A Pennsylvania woman thwarted a home invasion on Sunday by shooting burglary suspects who entered her Philadelphia apartment.

The Philadelphia Police Department says officers responded to a 1:34 a.m. report of a shooting in Germantown on Sunday morning. When authorities arrived, they found the woman standing on Germantown Avenue near one of the suspects, who was injured and lying on the ground.

The woman told police that four unknown men entered her apartment before she opened fire.
