Mother uses semi-automatic rifle to protect her children, WXYZ, Detroit, Mich. 02/18/14

Thursday, February 20, 2014

A mother was at home with her children in Detroit, Mich. when three men, one of whom was armed with a handgun, broke into the house. The mother responded by retrieving a semi-automatic rifle and warning the intruders that she was armed. When the criminals persisted despite the warning, the mother fired at the home invaders. At first, all three intruders retreated outside the home, but the one armed with a pistol decided to try to enter the home again. The criminal’s reentry prompted another round of gunfire from the mother, at which point the armed home invader fled for good.

Police captured the trio a short time later. (WXYZ, Detroit, Mich. 02/18/14)
