Female homeowner wounds armed intruder who broke into her home
It started with a man knocking on the door about 12:30 p.m., asking if a particular person was there. The resident said he didn’t know anyone by that name and tried to close the door. But the intruder pushed his way in, put a gun to his head and said, “This is a robbery, give it up.”
A woman in a nearby bedroom heard the commotion and came out with a handgun. She dove on the floor firing at the intruder, who shot back. The woman went back into the bedroom to get another handgun and continued shooting. The intruder was hit several times and fell to the floor yelling, “I’m shot; I’m paralyzed.” . . .
