Tulsa Woman Uses Gun To Chase Away Would-Be Robbers

posted on September 2, 2015

Carmen Smith of Tulsa, Okla., has been a victim of burglary before. That’s why she installed burglary bars and upgraded her alarm system; her fiancé also helped her get a gun. So she was ready when a trio of would-be robbers broke into her house on Monday morning.

“I just heard some ‘bamming’ real hard, you know, and they pried my door open and they knocked the window out, and my first instinct [was] just to go run and go get my gun. It was already loaded,” Smith told News on 6. She saw one of the three intruders advancing on her, “… like he was going to do something to me, harm me …” and opened fire. All three suspects fled the premises immediately and are currently being sought by police.
