The 72 year-old woman shot the one suspect in her house after he and his accomplice had assualted her.  One of the suspects took her vehicle and went to the bank to draw money while the other stayed behind. The woman, who managed to untie herself, took her .38 special firearm and fired a shot when the suspect in her house tried to attack her. He died on the scene.

When the other suspect came back from the bank and saw what had happened he ran away. Police say he never drew any money. It’s believed he had the wrong pin code.
