SPANAWAY, Wash. (KIRO) – An intruder was in for a surprise when he was interrupted by a grandmother with a gun in Washington.
“At the moment I was scared to death, I really was,” Sandy, who did not provide a last name, said.
She knew something was wrong when her dog named Booboo started barking nonstop that Sunday night.
When she went to see what was happening, Sandy found herself face-to-face with a man trying to break in.
“And we looked at each for a few minutes and he turned and started to leave,” Sandy said, but the 78-year-old wasn’t about to let him get away.
“And I said, ‘Oh, no you don’t. You stay right there.’ And I reached over and got my shotgun and I cocked it and I told him to stay right there because he was going to turn and walk away,” she said.
“Told him to go out, sit on the steps. I followed him out. And when he got to the bottom of the steps I told him to sit down and I just stood here with the shotgun waiting for the police to come.”
