Texas Grandmother Shoots Intruder

This, of course, is all over the AM talk shows and the Sean Hannity show.  A Texas grandmother puts a couple bullets into an intruder, non-lethal by choice.  I don’t know if I would have been so nice.  Arlington is just maybe a 10 minute drive from where I live.  I have been considering interviewing her for, but as you can imagine, she has been a very busy lady.

ARLINGTON, Texas – A woman found evidence on her porch that someone might have broken into her house when she let her dogs out for a walk early Wednesday morning. The woman’s granddaughter also said she heard noises from inside the house. Susan Gaylord Buxton, 66, retrieved her .38 caliber handgun and searched her house. She found a man hiding in a closet, covered by a coat.

The man, 22-year-old Christopher Lessner, lunged for the gun, and, police said, Buxton shot him once in the leg. She fired a second shot, which missed, according to police.

Arlington police said Lessner is expected to be charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest, criminal mischief and criminal trespass. Buxton was not expected to face charges.
