A Glendale, Arizona woman was glad to have a pistol holstered to her hip when she was approached early Monday morning by an armed gunman intent on doing harm.
Carolann Miracle, a petite woman who stands at only 4 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 85 pounds, was leaving the Circle K gas station convenience store with her family, when the suspect, Frank Taylor (below), asked if he could have a cigarette and a lighter. After she told him she didn't have any, Taylor pulled a gun on her and her sister.
“He stuck the gun to my neck and said, ‘It’s loaded, bitch, don’t move,’” Miracle told KNXV. ”I think he thought, ‘She’s a little girl. Maybe she doesn’t know how to use her weapon.’”
Miracle, who's father was a Marine, said, “I dropped my soda, released my gun from my holster, cocked it and shot him. Then we ran the opposite way."
