Asleep in bed, the 67-year-old heard a crash in her living room in her home on the Westside.

“I just grabbed the gun and started walking out and said who is it. And that’s when I saw the guy standing right here in the middle of the living room,” said Magnusson. “I’m going, ‘you have got some nerve’. And he had this hoodie on.”

She said the man stood by her Christmas tree, staring at the floor, but there were no presents under the tree. He never said a word, said Magnusson, and neither did she.

She didn’t really have much to say anyway. “They always told me to cock it first. I didn’t cock that thing or nothing. I just pulled the trigger. It was easy as pie,” she said.

She missed him and hit her window, but the robber took off. She said she wasn’t shaking at all during the incident; in fact, she said she was “cool, calm.”
