A Pleasant Grove woman defended herself and her home against an intruder Sunday afternoon.
The 46-year-old woman told police she was home alone when a man broke into her house in the 700 South block of 1150 East around 3 p.m. She armed herself with a gun and confronted the man.
The two fought, and the man was able to take the gun from her. A shot was fired during the scuffle, Capt. Michael Smith said. The woman ran, locked herself in her bedroom and armed herself with a shotgun. At least one other shot was fired, Smith said.
She called police from the bedroom, but they did not find the intruder. Smith said there is no indication the intruder was injured.
Shootist-Interruptus. Chicken-Fingers. He who hestiates, yadda yadda. If you find the need to point it, you most probably should shoot it.
Kudos though, for her keeping a shotgun in the powder room.
