From KTen.com – Deputies say a woman fired a gun after she reported that someone tried to sneak into her home by coming in through the window.

According to the investigator on the case, this is likely not a random attack, but was done by someone she knows. Deputies showed up after the woman’s employer reported that something was wrong.

Deputies in Bryan County got a call about a “burglary in progress” around 10 a.m. at a house near Platter. “A female was reporting a man had broken into her house and made entry into the house and she had apparently barricaded herself in a closet,” says Bryan County Sheriff’s Office investigator Nathan Calloway.

The woman scared the intruder off by firing a gun into the air.

Police believe the woman knew the intruder and that it does not appear to be a random crime.
