This is the dramatic moment a mother-of-two opened fire with an assault rifle on intruders who tried to smash their way into her home.
The woman took action after three hooded individuals kicked down the door of her Detroit home on Monday night where she lives with her two young children.
She fired off rounds in a bid to deter the would-be burglars, later saying she 'didn't have time to get scared'. The unnamed mother told WXYZ Detroit: 'I let them know I had a gun once they were in the house and they challenged me and said "no you don't have a gun" so that's when I shot off the first round.
As the intruders fled the home while shots rang out, one dropped a handgun. He grabbed it and tried to get back into the house but was scared off by more shots.
All three suspects are seen running through thick snow from the house. No one was hurt in the incident.
Police arrested three teenage suspects a short time later.

Let me guess, it was a semi-auto eeeevil looking black rifle.
They should have shouted “police” and busted the door down.
This is in a U.K. paper? Odd. Such heroics in Detroit should at least appear in the papers in the good old USA.
Is it really an “assault” rifle if it’s being used for self defense?

That is a good thing for the UK, as it shows how having a right to bear arms can be beneficial!
If it ain’t selective fire, it ain’t an assault rifle.
At point-blank range, she missed three guys, who were bunched together, despite pulling the trigger on some Armalite long rifle variant. This is what I call a lack of gun control.
The Detroit News and Free Press are behind (time wise) the Brits?
I just loves a happy ending!.......................
If it hasn’t already been done, soon enough one of them will manage to bump enough random synapses together and do it.
Looks like a Hi-Point 9mm carbine. Working man’s gun.
We don’t have any more patience in this city for criminals. - Officer Woody
Does that mean you had patience for criminals before tonight?
More range time needed.
It will be/was on local Channel 7, Detroit. Good for the mom, protecting her kids. The teens sure messed up the house—punks.
Day-twah has a new Police Chief who seems to be serious.
Dang - I was hoping for a happy ending.
Roger that. Definitely a Hi-Point in a pistol caliber. But because of the sinister black color, it was an “assault rifle.”
Last names- holder and/or obama?
According to this book, which I recommend everybody who caries should read, she didn’t fire to kill. She did what it calls “display behavior.” Display behavior is why cops can fire 80 rounds at near point blank and miss. It’s deadly to do this.
