An PhD educator in her 50′s shoots and kills (using a .22 pistol) a man in his 20′s who broke into her home and confronted her with a kitchen knife.

The man may have been planning on raping the woman, based on his criminal past.

Fortunately the would be victim was fast thinking, fast acting and was able to turn the tables on her would be assailant.

Even though the suspect was not armed with a firearm, this is clearly a case where a gun was used as an equalizer.

A fully grown man with bad intentions could easily overpower an older female and commit deadly physical harm without even using a weapon.
