posted on September 7, 2016

After three men broke into her home Wednesday night and one of them pointed a gun at her husband, a Port Richey, Fla., woman used her firearm to save her husband and put an end to the robbery, the Tampa Bay Times reports

According to Pasco County sheriff’s deputies, one of the invaders had forced the male homeowner to lie on the floor at gunpoint. While the three men stood over the woman’s husband and searched his pocket for a wallet, the woman ran to her room and retrieved a firearm. When she returned to the living room she told the men to freeze, which sent them fleeing toward the door. But, when one of them turned toward her, she fired, hitting him in the shoulder.

Michael Jay Shackelford, 46, who deputies said was in possession of a stolen firearm at the time, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and charged with home invasion robbery with a deadly weapon.
