Charlotte Mother Shot in Home Invasion Improving

From by Sarah Hagen, November 4, 2015

New details have emerged about a woman who fought off two intruders during a home invasion.

Semantha Bunce is recovering at CMC and is in stable condition after being shot. Her family says that she has been in and out of consciousness and that she is talking.

“We are making progress, I am able to talk to her,” said Paul Bunce, Semantha’s husband. “She is in and out because she is on medication, and she has severe pain. We have a 4-month-old son, so every couple of hours I am going over there to pump for her.”


At the time of the invasion, the couple’s daughter was at school. Semantha and 4-month-old Bentley were home when the two men kicked down the front door.

“Not a scratch is on him. She brought the matter away from him and definitely protected him. She laid him down in the crib upstairs in our room. He was safe there,” said Paul.

Bunce said that Semantha grabbed her pistol and fired at the men.

“She was in a gunfight in the house — multiple shots going back and forth,” Bunce said.
