Dallas police said a woman shot at two people who kicked in the door to her house late Wednesday morning, killing one.
The shooting occurred at about 11:30 a.m. in the 7200 block of Concordia Drive.
Dallas police said the woman was home alone when she heard a noise -- two men had kicked in the front door of her house.
She confronted the two men as they reached the second-floor landing and shot at them several times, police said.
The intruders ran out the front door, and one of the men collapsed from a gunshot wound, police said.
He was transported to Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The other man is still on the run.
Investigators said a gun recovered at the home indicates that at least one of the intruders was armed.
Charles Brown, the father of the 22-year-old woman who fired the shots, said he is proud of his daughter.
"Yeah, it is -- it's puffed out because I'm real proud of her because I taught her that," he said. "I taught my girls that -- to defend themselves when someone come to hurt them, and apparently she listened."
