Woman shoots multiple times the attacker who broke into her home

Here is a defensive gun use from Highland, Illinois.  From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
A 55-year-old woman shot an intruder multiple times early this morning after the man allegedly pushed his way into her apartment and began assaulting the woman and her sister, according to police. . . . 
The woman told police that the man began to assault her and her 47-year-old sister. She said she pleaded with the man to stop and get out of the apartment. 
"When he failed to comply, she shot him multiple times with a small derringer" pistol, Bell said. 
Bell said the man was shot in the living room area of the apartment. Both women were treated at the scene and released. . . . 
Police confiscated the derringer that Bell referred to as "old school."

Really? This is an outright lie! A derringer is almost always a single shot weapon of a very small caliber. Sometimes it can be a two shot weapon, but either way it is a very, very short range gun.

Hmmmmm, better ban those derringer magazines that exceed 10 rounds!

What a crock!!!

A quick followup to this.

It was not a 'derringer', it was a five shot .22 caliber. A revolver would be my guess.
