By: Lucius O'Dell

A 79-year-old woman in Georgia took matters into her own hands when a man broke into her home and attempted to burglarize her residence.

Fox News reports:

In the midst of the alleged break-in, the woman shouted to the suspect, “I got something for you” before shooting a weapon, according to ABC News.

She later reportedly fired off a second shot after the individual managed to get inside and up to another floor of her home.

"I'm waiting on ya. When you come down them stairs, I'm gonna blow your damn brains out. I'm waiting,” she shouted before taking the shot, according to ABC News.

“Deputies arrived on the scene and the suspect was apprehended without incident,” a Jackson County Sheriff's Office press release said. “He was identified as Hans E. Rogers, age 20, with a Powder Springs address. Rogers was charged with Home Invasion and Burglary. The home owner and another occupant were unharmed during the incident.”
