Self-defense stories are usually fun, but this one is particularly delightful.
Intruders shoot man; girlfriend fires back
A Eugene woman said she fired several shotgun blasts at two intruders who had sneaked into her home early Friday morning and shot her boyfriend in the leg.
Eugene police said the woman and her boyfriend awoke to sounds of a break-in and encountered the intruders. The boyfriend struggled with the two men in the backyard and was shot, police said.
The woman said she then grabbed a loaded 12-gauge shotgun and hit at least one of the intruders with the stock before they fled.
“I was not going to let them just walk away from my home after shooting my significant other,” she said. She was so angry, she said, “I released the safety and started uncasing shells on them. I shot them all the way down the street.”
During her interview with The Register-Guard, the woman challenged the robbers to return to her house.
“I dare you to come back,” she said. “If you want more, this girl is happy to give it to you.”
