Granny's Got a Gun and Not Afraid to Use it!

Posted: Updated:

72 year old Jan Cooper who lives near Anaheim knew exactly what to do when she heard her dog barking and saw someone outside her window. She grabbed her .357 magnum, loaded it and called 911.

That  was Sunday, 12:30 am.  The 911 operator listens as Jan describes the movement of the person from yard, through her side gate, into her backyard  She was about to turn on her porch light when she sees a man in dark clothing through the sliding glass door. The door slides open slightly and Jan shoots her gun once. That was enough to send the man running and eventually into handcuffs. OC sheriffs deputies arrested 31 year old Brandon Alexander Perez for attempted burglary.

Take a listen to her 911 call. Then compare her voice when she speaks normally vs. The way she sounded yelling at the burglar.

And this footnote, also in the home, Jan's husband Bob. He is 86 and a highly decorated WWII vet. Reporters asked Jan if she'd ever pointed her gun at someone before.  She said no, but her husband jokingly pointed to himself.
