A home intruder in Detroit didn’t survive his encounter with an armed woman on Friday, but perhaps his fate can serve as a warning to other criminals.

Police told WXYZ-TV that a man in his 20s attempted to break into a woman’s home through a rear window. The female homeowner retrieved her handgun and warned the intruder that she was armed.

The criminal apparently chose not to take her warning seriously and continued to attempt to gain entry into her house. Detroit Police 3rd Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said the woman "told him to stop, but he didn’t listen."

She then fired one shot at the suspect, hitting him in the chest. She immediately called 911 after the shooting.

The man fled on foot and was found near the house shortly after.

“He was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival,” the report adds.

The woman, believed to be in her 50s, was questioned by police but is not expected to face charges.
