A grandson shot an intruder that jumped his grandmother’s fence with a pellet gun this past July 4. The Yakima Herald published a story about the incident.
The attempted home invasion occurred at a residence in the 300 Block of South Sixth Street. The incident happened at around 4:30 pm ET on the Fourth of July. It started when the 20 something year old suspect threatened the 60 something year old grandmother who lived at the home.
Yakima Police Department Lt. Shawn Boyle said that the woman knew the man. But, she refused to let him onto her property.
The suspect then tried to climb over a fence on the woman’s property. That’s when the woman’s grandson shot the suspect with a pellet gun. After arriving, authorities assessed the situation. They sent the suspected intruder to a nearby hospital.
The attempted intruders injuries are considered non-life threatening. Lt. Boyle said that they detained the woman and her grandson that afternoon while the investigation continued.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
