Female Former ROTC “Sharpshooter” With Rifle Chases Off Armed Robbers In Her Yard

Marilyn Williams of Clovis, California is being hailed a hero after she chased off two armed robbers trying to evade police and got them to drop the loot. She was also interviewed by Fox and Friends as well (video below).

After the two punks robbed an elderly couple’s home, they were quickly pursued by cops. When Williams heard the commotion she came outside and saw the thugs hopping her fence.

While no military sharpshooter, it turns out that Williams is a former high school ROTC member who once earned a sharpshooter medal. Hey, whatever works to keep people safe, right? More guns, less crime.

Williams was there with her rifle, in position to fire, when one of the suspects hopped over her fence during his getaway.

“I kept telling at him: I’m gonna shoot you!” she told a local reporter.

Her actions forced the criminals to take off their masks, drop their guns and the jewelry they stole!
