The 911 call starts out with the woman, who said she was taught how to use a .38-caliber handgun by her late husband, alerting the dispatcher that someone was breaking into the house.
The dispatcher tried to calm her and said police were en route, and the woman said she had the gun in her hand. Tensions rose until the woman confirmed that someone had entered her home.
"They broke my arcadia door," she said.
The audio continues until a gunshot is heard.
