In Columbus, Ohio, when a widow heard someone breaking into her home, she used a gun that had been given to her just the week before to fatally shoot the intruder.
“She was armed and apparently fired multiple shots at him,” said Sgt. Dave Sicilia.
The woman’s son says he bought the gun for her a week ago to keep her safe now that she is living alone, but he never thought she would actually have to use it, reported WBNS-10TV in Columbus.
The woman was not arrested, and the incident is under further investigation.
