CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Undeterred by a punch to the face, a 70-year-old Fayette County woman greeted a late night intruder in her home with several rounds from her .38-caliber revolver, authorities said.
Deputies were dispatched to a potential burglary just before 2 a.m. Thursday at a home in Dothan.
While driving to the scene, deputies were told the homeowner called 911 and reported someone breaking into her home. She told dispatchers the intruder fled after she shot at him, according to a statement by the sheriff's office.
She told deputies her burglar alarm woke her just after 2 a.m., and she grabbed her gun and went to look for the cause of the alarm.

Listen for liberals soon screaming “See, we told you, she had a gun and that invited trouble!”
They’ll say anything.
God didn’t make all men equal. Colonel Colt did.
Not in WV.
Every breathing person of age in WV is armed. Not a good place to break into homes.
I like this sheriff.
