Decatur, AL – Ethel Jones, 69, was asleep in her bed early Monday morning when she heard a noise – it sounded as if someone was trying to get into her home. She grabbed the .38-caliber snubnose revolver she keeps under her pillow and headed for the relative safety of her bathroom. When the noise subsided, Ethel crept out of her bathroom, only to be confronted by a stranger standing in her bedroom. She couldn’t see his face, only the penlight he held in his hand. No matter – she aimed for that and started firing. “I shot three times, and he ran away bleeding,“ said the pistol packin’ grandma. “Then I called 911.” The bleeding stranger with a new hole in his gut was 18-year-old Michael Bynum. He ran screaming to his own home, just 200 yards away, and was transported to the hospital by private vehicle. An arrest warrant was issued for Bynum on charges of 2nd degree burglary. After his release from the hospital, he was jailed and bond was set at $10,000. When authorities learned that Bynum was on probation for a prior burglary conviction, his probation was immediately revoked, as was his bond. “I hope this will make people have second thoughts before they break into a home in our neighborhood and stop some of the crime we’ve had around here,” she said. “I hate it happened, but it’s just something that couldn’t be helped, he should have known better.” Interview with Ethel, my new hero, can be seen here.Tags: Alabama, Burglary, Shooting
