BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
A burglar got more than he bargained for when he targeted the wrong house in Jefferson County.
The woman he was trying to steal from fought back and shot him.
"I was awakened with a gun in my face hollering 'give me all yo money and give me all yo jewelry' and I screamed 'I don't have any money and I don't have any jewelry,'" the victim, who does not want to be identified, said. "That didn't satisfy [him]. Then he asked me about everyone in my house during this time I'm fumbling to get my gun. He pushed me down. I got up fought back."
