Texas Woman Shoots Home Intruder

A north Harris County, Texas, woman used her legally owned firearm to protect herself from a home intruder on Christmas Day, shooting and wounding a man who tried to break into her apartment.

Deputies told local media that the man was trying to climb in through a window when the woman fired several shots, striking him twice. The thief retreated to a waiting car, and later showed up at Houston Northwest Medical Center seeking treatment for gunshot wounds.

The woman was unharmed, thanks to her quick action.
