A St. Louis, Missouri, woman knew that she would have to defend
herself late one night when she heard her garage door being kicked
in. Despite the fact thai 87-year-old Nina Sloan walked with the aid
of a cane, she managed to retrieve her pistol and head toward the
kitchen where she heard sounds of breaking glass. Seeing a hand
reach through the broken glass to unlock the kitchen door, Sloan
fired her gun twice. The intruder fled and Sloan called the
authorities. Police are investigating if this attempted robbery is
related to another one that occured down the street the previous
day. When asked about the incident, Sloan said, "I'm a good person,
but I'm not going to let somebody run over me. You're going to break
into my house when I didn't invite you? Oh, no!"
