Armed Dallas Woman Fends Off Intruder

posted on December 22, 2015

As Pamela Miller of Dallas was getting ready for work at around 7:30 a.m., she couldn’t see the man snooping around outside. But moments after she got into the bathtub, she was startled by the sound of the front door splintering and the alarm system going off.

Miller made a short call to her husband before retrieving her firearm from the bedroom, then returned to the bathroom, locked the door and dialed 911. Meanwhile, the home invader was making his way through the house. “I could hear him coming through the living room to the bedroom, and he kicked the bedroom door in,” Miller told WFAA. When she heard him kick the bathroom door seconds later, she fired a single shot, prompting the suspect to flee. 

Miller said, had the suspect not been deterred, she was prepared to keep shooting. “If he was coming in, I was going to clear the magazine and protect myself,” she said.
