Gun-toting granny sends burglar running
A burglary suspect on the city's east side learned that even little old ladies may be packing heat.I just wish she was a better shot.
San Antonio police said an 89-year-old woman woke early Thursday morning to somebody attempting to break through the front door of her home in the 400 block of Como. Startled, she quickly fetched her .38 caliber.
She saw the burglar's flashlight inside the house and fired one shot toward the light, police said, which sent the suspect running off into the night.
The woman told police she did not get a good description of the suspect because it was too dark inside the house.
Police said they don't believe the suspect was hit because there was no blood and the bullet was found lodged in a wall inside the home.
