According to police, the 63-year-old female homeowner was sleeping in a downstairs bedroom when she heard a loud noise that set off her alarm.He ran off when she shot at him, but it isn't clear he was hit.
When she heard footsteps going upstairs, she grabbed her pistol and walked out into the living room.
It was there she found the suspect, standing near her back door.
I guess the Left would be happier if she had been completely helpless when someone broke into her home. (And anyone who stuck around once an alarm went off was probably a big problem.)
