“I have a daughter that’s handicapped and she was asleep on the bottom floor,” Kouba said. “And so for the fear of her being hurt, motherly instincts kick in and, you know, I worked hard for what I’ve got. And you’re not going to come and take it away from me.”
Kouba grabbed the shotgun that was given to her as a mother’s day present and ran out the front door to confront the would be attacker.
“[I cocked the gun], saw that the door had broke down, then I saw him hitting over the fence and head to the creek,” Kouba said.
“[The police] didn’t get him but, you know, I’m sure he’s going to end up in the hospital somewhere. I mean, he’s got buckshot in his butt, I’m sure he’s going to,” she said.
