Five male intruders fled a Detroit woman’s home on Tuesday after she fought them off with her personal handgun. She obtained the weapon after her home was robbed three years ago.

The victim, who goes by Ms. Dee, was shot in the leg at 2 a.m. while exchanging gunfire with the men, but she said one of them was likely hit.

“I was able to get to my gun. They didn’t know I had it. By that time, it was just gunfire. We are regular people. We work every day. Me and my fiancé, we work every day. We don’t do drugs. We don’t do none of that,” Ms. Dee said, a local NBC affiliate reported Tuesday.

Ms. Dee, a cancer survivor, told the station that God keeps helping her though life-threatening situations.

“I told the nurse and the doctor that I think I’m a cat, because I keep just going through stuff and God keeps pulling me through it,” she said, the station reported.

Her brother Corey had a message for future home invaders.

“If you break into our home, we’re going to kill you,” he said, the station reported.
