Ohio woman fires gun to chase off attacker



Published: Fri, September 14, 2012 @ 9:41 a.m.

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — A 68-year-old southeastern Ohio woman tells sheriff’s deputies that she chased off a masked attacker by pulling out a pistol and firing shots at him.

Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly says 68-year-old Tamara Snyder was attacked in her driveway Wednesday night. She said she was hit in the head, knocked to the ground and kicked by someone wearing a black ski mask.

Snyder then pulled a .22-caliber derringer and fired two shots at her attacker, who fled. It wasn’t known if the person was hit.

The Athens Messenger reports that the attacker did not speak to Snyder and nothing was stolen. Kelly told the newspaper he thinks it’s an isolated incident.
