USA -( The below video shows several different security camera angles of an engagement between a homeowner and three armed attackers. One of the attackers was killed during the event.

You may need to watch each angle several times to see what happens. We are making no comments on what was done right or wrong in this video. What we are noting is the fighting mindset that this woman had.

If you have attended any self-defense schools or read any articles concerning using a gun in a self-defense encounter, you will constantly hear from those who have “been there and done that” that mindset is the one of the biggest factors of winning a fight.

We recommend turning the volume down as the audio is the dispatch call after the encounter.

When watching this video, observe the woman’s handling of the gun during the fight. Do you think she is highly trained or not?

Who drew first? What do you think her mindset was? What was the mindset of her attackers? Is there anything you would have done differently?

Why do 911 operators ask so many DUMB-ASS questions, she said she was bleeding, Are you hurt?

SA – there were actually three invaders, not two as the victim initially determined, which might have been unfortunate. She *did* clear over her shoulder after chasing the two perps out the front door, so the ‘tunnel vision’ factor was less.

Police dispatcher *appears* to have been wasting precious response time by asking inane questions, but there may have been another dispatcher vectoring LE and medical aid to the scene in which case her staying on the line to garner additional information would have been appropriate.

Too many unknowns. The 911 operator was likely doing as trained to get as much information as she could. The caller certainly has english as a second language. Language issues exacerbated information gathering delays. Don’t know if the 911 operator has already notified LE to respond during the questions or not. Also, caller has not clearly articulated what is going on. Remember the 911 operator cannot see the CCTV feed as we can in the video. Caller may be trained to shoot the pistol but not trained in TTPs for engaging armed intruders. She is lucky to be alive.


Could she have done some things better, should she have reloaded the gun in case they came back? The answer is yes to both. Did she do OK? Again the answer is yes she did, 3 bad guys gone, 2 good people OK. From the video she handled her gun very well, shooting one handed under stress at 3 moving targets that were attempting to shoot at her. It l was not “perfect” but it worked, I hope everyone else can do as well under the same conditions, woke up in the middle of the night by armed intruders going… Read more »


It’s easy to criticize her tactics, but when confronted by 3 armed examples of Pan Urbanus she fought and prevailed. IIRC, as long as the perps are still present they are a threat, so firing until until they are gone is justified.


As I have said on countless occasions (SLUGS FOR THUGS, and the game goes on) well the game found this woman and she fought back. Good for her she did well and sent the thugs running for the hills, she got one of them but next time she just might get all,of them. Again (SLUGS FOR THUGS, and the game will go on) as long as these thugs feel the need to cause trouble.


She did not clear the house and protect her back after she knew the one douchebag had run the other way. She should have retreated to a position where she would have a clear field of fire on both groups/doors. She should also have immediately reloaded when given the chance. Just my observations, YMMV.

Gwinnett County Georgia. Sept. 2016. Georgia still has Castle Doctrine – as long as the person feels they are under threat. Clearly this was the case. The lady in question was not the only person in the home. Rubin Meija, homeowner, was in his bedroom when one of the perps burst in, held a gun to his head and demanded money or his life. His boss, the lady with the gun, was there by happenstance in another more remote bedroom. She is credited with saving Meija’s life. The video continues to show a dazed Meija coming out of his area… Read more »

Now that is a women after my own heart. Good for her for doing what was needed.

If I was 911 management I would retrain my dispatcher to confirm the callers address before they start asking twenty questions. Awesome video! It was a real joy to see those tough guy thugs jump and run like a bunch of scared rabbits.


They should fire that 911 operator. She asked several stupid questions, some of them twice. Meanwhile this woman is fighting for her life and no one is coming to help because the operator is babbling on.

Seeing how long it takes a 911 operator to dispatch the police is reason to buy a gun! At least you have SOME chance of survival!


Lots of fighting spirit, but she needs training. Also, I question her firing at fleeing felons after they have left the house.


It looks like they were hunting for her. It also appears that she knew they were coming and hid in a darkened area behind some boxes before they breached the door. Three against one, she was lucky, the element of surprise saved her.


Kudos to the armed homeowner! The only bad news is that two got away, so they’ll be out victimizing others tomorrow. But this is a learning moment, don’t let it pass you by. Look how easily they got through the front door. Attacks come at any time, and you first defensive barrier is your front door. Get a good one and secure it, then look at your back door and double it. The fact that she has high quality video only makes it better for her. She at least got that part right.
