A Dougherty County woman’s workday started with a shootout with a couple of armed robbers. She was grazed by a bullet, but she’s sure she shot that gunman too. Dougherty County Police are now looking for the two robbers.
Dihanna McCullock says she is a fighter, and Thursday she proved it. Two men, one armed with a knife and one with a gun, attacked her. She always wears a gun on her hip for protection, and she says there is no doubt it saved her life.
About 8:30 Thursday morning Dihanna McCullock went into her office at the Paradise Village Mobile home park off Holly Drive, where she is the manager, and suddenly was in a fight for her life– against a man who had broken in through a back window.
“He was in one of the rooms and had a knife, and tried to stab me with a knife, and so we fought,” McCullock said.
Another man, wearing some sort of badge on his shirt, had tried to talk to McCullock before she went into her office, but she went inside. Now while she was fighting the man with a butcher knife, that man also burst into her office with a gun, and started shooting.
“He shot. And I shot him. Wherever he’s at he’s wounded, somewhere,” McCullock said.
McCullock carries ‘the Judge’ in a holster. It’s a pistol that shoots a shotgun shell as well as .45 caliber bullet. McCullock said the robber’s bullet just grazed her right arm. She fired back a shotgun blast at point blank range.
Are you sure you hit him? “Yes, I’m positive. I’m positive. I’m a good shooter. Definitely a good shooter. My husband taught me well.”
