A Highland, Illinois woman ended a home invasion early Sunday morning…by shooting the invader.

Police Chief Terry Bell tells KMOX the 33 year old suspect from Troy, Illinois approached one of the sisters when she stepped out of the apartment on Eagle Way to smoke a cigarette. The man forced his way in and demanded money.  While he was choking one woman the other took a Derringer pistol from a drawer and shot the invader who’s hospitalized in critical condition.

The two women sustained minor injuries.
