A 51-year-old grandmother shot eight bullets at two men who attacked her outside her house in Detroit.
Paris Ainsworth, a grandmother of four, had just arrived home from work when she saw two men approaching her as she was getting out of her car.
Ainsworth, a little suspicious, put her licensed .45 calibre handgun in her pocket and got out of the car.
As soon as the two men started shooting at her, she pulled out the gun and promptly fired eight bullets.
"He said, 'Don't pull it,' and he shot immediately," Ainsworth told WDIV 4. "I said, 'You mother f****r,' and pulled out [my gun] and started shooting. One, he was right in the middle of the street. The other one was right here on the [side of the street]."
Ainsworth was reportedly shot three times in the side and once in the hand in the shootout.
One of the assailants was reportedly shot in both of his legs.
"The victim told officers that she fired her handgun at the suspects when they attempted to rob her and did not know if the shots took effect," Detroit police said in a press release.
"While at the scene, another police run was called in from the hospital stating that a male was shot. The officers went to the hospital and the male that was shot matched the description given by the victim."
Ainsworth has a weapons permit and she owns two handguns. She was the victim of another attack by an armed mugger about ten years ago, and she is a firm believer in self-defence.
"If I wouldn't have had my gun I would be dead today," she said. "This is ludicrous, the way that they are just robbing and trying to take stuff from people, and killing people," she said.
Ainsworth has been dubbed by her siblings "Rambo" — after Sylvester Stallone's renewed movie.
