On Wednesday morning two men kicked in the front door of a 22-year-old Texas woman's home, and rushed up the stairs. She took cover behind her bed, and as they forced their way into her room, she shot at them.

Her father taught her and the rest of the family to shoot, and defend themselves after their home had been broken into previously.  Because his daughter works at night, and is home alone during the day, he had her keep a gun close to her bed.

Dallas Police say that she was home alone and heard noise downstairs as the men kicked in the door.  She shot several times hitting at least one.  Both men ran out of the house, and one collapsed shortly after. He was later pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital.  The other suspect is still running.

Police recovered a pistol at the scene that indicated the men were armed.
