When a man exposed himself and tried to enter her house, Granny Jean grabbed her gun to defend her family.
Jean saw the man on his bike. As he approached, he exposed himself to Jean and continued to bike toward her house, despite her warnings that he should leave.
Jean told ABC 13, “Some guy pulled off his pants and pulled his pants open, playing with his thing, and he ran up and I told him to get away from my door, or I will shoot him.”
The man got close enough to leave a footprint on her front steps. She warned him to leave one more time. When the man didn’t heed her warning, she ran and grabbed her gun.
Jean told ABC that she was protecting her disabled grandson and 11-year-old great-granddaughter, adding, “That’s all I got.”
“He kept coming and reached for my door after it was locked,” said Jean, “So I shot through the door.”
The 68-year-old fired at the man, nailing him in the stomach. Although he required surgery, he is likely to survive.
The man, Clarence Johnson Jr., faces charges of public indecency, criminal trespass, and failure to give information to officers. Earlier in the week, Johnson was arrested for drug possession, likely PCP. When cops arrested him for those charges, he was also naked.
Although Jean was happy to protect her family, she thanked Jesus that Johnson did not die from the gunshot wound.
Jean’s neighbor supported her use of her Second Amendment right, telling the Houston Chronicle, “I would have done the same thing if it were my house. Ain’t no telling what else he was going to do or what he’s got. She was protecting her property.”
Although Johnson already knows his charges, it is still unclear as to whether Jean will face repercussions for defending her family.
