A woman shot and injured a gunman in her yard early one
Sunday, cutting short his assault on her and her children. Jaquie
Creazzo and her three daughters were forced to flee their home after
smoke from a car fire billowed into the house. Once they were
outside, Justin Michael Getz came screaming toward the
wheelchair-bound woman and her family, firing two handguns at them.
"He was loaded for bears," Creazzo said. Her daughters and two
nearby firefighters ducked for cover from the erratic gunfire, but
Creazzo drew her own gun and fired several shots, hitting her
attacker in the leg. Getz was the ex-boyfriend of Creazzo's eldest
child, and, according to Creazzo, had threatened to kill the family
two days earlier when the girl refused to see him again. "I'm
certain if I hadn't responded, none of us would be here today,"
Creazzo said of the incident. "He had made threats to kill each and
every one of us."
