A Detroit woman's confrontation Thursday morning with a group of intruders in her home on the city's west side ended with one of them being shot dead.
It all unfolded in the 17500 block of Appoline at about 10 a.m.
Family members of the 38-year-old woman told Local 4 she heard the men break into her home and found them in her kitchen, handling a gun they had found in her purse.
The family members said one of the men tried to go upstairs but was shot in the head by the woman, who used another gun she had in her home.
Three other men ran off, two of them got into a white Ford Taurus.
Police sources confirm the familys account and took the woman in for further questioning.
She was released back to her family a couple of hours later.
Her family also said she has a concealed weapons permit and she knows how to shoot.
Neighbors were shocked but said the woman did what she had to do.
There was no other way. It was either her or him," said John Swanson.

This woman deserves a medal.
But the libs say it would be better if she had just let them Rape and Rob and Kill her rather than use an evil gun.
Did she have to kill him? Couldn’t she just shoot him in the elbow or toe and make him go away? /bs
A while back liberals were complaining about the rising number of defensive “murders” taking place in Detroit.
This is why I’m not as pessimistic about the future of Detroit as most people are.
I’m only sad that she didn’t get head shots on the other vermin who invaded her home ... now, someone somewhere will have to deal with the scum.
Conservative response: Too bad she didn't kill all four of them.
This woman deserves a medal.
I’ll pay for it.:)
You can be sure of that and I bet they are Amish too.
I love a happy ending! *snif*
Well 1/4 of a completely happy ending.

she should have kept shooting and got them all.
Why did she go to the police station? Was it a temporary apprehension?
What if she refused?
Or was it to get to a quiet conversation place while the coroner and photographers and cleanup crew did their jobs?
Who pays for the blood and guts cleanup?
The other woman should not have said that she does not have a gun as she has made herself an easy target.
Good shooting and the video report says the thug she capped had the purse gun. Too bad she did not take out the rest
of the trash.
This is something like the 40th episode of this nature in the last 12 months or so in "Detwaa"
My point is, this is not getting the airplay "other: events have...
I suspect that she is a black Lady and the four are/were black vermin, so this doesn’t work for exploitation in the democrat meme. The media ARE the fifth column enemy of America and We The People. Brave Lady, good shot. I like her already!
I hope someone starts a defence fund for this women,i’ll donate a box of ammo immediately.
Ted Nugent used to say ‘Detroit’s not the murder capital because they’re more violent, they just shoot better!’.
Training and training.
Lesson Learned: If you are breaking and entering and find a gun in a purse, the lady may be inclined to use deadly force....shortly.
if she was smart, she kept her mouth shut and went to the station to wait for a lawyer before being questioned.
I’m sure the deceased youth looks just like Obama’s son would look, if he had a son...
