Armed Woman Stops Home Intruders

A 61-year-old Terrell, Texas, woman used her gun to stop a pair of home invaders, sending one to the hospital.

According to local media reports, the woman was awakened in the the middle of the night by two home intruders. She retrieved her gun and shot one of the intruders, but ran out of bullets before she could get the second one, who then severely beat her up before leaving the home.

Police were able to apprehend the two when one showed up at a nearby medical center seeking treatment for the gunshot wounds. “I hope other women will take note,” the victim told CBS DFW. “I am glad I was able to defend myself.”
