83 Yr. Old Woman Uses Gun To Scare Off Burglar, But Is Then Shot & Killed By Police in Her Backyard Reply


An 83 year old woman in VA allegedly used a handgun to fire a warning shot to scare off a burglar late at night. The woman, Delma Towler, also called police to report the break in.

Before police arrived, Towler fired the warning shot and then tried to make her way across her backyard to her nearby sister’s house, while still holding her gun.

When police arrived on the scene they saw the armed woman in the backyard and at some point shot and killed her. Police say the woman was uncooperative and pointed her gun at the officers. Her family isn’t buying the story.

According to NY Daily News, her son, Robert Barbour said, “Mom ain’t gonna hurt no police officer or nobody else. She was a good Christian woman and she wouldn’t hurt a soul.”
