Stock Gun Photo - Revolver and BulletsA Birmingham, AL woman went to her basement to have a smoke.

There she was confronted by her ex-boyfriend, who apparently had broken into the home and was hiding in the basement.

The intruder allegedly assaulted the woman, took her cell phone, and destroyed it.

Fearing for her safety, the woman drew a gun from her pocket and fired at the suspect, striking him once in the leg.

The suspect then fled the home, but dropped his cell phone in the process. The woman used the phone to call 911.

The suspect was taken into custody nearby and was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound.

The suspect may have charges of stalking and burglary once he is released from the hospital.

This is the 21st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Alabama and the 1033rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
