Florida Mom With Shotgun Sends Home Intruder Scrambling

posted on March 24, 2017

“I will do anything to protect my family.”

That’s what a Miami Gardens, Fla., woman told WPLG Local 10 News after she grabbed a gun to protect her 10-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son from a home invader. Surveillance video shows a man attempting to enter the home—then kicking in the door—which sent the woman running to the bedroom for her gun. As both children were “screaming and crying hysterically,” the intruder suddenly realized he had made a mistake as the woman approached with the shotgun. 

“He was running for his life and kept looking back, making sure I wasn't going to shoot him in the back,” the well-armed mom told the news team, who then asked why she didn’t shoot. “My kids. Not traumatizing them and I did have a baby.” Investigators are still looking for the burglar, who made a hasty getaway in a stolen Mercedes-Benz, which was later found abandoned in Miami.
