The video your looking at was spliced together. It looks more dramatic than what actually happened.
The criminals kicked the door in and were wandering around downstairs for over a minute before the lady shows up.
It looks like she came downstairs to see what the noise was and clearly surprised them.
When she does appear the guy with the baseball cap points a gun at her and starts approaching her.
That's when she lifts up her gun and fires. It looks like the guy did not expect her to be armed.
Then two of the guys duck and run out. She takes off after them and almost runs into the guy running out of the side room.
He was just firing at a direction he thought the shots were coming from. If he had his crap together he had a clear shot at her for a few seconds, she
practically runs into his barrel. She didn't even look in the direction of the side room to clear it. She was chasing after the first two guys.
Granted she might be brave but also very lucky.
The whole gun fight was over in less than 10 seconds.
To me it's a real good example of what not to do in a home invasion.
Being armed is great but not if your best John Wayne charge gets your killed.
Clear the room first.
All the videos from the different cameras are over on Live leak if you want to see them.
Not sure what the rules are for posting video from there so you'll have to dig it up if you want to see the whole thing.
As far as her having boxes of stuff around the news report said she runs a restaurant. A lot of mom and pop places get their supplies from Costco and
then take it to the restaurant. Why pay for storage on something that will be used up in 3 days?
