In Indiana, a mother was home alone with her baby she had just put down to sleep. After going to her own room, she heard a strange noise coming from the children’s room.
Having no idea what she would discover, the mother stepped into the hallway and it hit her.
On an otherwise average afternoon, the mother, whose name was not given, hoped to use her baby’s bedtime to do some chores.
After putting the baby down, she slowly crawled out, hoping not to wake the child, while quietly closing the door. Throughout the routine, she was unaware of what awaited her just outside the child’s bedroom window in her peaceful Indianapolis suburb.
According to Fox59, the woman was in her bedroom when she heard a cracking noise from across the hall.
An intruder had entered their home through their child’s room, putting the protective parents in full Mama Bear mode. At the time, she didn’t realize how dire the situation was until she found what the stranger had in his pockets.
The intruder missed the warning sign at the entrance to the family’s home as he abruptly entered from the opposite side. The mother grabbed her pistol, which she kept in the bedroom, and went out into the hallway.
Her father later said his daughter had barely made it through her bedroom door when the criminal shot her, missing.
He might be a bad target, but the mother wasn’t. After his failed attempt, she immediately defended herself and brought him down with several shots from her pistol. She later saw what else he had on him after the police conducted a strip search.
Police arrived at the scene with the man alive, despite being shot multiple times. He was rushed to the emergency room to have his wounds treated, but not without first ascertaining that he was prepared for a full-fledged hostage situation.
Indianapolis Metro Police Department commander Mike Spears said officers discovered zip ties and walkie-talkies on the suspect.
The intruder found out the hard way that he had picked the wrong house, which the homeowners had put up an ad to keep people like him away from. At the entrance to her home was a metal sign that read “We Do Not Call 911” and was in the shape of a pistol.
Bravo to this brave mother who did exactly what she should have done to protect her baby who was completely unharmed in the incident. This criminal should have heeded the warning on the sign above her door instead of taking a bullet.
It’s a simple fact that armed victims who fight back live longer, and it’s faster than dialing 911 and waiting minutes for help when every second counts.
