Grandma Finds Herself Home Alone When Invaders Enter – Then She Opens FIRE! [VIDEO]

A 60 year-old grandmother got the surprise of her life in Katy, Texas. Two thugs that were armed came into her leased home through the open garage door. She ran and got her gun (of course, it’s Texas!) and started shooting at them. She killed one of them and the other fled and jumped the fence. He’s still on the loose, but he may have been wounded as well. Good for her!

A neighbor was quick to praise the woman: “It’s just, you know what, in the state of Texas, if you’re gonna get on somebody’s property, you’re gonna get shot. That’s just the way we are, that’s Texas.” Damn straight. That’s why we have a Second Amendment and this family had sense enough to have guns ready if needed. You don’t just break into someone’s property in Texas without knowing that you could and probably will get blown away. Criminals should know better there.

From Breitbart:

A grandma home alone in the Katy, Texas area opened fire on two home invasion suspects Monday, killing one.
The second suspect ran for his life, jumped a fence and disappeared from sight once the shots rang out.

According to ABC 13, Harris County Sheriff’s deputies say the 60-year-old grandma was at home by herself when two suspects allegedly entered through the garage. Deputy Thomas Gilliland said, “Both were armed with pistols. She confronted both suspects, retrieved a handgun and fired several times at both subjects.”

Gilliland added, “From what we understand, it’s a rental home but there are several people who live in the home. But this morning she was by herself in the house.”

After the grandma stopped shooting, one suspect was dead and one was on the run. Police do not know if the fleeing suspect was shot as well.

The woman was alone when the men came in… it was early in the morning. I imagine her husband was at work. They were probably casing the home waiting for him to leave and figured they could handle one woman. Not so much. Neighbors are now on edge and will be until this invader is caught. Last word is that a police helicopter was searching the area as were officers. They’ll get the guy, he’s just not that smart.

Some neighbors were visibly upset after the encounter. Not at the woman that shot these thugs, but at the criminals themselves. It’s a quiet neighborhood that does not have crime, until now. Of course, you never need a gun, until you do that is. The woman did not know the men which is not surprising. This was a crime of opportunity. Police are saying it’s too early to know if the woman will face charges, but I bet she won’t. It was self-defense straight up and after all, we are talking Texas here.
