(Battle Creek, April 1, 2006, 6:15 p.m.) 24 Hour News 8 was there when an emotional Triegena Green apologized to neighbors for putting them in harm's way.

Green says she had no idea her live in friend, Tyrone Wilson, was a murder suspect. "I did not know this man was no murderer. I would not let no murderer lay over my kids," Green said.

Green says it was she who opened the door when federal marshals came to her Frisbie Avenue home Friday morning, looking to serve Wilson with a warrant. Out of nowhere, she says, Wilson began shooting. "I thought I was dead," Green said.

During a two hour standoff police say Wilson shot a Federal Marshal in the chest, and Battle Creek Swat Team officer, Robert Miller, in the face, before police snipers shot and killed him.

Both officers survived. Green says she and her three daughters fled the house with police when Wilson started shooting.

"He didn't give us time to get off the porch when he was shooting at us," she said.

Green says she only met Wilson a couple of weeks ago and did not know he was wanted for questioning in several Detroit area homicides or that he was a person of interest in the shooting of a former girlfriend.

Green says she's thankful to be alive. "If the U.S. Marshals didn't come, I was done. Me and my kids was dead."

So, this woman was banging this dude for a few weeks, and then wants him to play 'daddy'?

If she had caught a bullet, it would have been deserved.

That's why you shouldn't shack up with someone you just met.

It is ashame Miss Green didn't catch a stray bullet. Her kids would be better off raised by the state.
