A Charlotte, N.C., woman is being touted by her husband as a hero after fighting off two armed home invaders to protect herself and the couple’s 4-month-old son.
Semantha Bunce was at home with her son when two armed men kicked down her front door. Hearing the ruckus, Bunce put the baby in a crib upstairs away from the intruders, grabbed her gun and confronted the home invaders, trading several shots with them. Hit by gunfire, Bunce nevertheless was able to run off the home invaders and save herself and her young son.
Bunce is recovering at a nearby hospital and is listed in stable condition. “Not a scratch is on him (the baby),” Bunce’s husband, Paul, said later. “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.”
