On Tuesday, a 68-year-old Texas grandmother shot a man who exposed himself and was trying to enter her home.

The feisty grandmother, identified only as “Granny Jean,” saw the man riding his bike towards her house and he exposed himself to her.

She warned him multiple times to leave but he ignored her warnings so Jean pulled out her gun, Independent Journal Review reported last week.

“Some guy pulled off his pants and pulled his pants open, playing with his thing, and he ran up and I told him to get away from my door, or I will shoot him,” Jean said.

“He kept coming and reached for my door after it was locked. So I shot through the door,” Jean said.

The granny said she was protecting her disabled grandson and 11-year-old great-granddaughter. “That’s all I got,” she said.

Jean shot him in the stomach and while he did need surgery, he is expected to recover.

The perpetrator, identified as Clarence Johnson Jr., faces charges of public indecency, criminal trespass, and failure to give information to officers.

This was Johnson’s second arrest in a week. The first arrest was for drug possession, probably PCP, and he was arrested while naked.

Jean was grateful that Johnson didn’t die from the wound, but she was also glad that she was able to protect her family.

Neighbors of Jean’s said: “I would have done the same thing if it were my house. Ain’t no telling what else he was going to do or what he’s got. She was protecting her property.”
