911 call released where woman shoots intruder

Posted: Updated:

Tonight we're hearing the 9-1-1 call made by a terrified Maryvale woman, the victim of a home invasion.

But she turned the tables on the unsuspecting burglar and shot him after he entered the bathroom where she was hiding.

The incident happened back in May in a neighborhood fof 67th Ave. & Indian School Road. The whole thing unfolded over the phone while the 9-1-1 call taker was on the line.

911: "Hello, 911"

Caller: "Can you please help me, someone is trying to get in my house"

It was not even 7:30 a.m. when this Maryvale woman was frantically calling for help as she watched a man try to get inside her home.

911: "Ok, stay on the line with me. I've already got officers started. Do not hang up"

Caller: "Ok, I have a gun in my hand, I'm terrified" 

She stayed on the line for what may be the most frightening moments of her life.

Caller: "They are breaking out my window"

911: "Are you in your bedroom?"

Caller: "I'm in my bathroom"

And just a split second later the intruder found her.

Caller: "Ah, ah, ah, (phone buttons pressed) (gunshot), Ah, oh my god"

Things went quiet for a second and the 911 call taker asked the woman what just happened.

Caller: "I shot him"

911: "You shot him?"

Caller: "Yeah"

The woman was bleeding from her face after being punched several times by the intruder. The suspect was laying on the bathroom floor with a gunshot wound.

911: "I've got everybody coming out for help"

Caller: "Please hurry... Don't get up or I'll shoot you again"

911: "What is he saying"

Caller: "He's saying he thought the house was abandoned"

and just as quickly as it started it was over, the police arrived.

20 year-old Michael Lewis was taken into custody, treated at the hospital for his injuries, and then charged with aggravated assault and robbery. The woman had minor injuries from being punched in the face.
