A gun-wielding grandmother in Alabama confronted a wanted man in her driveway on Monday after he crashed a stolen car near her home, according to investigators.
Marcia Black, 75, said she pointed a rifle at the suspect while her 15-year-old granddaughter called 911.
“I was just calm as can be. I knew I was in control,” the grandmother-of-four told WAAY-TVon Tuesday.
Investigators said Cameron Powers came to Black’s home in Limestone County, west of Huntsville.
“I walked out and said, ‘Can I help you?’ He said, ‘Yes ma’am, I’d like to use your phone,” Black said.
She said she fired a shot in the air to stop Powers from getting closer to her house where two of her grandchildren reportedly were watching from inside.
“I wanted to keep him at a distance. I didn’t intend to kill him. I just wanted him to think that I would shoot him,” Black said. – READ MORE
