Armed 73-Year-Old Woman Stood Her Ground Against Intruder: ‘Get Out Now While You’re Still Alive!’

Criminals often prey on the elderly–but in this case, they messed with the wrong woman. A 73-year-old sent a home invader fleeing with a gunshot wound, telling him to “get out now–while you’re still alive!” The incident was caught on tape.


The woman, who hasn’t been identified, says she heard someone knocking at her door at around 9:45 p.m. on August 3. She didn’t answer and a few moments later, she heard the sound of glass shattering, confirming her fears that an intruder was trying to get into her home.The woman, who was home alone at the time, then retrieved her handgun and called 911. After a period of silence, apparent gunshots ring out and unintelligible screaming can be heard in the audio. “Get out of my home!” the woman screams at the intruder. “Get out now – while you’re still alive!”

“OK, I’ll get out,” the intruder responds, seemingly terrified. “I’m getting out.”

Guns, the great equalizer.
