A 70-year-old grandmother took matters into her own hands Saturday, shooting an intruder who attempted to break into her Philadelphia home – and now the man is in the hospital.

Maxine Thompson awoke on May 5 around 4:30 a.m. to someone banging on her door and shattering glass, attempting to enter her home, she explained.

When she peeked out her window, she saw the 45-year-old man using her patio furniture to elevate himself to enter another window.

That’s when Thompson acted quickly, grabbing her handgun and firing shots at the intruder.

“First, I thought I was dreaming, and then, I looked out the window, outside. I was still hearing the banging, banging, banging, so I yelled to whoever, ‘Who’s that on my door? Get off my door; get off my door,’” Thompson told Philadelphia’s Fox 29.
