A Houston woman shot and wounded an assailant who tried reaching for her purse, law enforcement officials say.
ABC 13 reports that the incident took place around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday on Creekbend at Fondren in southwest Houston.
Officials claimed that she fired two rounds and the men ran off.
“It was all I had in my gun. I shot until I couldn’t shoot anymore,” Hudgins stated.
Shortly after, authorities received a call about a man with a gunshot wound on the other side of the complex.
The robbery suspect went through surgery and is now expected to face aggravated robbery charges.
Hudgins expressed her disbelief to ABC13 and was still in shock after she survived an attempted robbery without any bodily harm.
“I saved my life,” Hudgins proclaimed.
Thankfully, the media covered this instance of defensive gun use. It usually opts to either downplay defensive gun use cases or focus its attention exclusively on high profile mass shootings.
