70-year old woman fights off burglar

A burglar in Fayette County was no match for a 70-year-old woman, who shot at him and scared him off. A news release from the Fayette County Sheriff's Department says the suspect broke into the woman's home and punched her in the face around 2 a.m. Thursday and the burglar alarm went off. She grabbed a gun, and when he punched her in the face she shot at the suspect before he ran away. There was no blood that detectives could find, so none of the shots apparently struck the suspect. The release said the victim suffered a minor injury to her head, but she declined medical treatment.
