IA granny shoots at burglar

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

DES MOINES, IA (WFLX) - An alleged burglar picked the wrong grandmother to mess with in Iowa.

Eighty-nine-year-old Beatrice Turner got her .22 caliber pistol when she heard a bang on her door. She warned the man to stop, but he didn't listen, so Turner fired a shot and missed.

The crook ran away. "I've always been a woman that has been active. I live here alone; I do my own work, and I've never been afraid," said Turner. "And I've always put my faith in God to watch over me, and that's why I didn't panic."

Police eventually caught up with the robber, who lives next door to Turner, and arrested him.
