A gunman fired a shot Tuesday night into a Winspear Avenue house, and the occupant retaliated by firing a shot back, police reported. No injuries were reported.
The incident happened in the 400 block of Winspear in the city's University Heights neighborhood at about 6:10 p.m.
Northeast District Police said three men dressed in black hooded shirts repeatedly pounded and kicked on the door, and demanded that the woman inside open it, police said.
One of the men then fired a shotgun through the door, near the peep hole.
When the woman used her own shotgun to return fire, the three men drove away, police reported. The woman's shot struck a neighboring house at 494 Winspear.
Police believe two of the men had shotguns, while the third man had a handgun.
The investigation is being led by Detective Sgt. Billy Crawford.
Glad it ended well for her, but hitting the neighbors house seems kinda reckless. Yet again the media publishes an address.
I'm glad to read the woman was prepared to protect herself, this could have ended far worse and unfortunately, normally would have!

Wonder if she used #4 or #1 buckshot?
