A South Carolina mother-of-three took action after she heard a man attempting to break into her home – and shot him.
Ashley Jones of Anderson County told FOX Carolina she heard someone banging at her door early on Thursday. The mother said she called 911 and got her gun. She said she saw a man banging at her door when she peered out the window.
“I yelled, 'I have a gun, I will shoot you, get away from my house,'” Jones said.
She said she used her gun after the intruder kicked her door in to come inside the home. Video surveillance outside her home captured the incident.
“So then he kicks the door in as soon as he kicks the door in and tries to take a step in my house that’s when I shot him and he ran off, she recalled. “Something just came over me, I got calm and my heart slowed down.”
The mother said she “would’ve killed him if I had to” if the intruder tried to come inside her home. She said she was thankful she had protection because she didn’t think she could fight off the man.
