Lachelle Hudgins had just parked outside her home in southwest Houston around 2:30 a.m. when the suspected robbers reached through her driver’s side window, according to KTRK-TV. She told police several other men were also near her parking space.
Hudgins grabbed her gun from her purse and fired the only two shots left in her gun, hitting one of the men.
“It was all I had in my gun. I shot until I couldn’t shoot anymore,” Hudgins said. “I saved my life.”
All of the men ran away when Hudgins fired and the wounded man was found a short time later on the other side of the apartment complex.
He underwent surgery and is expected to face aggravated robbery charges,KTRKreported.
