Many are praising a Colorado mom for the courage she displayed during a home invasion on Wednesday.

On Thursday KKTV released video of a group of armed robbers stealing from a woman’s daughter’s house in Pueblo. Home surveillance video captured three teens slipping through the family’s backdoor and ransacking the house.


As previously reported by Dearly, the woman is the latest example of a brave homeowner who is willing to do anything to protect their family’s possessions.

The unnamed woman told the station that she ran over to her daughter’s house when she noticed her door ajar. She explained:

“I ran back in here I got my pistol and that’s when I walked across the street.”

She added:

“You don’t hurt my loved ones, you know, and without thinking and not even a second thought I just ran over.”

Watch the woman scare off the armed suspects:

The mother turns the tables on the intruders and sent them running off when she showed up at the home with her pistol.

In the video, you can see the woman slowly approaching the situation and warning the criminals. She screams in the clip:

“I have a gun! You better get back!”

She recalled to KKTV:

“I wasn’t afraid, I wasn’t scared, I was maybe it had to have probably been adrenaline.”

Police have identified and arrested one suspect, a 14-year-old, and continue to search for the other two teens. The suspects ran toward the back of the house before getting away in a stolen vehicle.

The boys entered the home with a handgun and stole several valuable items and keys to the homeowner’s car.

An elementary school near the robbery was placed on lockdown, as students were searched by police. If you have any information on who the suspects may be, call Pueblo Police at 719-553-2502.

    Way to go Mom!! Just one more example of why Americans need to be armed and trained. Police cannot be everywhere all the time and response time to an incident is never quick enough. The more people who are armed, trained and willing to step up and stop these criminals in the act the sooner crime will decrease across this country.
    Not only do adults need trained in firearm use and safety, children need to be taught from a young age to understand and respect what a firearm is, like it used to be in rural America up until about 20 years ago. When there were rifles in pickup windows in the school parking lot so students could go right from school to deer or elk or duck hunt there were no school shootings, suicide rates were much lower and respect for life and family were visibly apparent. It all boils down to respect, these days the lack of it!
