As reported, an Albuquerque, NM woman used her gun to fend off a daytime burglar.

Police say that the woman called 911 just before noon to report an in-progress break in at her west side home.  While she was still on the phone with 911, the woman reportedly fired one shot in self defense.  Police are said to have arrived to find a suspect with a gunshot wound to the head laying on the woman’s front lawn.  The suspect was reportedly identified as 19 year old Frank Castillo, who was listed in critical condition at a local hospital. Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputy Gregg Marcantel reportedly stated that there was reason to believe that there was a co-conspirator, and that police are seeking the driver of a suspected get-away car that drove away after the self defense shooting.

Yet again we have a woman who was able to defend herself with a gun.  Had this woman not been armed, she could have ended up like this woman or this woman – victimized in her own home.  Instead, thanks to her self action actions, she was unharmed and a suspect is in custody.
