Armed Robbers Break Into Mom's Home, Quickly Realize They Made A Big Mistake


A North Carolina woman is recovering in hospital after getting into a gun fight in her home when two burglars broke in.

Samantha Bunce, 21, was at home with her 4-month-old son Bentley Nov. 3 when the two men kicked down the door, police say. In the ensuing exchange of fire, she suffered at least two gunshot wounds, WSOC reported.

Bunce, a combat medic with the National Guard, was able to get Bentley out of harms way.

“Not a scratch is on him. She brought the matter away from him and definitely protected him. She lay him down in the crib upstairs in our room. He was safe there,” Paul Bunce, Samantha’s husband, told WCNC.

Paul was at work at the time, and the couple’s daughter was at school.

Samantha retrieved Paul’s legally-owned pistol and confronted the burglars.

“I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her, “ Bunce added to WSOC.

Bunce was taken to Carolina Medical Center, where her condition is reportedly stable. Family members say she will require one further surgery.

“We are making progress. I am able to talk to her,” Paul told WCNC. “She is in and out because she is on medication and she has severe pain. We have a four-month-old son, so every couple of hours I am going over there to pump for her.”

The police have not yet released descriptions of any suspects in the case. They have increased patrols in the local area.

“This investigation is going full force ahead,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Captain Chuck Henson said, according to WSOC. “They’re working it very, very hard and I’m very confident that we’ll have an arrest in it at some point.”

Neighbors have come to the family’s aid in the days since the attack.

“It’s a big shock to find something going on like that just a few houses down,” an anonymous resident told WSOC.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family and had raised over $23,000 by Nov. 6.
