80-year-old woman shoots and kills young intruder after he stabs her husband
Age is nothing but a number.
An 80-year-old woman in the small town of Sultan, Wash., proved that Thursday night when she shot and killed an intruder who broke into her home.
At the moment, details are thin.
A man from Gold Bar, Wash. — a town of about 2,000 — broke into the woman’s home around 8:30 p.m. Thursday while she was enjoying an evening with her husband, 75, and son, 45. According to a Komo News report, police said the man broke in through the back door. After hearing a noise, the woman walked into the back room, where the 25-year-old intruder stood, wielding a large knife.
Her husband was on the ground.
The intruder had stabbed her husband in the abdomen, felling but not killing him. Before calling 911, the woman took matters into her own hands, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. She snuck in the back bedroom, presumably unnoticed, where she grabbed a gun she hides there.
She returned to the main room, took aim and fired several shots into the intruder, killing him.
She and her son managed to escape without any injuries, authorities said. Her husband was airlifted to the Harborview Regional Medical Center.
