On Sunday morning, Donald Oliver, Bracey's 38-year-old neighbor, broke into his home and began undressing in the room of his girlfriend's 12-year-old daughter.
When the girl ran out of the room and notified her mother, Tina Burton, the two began to hit Oliver with a broom. Bracey eventually shot Oliver six times before he fled the home. Police later found heroin that Oliver dropped in the girl's bedroom.
"I told him, 'Get out,' and he didn't want to move,"Bracey told WRDB. "And he growled at me. He growled at me. He ended up getting six shots."
The internet heaped praise upon Bracey for his quick thinking and reaction to the entire situation.
A stranger walked into a 12-year-old girl's room wearing no pants. The Louisville homeowner shot the man 6 times. Listen to what the shooter said about it. pic.twitter.com/pNw7Q6C1Rg— Sterling Riggs (@SRiggsWDRB) April 16, 2019
The hero's name is Ali Bracey, and this brother deserves: pic.twitter.com/QClOOHyeFo— Torraine Walker (@TorraineWalker) April 17, 2019
His name is Ali Bracey. You’re mad trash for calling him “shooter”. But if he was white he would’ve been labeled “Good Samaritan”. https://t.co/KXOOLPbzUN— Shawn (@mrsrt392) April 17, 2019
Hero. Great job man.— Brandon (@BrandonJky) April 16, 2019
Some in the comments took issue with how WDRB Morning Anchor Sterling Riggs portrayed the situation, only referring to Bracey as "the shooter" in his tweet about the incident.
He was protecting his daughter and gave the guy warning— Diedrich Bader (@bader_diedrich) April 17, 2019
How is he “the shooter” and not “the hero”?
Why not just continue with homeowner like it was stated or his name? 😐🤔🧐🙄 a stranger walked in their home into their daughter’s room🗣 that person wasn’t only a stranger, they were a trespasser.— Her Best Curve (@RegalSmiles) April 17, 2019
Black people get shot for less.
This is goofy. Wording matters & you know this.
“Louisville home owner protects family from a potential sex offender. He shoots man who walks into a 12yr old girl’s room, pantless, six times. More news at 8.”— X (@XLNB) April 17, 2019
SEE HOW EASY THAT WAS??? pic.twitter.com/SSGGkTsc6h
This is a disgraceful Tweet. How do you identify this man as “the shooter”? He didn’t walk into a school or movie theater. He was protecting his family in his own home.— Stevo Dondarrion (@Notmyown3) April 17, 2019
