NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A 68-year-old grandmother armed with a shot gun took aim at criminals in her neighborhood over the weekend, and she didn’t miss. The woman shot two men trying to break into her home.
It happened in the early Saturday morning in South Nashville at a home on Glencliff Road. She said she had no regrets.
The woman keeps a shot gun next to her bed. It’s been there for a long time.
She admitted she wasn’t quite sure if she could ever pull the trigger and shoot someone, but she said she was scared and that’s all it took.
We agreed not to mention her name, but she said she wasn’t a violent person.
“Never in my whole life have I ever harmed anything or anybody, but I’ve never been put in that position,” she said.
