Just as Corpus Christi, Texas, resident Candace McLallen was
about to step into the shower one afternoon, she was interrupted by
the front doorbell. Looking outside, McLallen saw an unfamiliar car
and three equally unfamiliar men. Determined not to let them in,
and in a quandary as to what to do next, she was stunned by the loud
noise and flying splinters of the front door as it slammed open.
McLallen raced to her bedroom, where she kept a .38-cal. revolver
for home protection. Once there, she grabbed the gun in one hand
and her one-year-old daughter in the other and let two shots ring
out. The home invaders were so scared when they realized their
intended "victim" was armed that they fled the scene, leaving the
getaway car behind.
