A 70 year old homeowner in WVA grabbed her gun and went to investigate why her burglar alarm was going off at 2am.

As she approached the backdoor, she ran right into the suspect who punched her in the face.

The woman fired several shots from .38 caliber revolver at the intruder, who then fled.

Police do not believe the suspect was hit and their efforts to locate him with dogs were unsuccessful.

If the victim of this burglary had been unarmed she could have been seriously injured or killed when confronted by this burglar,” Sheriff Steve Kessler said in the release.
