    Son says woman in motel shooting really a bad shot
    By Associated Press

    COLUMBUS: Her son says he was surprised when a 70-year-old woman shot and killed a man police say was attempting to rob the family in their Ohio motel room.

    The man tells Columbus media outlets his mother normally has terrible aim.

    Police have not filed charges against the woman, and the family, from Ironton in southern Ohio, has declined to be identified.

    They came to Columbus for a major horse show and were in the motel room Wednesday night when police say a man with a gun barged in through the door, which was open slightly.

    The son says his mother found herself closer to her purse when they were all ordered down on the floor, and she pulled out her own handgun and fired.

    Police say 25-year-old Wayne Winston died after staggering to the parking lot.

    +1 for the lady, but Keep Your Hotel Doors Closed and Locked!

    I don't know how many times I see people with their room doors open.

    Most hotel room doors these days have automatic door closers, yet you still see people with trash cans or stuff propping the door open!

    Looks like Mr. Winston decided to 'check out' early...

    Well done, Granny.
