Detroit Mom Opens Fire on Home Invaders

February 20, 2014  | 

A Detroit mother opened fire Monday night when three suspects broke into her home, reports WXYZ.

Surveillance cameras caught it all.

The mother tells 7 Action News she "didn't have time to get scared." When she heard the door to her home on Woodrow Wilson being kicked in, she immediately warned the three teenage intruders and then opened fire.

One of the teens dropped a handgun on his way out the door. He then tried to get back inside the house a second time, but was again met with gunfire. Once again, he took off and all three were arrested shortly after the incident by Detroit Police.

Good for you lady. Im glad you're armed and take your safety of you and your family seriously.

Way to go lady. We just need to take her to the range and teach her how to aim. The 2nd Amendment works again. I'm glad she is alright.

Outstanding, way to go mom. Just to bad you missed.

Good for you mom. It's time we all work to stop these brazen thugs. They should get what they deserve.

Capt. Crunch @ 2/21/2014 9:58 AM

Good job Mom, to bad they went to jail instead of the morgue. Like TX, said you just need a little more rang training.

TACDOC @ 2/21/2014 12:19 PM

Good work young lady! If you ever want some tactical training, we'd welcome you with open arms.

John, a Retired Deputy Sh @ 2/21/2014 12:54 PM

Congradulation, You did it wright, it dosent matter weather you hit them or not, you scared them off, protecting your family and possesions.

I hope that she was a law abiding citizen. In my experience very many homes with surveillance cameras are sometimes in the drug business. Hope Im wrong about that but the fact she had cameras and they choose that particular house makes me a bit suspicious. Here in Phx. almost all home invasions are drug related. Once again, hope I am wrong. Either way Im disappointed in her marksmanship!. Even if it was a drug rip off, there should be 3 less drug robbers around. Now we have to pay for the trial. IF she is not a drug dealer and presses charges. But there I go again, jaded retired cop that I am.

Who puts surveillance cameras in their own home? Did she know this was going to happen? Something here is amiss.
