Elderly Woman Uses Gun to Ward off Intruder
The 89-year-old Turner said she grabbed a handgun and told the man she would shoot if he came inside. When the man entered, she fired a single shot.
A neighbor called police, who found 37-year old Nelson McAlpine standing on Turner's front lawn. The uninjured McAlpine was arrested on a charge of second-degree burglary.
McAlpine is being held in the Polk County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. It wasn't immediately determined if he has a lawyer.
