A woman who was being stalked by her husband’s male cousin defended herself with a firearm when he gained entry to her home by breaking a window with a hammer. Upon hearing the window break, the woman retrieved a firearm from a safe. There were five children in the house at the time of the break-in. As Oldham entered the home, the woman fired once, causing minor injuries to the cousin. All five children and the homeowner were reported to be safe. (fox17.com, Nashville, Tenn., 6/5/19)
