LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Friday, Jan. 4, 2013
A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.
The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
Husband Donnie Herman said.
"My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner,"
