Pistol-Packing Grandma

Sixty nine year-old Ethel Jones poses with her .38 caliber snubnose revolver behind the glass door window she shattered when she fired three shots at a burglar who broke into her home.

A gun-totin’ granny in Alabama shot an would-be intruder during a late-night robbery attempt on Monday.

Ethel Jones, a 69-year-old widow, was in the bathroom when she heard someone outside her home in Decatur, Alabama around 3 a.m.

Text continues after Pictures of the Week gallery:

“I heard somebody at the back door and then around at the front door,” Jones told the Decatur Daily. “I said to myself, ‘Somebody’s fixin’ to break in.’ ”

The mother of four generally keeps a .38 snubnosed revolver under her pillow, and carries it around when she is home alone at night.

The intruder removed a window air conditioner and started to make his way into the house, Jones told the newspaper. When they saw one another, she fired.

“I shot three times,” Jones said, “and he ran away hollering.”
