An 80-year-old Holmes Beach, Fla., woman recovering from hip replacement surgery grabbed her gun when she heard “a commotion” in her home, ignoring a 911 operator’s pleas to put it down.
NJ Logan told Fox 13 News she knew the noise coming from downstairs wasn’t her husband, who was out playing bridge.

Rather, it came from an intruder, who had smashed out a window, cut a screen and was walking around, Fox 13 News reported Friday.
Logan dialed 911 and ran downstairs to confront the burglar, shouting warnings that she was armed.
That’s when a dispatcher told her to put the gun down.
“I’ll put the gun down when I see police,” Logan replied.
The would-be robber took off, and police are still looking for a suspect.
