An armed mom in California refused to be a victim of her alleged stalker when she shot the man after he entered her home.
“A woman who said she shot a man when he came into her home in East Bakersfield Wednesday morning, told 23ABC she has called the police on him before, but this time shooting him was her only option to protect her and her family,” according to a Wednesday report.
A family member confirmed that the woman knew the home invader, named as 33-year-old Andrew Oldham. Oldham entered her home armed with a hammer before the woman, who was not identified in the report, shot him to protect herself and her children, who were present at the time of the incident.
“The woman told 23ABC she hopes Oldham doesn’t get out of jail ‘for a long time’ and said she was still really shocked about what happened and was surprised how well she handled the situation,” the report said.
According to a neighbor, the woman was calm throughout the entire incident.
Oldam was taken to a local hospital with “minor to moderate” injuries. He will be charged with a litany of crimes upon his release, including robbery, burglary, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
