Default 76-year-old woman fires warning shot at home intruder

An Evansville woman was asleep when someone began kicking in the door. The noise woke her up so she immediately grabbed some protection, her gun. The 76-year-old woman says she saw a man without a shirt on attempting to enter her home. She warned him she had a gun and wasn't afraid to shoot. She proved just that by shooting a warning shot in the grass, and police say she had that right. "She's in her upper 70s, and she has every right to defend herself. That's her castle and in Indiana, the castle doctrine is in effect," Sgt. Jason Cullum said. Police say her alarm company alerted them of the break-in. She said she wasn't trying to shoot the intruder, just send a message to never come back again. He was gone when police arrived. "So we're following up on it. She did the right thing. She defended her home within the law, but she also passed on the information to the officers coming to her house so they knew they were coming to a little more than an alarm," Sgt. Cullum says. The homeowner says she taught herself to shoot after another break-in years ago. She says she wouldn't hesitate to do it again if someone tried breaking in.
