TEN MINUTES AFTER Suzanne Carson's husband left for work, she went
back to bed with her 3-year-old daughter. Shortly thereafter, Carson
heard a noise and went to check on her 4-year-old son sleeping down
the hall. According to police, to Carson's horror she saw a man
tampering with the back door. She loaded a gun and shouted at the
man to stop. Unabated, the intruder forced the door open and began
to enter. Carson fired a single shot, but the brazen suspect
continued his advance. Two more shots, however, and the suspect
recognized the folly of breaking into the home of an armed citizen,
and he fled the area. Carson's husband had taken her shooting for
the first time just a month prior. "I'm so proud of her for being
able to protect herself and the kids," he said.
