A Houston, Texas, woman who awoke to a suspect standing by her bad on New Year’s Day grabbed a gun and shot him dead.

The incident occurred at Mirabella Apartments.

The Houston Chronicle reports that the woman heard “the sound of broken glass.” When she looked up she saw the suspect standing by her bed. He began to close in on her, so she grabbed her pistol and fired a shot, killing him.

When police arrived the woman  told them she had seen the man hanging around the apartment complex, as if he were casing the area.

Police did not charge the woman in the suspect’s death.

Breitbart News reported that an armed grandma home alone on Christmas Eve confronted a would-be intruder, causing him to flee by letting him know he was “going to die.”

Afterward she laughed, saying, “Maybe they break in to get one of my cookie jars, reckon? See if I had cookies in all of them.”
