A grandmother in Alabama, identified as 63 year old Phyliss Law, is now keeping her pump action shotgun close at hand after she was forced to shoot a home intruder last week.

According to Fox 10 TV,

“We heard this crackling… Like wood popping and stuff. I said oh my god. He trying to come in. So I backed up to my room and got my gun and got my extra clip,” Law said.

She was hoping the suspect would go away. Instead, Law said he came closer.

Law’s granddaughter hid in a closet while she moved closer to the living room and got down on the ground.

Prichard police say she shot the suspect in the head.

Police handcuffed law and briefly detained her while they figured out what was going on.

Police arrested a second suspect nearby. The suspect who was shot in the head was transported to an area hospital and is expected to survive his injury.

This is the 29th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Alabama and the 1,232nd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
