Elderly Woman Shoots Male Intruder

05-19-06 - An 81-year-old woman says she shot a man who was breaking into her home Thursday night, and now deputies in Choctaw County are looking for the two suspects. It happened around 6 p.m. just a few miles north of Hugo.

Deputies are not releasing the woman’s name, but say she was home alone when two intruders broke in. She shot one of them, but they both managed to get away.

Authorities do not have much to go one, but they do know both intruders were male, between the ages of 18 and 30. The woman did not suffer any injuries.
