Ohio Mother Shoots Home Invader

posted on January 11, 2016

A 23-year-old mother and her young son were at home in Harrison Township, Ohio, when she heard the noise of someone attempting to gain access to her home. She called her boyfriend and alerted him, but as she was on the phone a suspect reportedly began breaking in. She fired several shots at the intruder, who fled the scene and collapsed shortly afterwards. He was hospitalized in critical condition. 

A representative of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office told ABC 22 that the suspect had removed a screen from the window and was entering the home when he was shot. A neighbor of the young mother’s spoke in support of her actions: “If you’re breaking into someone’s house, you know, be aware someone could have a gun at the other side.” The armed mother and her child were both uninjured.
