A homeowner in GA came home after she got a notification about her alarm going off. A police officer arrived on scene before the woman and checked the home out but didn’t find anyone.

When the woman arrived and walked around her home she encountered a group of four suspected burglars. One was hiding in the woods behind her house and the others were exiting the backdoor of the home. The woman had walked around the back of the home to check the property after the alarm call.

Caught between the suspect in the woods and the three suspects exiting her home, the woman drew a gun and opened fire on the suspect who was holding a gun as she ran from the backyard.

The woman managed to escape the situation.

None of the suspects were hit, but all four were captured, separately, a short time later.

The suspects ranged in age from 17-19. All four are currently in jail. All four are charged with burglary and two are also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
