A Dallas woman says she was in the bathtub getting ready for work when a burglar came to her home. But before police arrived to the scene, she was able to scare the intruder off with just one shot of her gun.

Pamela Miller told a local ABC News affiliate that she heard her home alarm go off while she was in the bathtub and she knew someone was breaking in.

She then called her husband on his cellphone, then grabbed her gun and locked herself in the bathroom and called 911.

“I am talking to 911 in the bathroom,” she told ABC. “I could hear him coming through the living room to the bedroom, and he kicked the bedroom door in.”

Her home surveillance cameras later revealed that the burglar, a dark-skinned man wearing a light-colored, hooded sweatshirt, had paced around the house before kicking in the front door and entering the home.

Ms. Miller told ABC she heard the man going through her house, kicking down doors. Then he entered her room and she heard him come toward the bathroom door.

“He kicked the bathroom door once, and I fired the shot,” she said.

She put a bullet right through the middle of the bathroom door, but she said she was prepared to unload the magazine if the intruder came through the door.

Dallas police said the burglar had run off by the time they got there, but left behind footprints on several of the doors in the home.
