On May 29 three people allegedly approached an East Point, Georgia, apartment posing as police officers, “intending to force their way inside” when the woman inside the apartment shot one of the would-be invaders.
According to WSB-TV 2, the renter “cracked the door to take a look outside and that’s when police say the three tried to push their way inside.”
Police say said that “one of the suspects raised a handgun but the woman fired first,” grazing one attacker “on the head and the backside.”
The suspects fled, but the wounded one was apprehended.
Neighbors say there have been a lot of break-ins at the apartments recently, and they are glad the renter had a gun with her with which to protect herself.
