Woman Shoots Intruder With Gun Her Son Gave Her A Week Ago [VIDEO]

A concerned son’s decision to buy his mother a gun just last week out of fear for her safety proved wise Thursday morning.

The woman, a widow who lives alone in a crime-plagued Columbus, Ohio neighborhood, grabbed her gun after a man broke through her front window at around 5 a.m., according to Columbus’ 10TV.

“She was armed and apparently fired multiple shots at him,” Columbus Police Sgt. Dave Sicilia told the news station.

The unnamed suspect had attempted to rob a house across the street. After residents there forced him out of the upstairs window, he broke into the widow’s home through her window.

After the woman shot him, he was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead at around 7 a.m.
