A strong woman with a gun is a criminal’s worst nightmare — and that’s exactly what one suspect encountered during a robbery attempt in Memphis, Tennessee.
The suspected robber allegedly attempted to hold up a man at gunpoint at his home. What he didn’t count on was the man’s wife who emerged from the house with her own gun.
Home surveillance footage captured the entire scary incident.
“I advise you to back the f**k up,” the woman is heard saying in the video. “Get the f**k out of here!”
Seconds later, a gunshot rings out. It was described as a “warning shot” in news reports.
The woman’s uncle, who was inside the home during the incident, told FOX13 his niece “ain’t scared of nothing.”
“She said she didn’t want to kill him, but when he fired back at us after she fired the warning shot,” the uncle, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said. “She said she was trying to hit him then but didn’t.”
In the video, the robbery suspect can be seen grabbing something inside his waistband. The uncle says that “something” was a gun.
After being confronted by the woman, the would-be robber ran toward the back of the house, according to Memphis police. He remains at large, but police are actively searching for him.
“Thank the good Lord he was watching out for all of us,” the victim said.
Hopefully, the police will catch this criminal before he strikes again.
