According to, A SC mother became fearful when a man she didn’t know kept ringing her doorbell around 10:45am. The woman took her young child to the bedroom with her and locked the door.

The man at the front door then kicked it in, entered the home, and then kicked in the bedroom door where the mother and child were hiding. While she may have been hiding, this mother was far from defenseless. Once in the bedroom the mother armed herself and met the intruder with gunfire as he kicked down the bedroom door.

It is not believed the intruder was hit, and he fled after the woman began shooting. writes, “The suspect is described in an incident report as white, about 5-feet, 9-inches tall and 200 pounds with a muscular build. He was clean shaven and wore a short-sleeve, button-down shirt, jeans and dark shoes.”
