She told us she heard a man banging loudly on her front door while another walked around to the back.
"I'm a young woman, I'm pregnant, I'm home alone. I'm not going to answer the door - I mean, I know better," said Alex.
Alex said her husband had just left 20 minutes before. Immediately, she knew something wasn't right and made the split decision to grab her husband's handgun.
"By myself with 911 on one hand and the gun on the other and I'm just a nervous wreck. I don't know what to do ...I yelled and I told the 911 'Oh my gosh, he broke in!'"
Alex said she's never felt comfortable with the idea of using a gun.
Still, her husband insisted on showing her how to use one just a few months ago.
"Nervous...It took me a very long time to pull the trigger and he said, 'when you're in a situation like that- you're not going to think twice,'" recalled Alex.
She said that exactly what happened.
It could have ended very badly. It did not, because she had a gun and was willing to use it. I wonder what Piers Morgan would have to say to her. (Not really.)
