DUMFRIES, Va. - An armed woman who stayed home sick from work Wednesday turned out to be a would-be robber's worst nightmare.
Police say an alarm went off Wednesday in broad daylight in the 3300 block of Dondis Creek Drive in Dumfries, prompting the home's owner to her basement door where she found three men trying to get inside.
"When she confronts them, the men take off and one of them returned," said Officer Erika Hernandez, Prince William County
That is when the woman opened fire, striking the would-be robber in the upper body. Police caught him and he was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police later caught the second suspect, but are still looking for the third.
"That was an experience with the cop cars and the helicopters, I was wondering what was going on," said Joshua Washington, a neighbor.
Police say it appears the homeowner was within her rights to shoot the suspect, however, police are still investigating.however, police are still investigating

Sounds pretty cut and dried to me! She was in her own home, and shot the intruder trying to enter. Give her a prize :)
