A Detroit woman refused to become a victim when she used her gun and quick thinking to save herself from a group of men who broke into her home while she was sleeping.
The woman, locally known as Ms. Dee, awoke at approximately 2 a.m. Tuesday after a man broke through her bedroom window pointed a gun in her face and told her not to move, Click On Detroit reported.
Three or four men followed, according to reports, while Ms. Dee secretly grabbed for her bedside firearm.
“I was able to get to my gun. They didn’t know I had it. By that time, it was just gunfire,” Ms. Dee told Click On Detroit.
As a cancer survivor, Ms. Dee is no stranger to adversity, and she doesn’t back down from it either.
“I told the nurse at the doctor that I think I’m a cat, because I keep just going through stuff and God keeps pulling me through it,” she said.
A cat with a good head on her shoulders.
Ms. Dee got a gun license after her home was broken into three years ago, according to Click On Detroit.
Detroit Police Chief, James Craig has made public statements telling residents that they have the right to defend themselves. And Click on Detroit reported that home and business break-ins are down 29 percent from last year.
Ms. Dee’s brother told reporters he is glad she was armed. He warned invaders that Detroit homeowners are ready to protect themselves.
“If you break into our home, we’re going to kill you,” he said.
Ms. Dee took a shot in the leg, but thinks she hit at least one of the men who broke into her home. So far, no arrests have been made in connection with the break in.
“We work every day. Me and my finance, we work every day. We don’t do drugs. We don’t do none of that,” Ms. Dee told Click on Detroit.
“We are regular people.”
Many would argue Ms. Dee seems far from ordinary, and quite remarkable.
