Pistol packing grandma scares off burglar

A burglar got more than he bargained for when he tried to break into the home of an armed grandmother in Anaheim.
A burglar got more than he bargained for when he tried to break into the home of an armed grandmother in Anaheim.

Jan Cooper called 911 and was on the phone while the crook was still inside. 

On the 911 recording, Cooper is heard yelling: " Back up you son of a ____, Back up! Get out of here! Get the hell out of here!"

Cooper fired a shot at burglar to protect herself and her wheelchair-bound husband. 

Cooper says she's normally a passive person. "I am a Christian woman and I'm very proud of it and I don't curse, but after I shot, rage took hold," said Cooper.

Cooper says she's owned a gun since she was a teenager. 

The burglary suspect, Brandon Perez, was not hit by the shot and was later taken into custody.
