Was this 80 year old great grandma right for shooting and killing a home invader that attacked her husband? Or do you think she should have waited for the Police to do that? Here’s how it all unfolded…
Barb Moles shot and killed a home intruder who beat her husband with a crowbar and stabbed him with a knife. She now tells a local televison station she is “not just the typical granny.”
“You know, never in my whole life did I ever anticipate having to take another life — especially at age 80,” Moles told KOMO-TV in Seattle, Wash., last week. “Give me a break here!”
Moles grabbed her gun, a .38-caliber pistol, when she saw her 75-year-old husband bleeding on the floor during a home invasion in their rural Sultan home around 8:30 p.m. on April 28.
Deputies said Steven Sheppard, 25, attacked Leland Moles after breaking into the couple’s home to steal drugs.
KOMO reported that when Sheppard encountered Barb Moles, he said one word: “Gun.”
“I was just intent upon stopping him,” she told the station. “I didn’t have any other thought in my head. I just knew I had to stop him.”
