Shannon Linton and her teenage daughter were at home sleeping in Savannah, Ga. when a pair of robbers broke in. At first unaware of the intrusion, Linton went to investigate the suspicious noise when she was punched in the face by one of the intruders. Linton retreated to a bedroom, retrieved a 12-gauge shotgun and fired at the home invaders. Upon meeting armed resistance, the intruders fled the scene.
Following the incident, Linton told a local media outlet, “I did learn that at least now I know that I can protect us. I don't have to rely on my husband, if, when he is at work, I know I can do it. I don't have to be afraid of that anymore.” (WTOC, Savannah, Ga. 04/26/16)
