Elderly Woman, Beaten And Battered, Shoots Robbery Suspect

posted on July 27, 2016

On Sunday, two thugs burst into a Loris, S.C., home, handcuffed the family and began beating the homeowner, 75-year-old Eleanor Ring. But fearing for her life, Eleanor kept her head—and knew where she kept her gun. 

Ring told WMBF News a female suspect began asking for money and pills, while a male suspect repeatedly struck her in the head with a firearm. A 78-year-old neighbor, as well as Ring’s 9-year-old foster daughter and infant great-granddaughter, watched helplessly as the male suspect pushed her to the floor.

That’s when Ring made her way to the bedroom, found her own firearm, turned to the suspects and said, “You want to play with guns?” Ring shot the male suspect before both escaped on foot. The grandmother had also been victimized a year earlier by robbers impersonating police officers. “God was with me,” she said.
