shoot him," Donnie Herman said over the phone.

Police told CBS Atlanta News that Slater approached another homeowner up the road about 15 minutes prior to the crime.

"He just drove into the driveway as if he knew where he was going and then I saw him drive up and I walked out and asked him what he needed," said homeowner Anita Brown. "He didn't really have any answers. He said he was looking for a coach Williams, who doesn't live anywhere around here."

Investigators said Slater is on a ventilator after being shot and the case is still under investigation.

"We own guns, we keep them, and if (he) would have made it into the house I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing," Brown said.
