A burglar who broke into a home through a baby’s room window in Indianapolis quickly regretted it when the mother engaged him in a shootout and came out on top.
The intruder certainly had evil intentions as he not only carried a gun that he fired first, but had zip ties and a walkie-talkie on his person.
After firing first, the mother returned fire and struck the criminal three times.
Via Fox 59:
According to police dispatchers, officers received the call around 12:10 p.m. from a home in the 3200 block of West Banta Road. Family members told FOX59 that an infant was in the home when it happened. A mother heard the burglar get into the home through a window and then took out her pistol.
“She heard the window get busted and she called her husband and said I think somebody’s breaking in the house,” said Edsel Ballard, the woman’s father.
“He broke in through the baby’s window, ok, and when he was coming out the door, my sister was coming out her bedroom door, he aimed and shot at her first and then she shot him,” said Eddie Ballard, the woman’s brother.
The woman exchanged gunfire with the burglar, family members said, and the intruder was hit multiple times. He was taken to an Indianapolis hospital, police said. Dispatchers said the intruder was also carrying zip ties and a walkie-talkie.
This is yet another case of a gun owner properly exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms and defend themselves and their family.
But it’s the sign outside this mother’s home that has everyone talking. A sign that the intruder may have seen had he gone towards the front door instead of breaking into the baby’s window. A sign that in retrospect, he probably wishes he did see.

You can’t say the man wasn’t warned.
Several Twitter users mocked the hospitalized criminal with one asking, “Have we confirmed whether the burglar is illiterate?”
Another said, “I guess this dirtbag can’t read.”
Both the mother and infant were unharmed during the incident.
