Macon - Authorities in Georgia say a grandmother foiled a robbery attempt by two armed men by getting into a shootout with them, wounding one man.

Police told The Telegraph that Lulu Campbell had just dropped off her grandson at her daughter's house early on Saturday morning when someone demanded money outside her car, threatening to shoot her.

Campbell says the man fired at her, missing. The 57-year-old fired back, striking him in the chest. Her truck sustained eight bullet holes in the bonnet, one in the grille. Both front side windows were destroyed. The second man fled after she shot at him.

Campbell, who owns convenience stores and petrol stations, is always armed.

Police say 32-year-old Brenton Lance Spencer has been hospitalised and was charged with aggravated assault and attempted armed robbery.
