A woman was home alone with her infant child when she heard intruders in the house. She called 911 to report armed men in her home, telling the operator she was also armed with a shotgun. The men advanced toward her and she fired into the hallway, hitting one of the intruders. They fled the scene but police later found a juvenile being treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound. The adult man who brought him in was arrested on two counts of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault. (chattanoogan.com, Chattanooga, Tenn., 03/15/22)
