Miranda Kerr: Shooting, Stabbing At Home Leaves Two Hospitalized
Miranda Kerr’s Malibu home was the scene of a shooting and stabbing on Friday. An intruder allegedly tried to gain access to the house after reportedly jumping over a fence surrounding her property. What resulted was the trespasser was shot in the head after stabbing her security guard in the eye.
Although injured, Kerr’s security guard was still able to shoot the intruder, striking the individual in the head. Though both seriously injured, the guard and the trespasser, who were airlifted to a hospital, are in stable condition. Kerr, reports TMZ, was not in her house during the violent encounter.
This is not the first time Kerr has had a problem with an obsessed fan. In 2013, a man named Steven C. Swanson of Cape Cod called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and revealed his murder plot to kill Kerr with two .45-caliber handguns. During the phone call, he referred to Kerr as his “soulmate” and “wife.”
Before Swanson could leave Massachusetts for California, he was arrested by the local police, who found photos of Kerr all over his refrigerator, microwave, and bookshelf. At his arraignment, a doctor noted Swanson suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and hadn’t been taking his medications for months.
So far, Kerr has not commented on the scary encounter at her Malibu home. Gossip Cop will update as soon as more information emerges.
