A terrified mother of young twins dealt directly with a home invader, as she shot him multiple times in the face and neck in order to protect her children.

The Loganville, Georgia woman, who has not been identified, was at home with her 9-year-old twins on Friday afternoon when the doorbell rang.

Thinking it was just a door-to-door salesperson, she didn’t answer.

The person then continued to ring the bell, and eventually began prying open the door with a crowbar.


The terrified mother quickly acted, picking up her handgun and her children and retreating to the attic.

The burglar, identified as Paul Ali Slater by police, went through every room until he reached the attic.

“The perpetrator opens that door,” said Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. “Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver.”

The terrified mother reportedly fired all six rounds, missing only once. The other five shots hit Slater in the neck and face.


“The guy’s face down, crying. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again,” said Sheriff Chapman to the Atlanta Jouranl-Constitution.

Slater miraculously managed to get up and to his car which was parked outside, but wasn’t able to get far as his injuries caused him to crash into a wooded area.


He was found by sheriff’s deputies, bleeding heavily in a driveway on the block.

“I’m dying. Help me,” he reportedly begged the deputies.

He was taken to Gwinnet Medical Center for treatment of the gunshot wounds, and he is expected to survive.

WSBTV reported that Slater has a long criminal history and was released from prison in August.


The woman’s husband, Donnie Herman, is just glad his wife and kids are safe.


“My wife is a hero,” said Mr. Herman. “She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner.”
