Police reports say a woman in the 100 block of East Judson Avenue shot a man who broke into her house early Friday.
Police were called to the home about 2:15 a.m. for a burglary in progress, where dispatchers told them they heard a woman scream, a man yell dont do it, dont do it, and the line then went dead.
First officers at the home said a back window was broken out, and a trash can was propped underneath the window for someone to get in.

She handed one of the officers a .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun and told the officer it was the gun she had used.
