A 68-year-old Houston grandmother did some quick thinking when a man reportedly showed up at her door naked and pleasuring himself Tuesday afternoon.
What are the details?
According to KTRK-TV, the woman — who identified herself as "Granny Jean" — said she was shocked when a man showed up at her home on a bicycle.
The 38-year-old man reportedly knocked at her door, and when she answered, she realized that he had pulled his pants open and was masturbating. Jean said she warned the man to leave her property or get shot, but to no avail.
"Some guy pulled off his pants and pulled his pants open, playing with his thing, and he ran up and I told him to get away from my door, or I will shoot him," Jean told the station in a phone interview.
The man refused to leave, Jean said, so she grabbed her pistol and ended up fighting off the unwanted guest.
"He kept coming and reached for my door after it was locked, so I shot through the door," Jean explained. The station reported that the bullet hit its intended target dead-on, striking the man in the chest.
The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery. He is expected to make a recovery.
The news outlet reported that investigators said that this isn't the first time this man has run into trouble while naked. Authorities arrested the man just last week for running around in the nude.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Jean was not charged in the shooting, and police investigators will coordinate with the Harris County District Attorney's Office to determine if any crimes were committed.
Lt. Larry Crowson of the Houston Police Department told the Chronicle that Jean's teen granddaughter was inside the home during the alleged incident, but did not witness the altercation and was unharmed.
Jean told KTRK, "I don't bother nobody, I don't get in nobody's business. It's just me and him, and like I keep saying, I warned him."
