A man is in the hospital suffering from life-threatening injuries after police say he was shot while breaking into a Newport News home.
“It was either him or me,” said Allie. “I have my daughter to protect.”
Allie wasn’t going to let anyone hurt her daughter.
She is a wife of a James City County police officer who didn’t want to give her full name, but she did tell NewsChannel 3 how she took action Wednesday night.
She says it happened at around 10:30pm, about an hour after her husband left for work.
“Someone started banging on the door and messing with the door knob,” said Allie. “He was screaming like, ‘Let me in baby, we are okay let me in, they are out to kill me,’ I looked through the peephole and I didn’t recognize who it was, so I latched the top lock, ran to the back, called 911 and got my gun.
