Detroit homeowner shoots intruder who broke in with crowbar

A homeowner on Detroit's west side is thankful that she got her concealed weapons permit last year.

The 50-year-old woman used it to fend off an intruder early Tuesday morning at her home on Heyden Street.

The homeowner's family told Local 4 that the woman heard someone trying to break in around 12:30 a.m. She immediately called 911 and grabbed her handgun.

"All she just kept saying, 'I don't want to shoot anybody,'" said Anita McGee, the homeowner's sister.

The woman repeatedly warned the suspect that she had a gun. Police say the 24-year-old man used a crowbar to break a rear window at the home. After he made his way into the home, she opened fire. She was still on the phone with the 911 operator.

"Once he got the window broke, he did try to enter the house. So that's when she told the lady on the other end that she was going to shoot and she did," said McGee.

I’m sure he was getting his life together and wouldn’t hurt anyone.

Why would you need a concealed carry permit in your home?

Yep. Just got his life turned around and was about to sign a recording contract.

The article comments seem rather unsympathetic toward the feller with the crowbar...

“A homeowner on Detroit’s west side is thankful that she got her concealed weapons permit last year. “

Has nothing to do with the story. Don’t need a permit in your own house.

I wonder what caliber permit she's using?

This one happened last week. Her brother said he has encouraged all 9 of his sisters to arm themselves.

The Cinco De Mayo parade in Detroit was cut short yesterday by a shooting.

I dunno, but it would have to be pretty big to shoot a crowbar.

They didn’t mention what caliber crowbar he used to shoot Obama’s son.

She warned him several times that she had a gun but he kept coming. There’s no doubt in my mind had she not been armed he would have killed her.
