Home invasion suspects fled a West Cleveland home when the wheelchair-bound female homeowner pulled a gun and told them she would use it if they continued trying to make entry.
The incident occurred in broad daylight around 10:30 a.m.
The woman told Fox 8 that she “looked at the door and there was a man, right there, right outside looking like he was going for my door.” She said another man was “cutting the screen on a window of her garage.”
She called 911 and retrieved a handgun, which she displayed to the man outside her door. She said, “I put the gun up to the window of the door and I yelled, ‘Get off my property.'” Both suspects fled.
Going forward, she said her doors will be locked at all times, and the gun will always be with her.
She said, “I don’t want to ever hurt anyone, but I feel like I need to protect myself.”
