Armed Citizen: Woman fends off violent home invader

Armed.  Safe.A recently widowed woman was home alone in Phoenix, Ariz. when a man broke into her house through a back door. Once inside, the criminal attacked the woman with that may have been a garden tool. The woman responded by retrieving a gun and shooting the home invader, ending the attack.

Following the incident, Phoenix Police Spokesman Tommy Thompson told a local news outlet, “”I would say that anytime someone is in your house, they’ve assaulted you, broken into your house, and assaulted you, you would say she appears to have been in the right at this point.” (KSAZ, Phoenix, Ariz. 05/06/14)
