Georgia Woman Fights Off Home Intruders

posted on April 29, 2016

A Savannah, Ga., woman, fearing for the safety of herself and her teenage daughter, shot at two men who broke into her home early Tuesday. 

According to local press reports, the woman was asleep when she heard someone coming into her house. Thinking it was her firefighter husband returning home from work, she found two intruders, one of whom punched her in the face and pushed her back into her bedroom. 

As the two headed down the hall toward where her teenage daughter was sleeping, the woman grabbed her 12-gauge shotgun, stepped back out into the hall and fired a shot at the intruders, sending them fleeing.

“The only thing I can remember is the guy at the door hollering ‘oh ...’ and running,” the woman told local ABC affiliate WTVM. “And I just fired, like I said, all I could think was it was him or me. And I had to protect my daughter.”
