A Georgia woman's grit — as well as her pistol — can likely be credited for scaring a home intruder off his plan.
What are the details?
Gwendolyn Agard, a 79-year-old great-grandmother, heard someone trying to gain access to her home through the back stairs of her Jackson County home on Feb. 11.
She called police immediately but she wasn't about to sit on her hands waiting for law enforcement to arrive.
"I've always said, don't ever let anybody come in and run you out of your own house," she told WSB-TV.
She took her own advice. Agard said that while the intruder broke her back window, she loaded up her pistol.
"I said to him, 'You come down these damn steps and I'll blow your f***ing brains out," she told the station. "And that's exactly what I said."
Agard fired two shots, missing the intruder, but it was enough to scare him — whom the police later identified as 20-year-old Hans Rogers — into a bedroom closet in her house, where police discovered him when they arrived.
"Trust me," she told the station, "God was all in the picture. Because my legs were trembling. I was saying, 'Lord have mercy, Jesus.' And then 'motherf***er' the next time. It was all mixed in."
Connie Oliver, a mail carrier, was impressed to hear how well Agard fared during the break-in.
"That's why I say she's my hero. That she could do this at her age, I was very impressed. And I'm thankful the good Lord took care of her," Oliver said.
Rogers faces a list of charges, including home invasion, according to the station.
