CITRUS HEIGHTS (CBS13) – A 60-year-old woman used her gun to scare off would-be burglars.

The woman told police she saw several people trying to kick in her door at her home on the 7700 block of Glen Tree Drive in Citrus Heights.

The woman said she heard noises at her front door.  When she looked through the peep hole she saw a man trying to enter.  She also saw more men trying to enter through her back door.

So she grabbed her gun and started shooting.

Police did not find any suspects but did find evidence of an attempted burglary.

The woman was pretty shaken up but not hurt.
