A Southern California grandmother took a shot at a home intruder with her .357-magnum Smith & Wesson, saving her 85-year-old, wheelchair-bound, World War II veteran husband.
Ms. Cooper then says to the dispatcher that the intruder is trying to enter through a glass door — and that she can see the outline of his body through the glass, AP said.
She then tells the dispatcher: "I'm firing," and then a loud bang sounds, AP reported.
