A home invader in Miami Gardens (FL) experienced a sudden change of heart yesterday after kicking in the door of the home, only to find a mother insider with a pump-action shotgun in hand, protecting her children.
A Miami Gardens woman possibly saved her children’s life earlier this month after an intruder broke into their home.
Surveillance video obtained Tuesday by Local 10 News shows a man entering the home March 4 while the mother of two was inside with her 10-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.
The mother didn’t hesitate to grab her shotgun.
“I will do anything to protect my family,” the woman, who does not want to be identified, said.
The woman, who did not fire her gun, said she is still shaken up and frightened about the ordeal.
“All of the sudden I hear some banging noise. I thought it was my dreams or something,” she said.
The woman said her instincts kicked in.
As her security cameras captured the man attempting to break into her home, she quickly rushed into her bedroom and grabbed her shotgun to protect her children.
“They were screaming and crying hysterically, because they were afraid of anything happening,” she said.
The burglar quickly realized that he was in serious trouble after making it inside the home.
“He was running for his life and kept looking back, making sure I wasn’t going to shoot him in the back,” the woman said.
The only thing that kept the man alive during the home invasion was the fact that she didn’t want to kill him in front of her ten and three-year-old children.
I rather strongly doubt he’ll be back.
