"When I saw three of them, I knew I was in a lot of trouble. I said, 'The TV is the most expensive thing I own. You could take that through the front door and go with it,' and they said, 'No, the money, the money,'" said Erin.
Erin said she had to think fast as the men headed towards her son's room. The mom said she distracted the men as she rushed to get her gun.
"Somehow the way it happened, as they were going down the hallway, I told them sometimes I keep money under the mattress, which is not true. But I needed to get to where my gun was," she said.
At this point, Erin said she prayed for something to distract them so she could grab her gun. She said her prayers were answered when her dogs ran in and started barking.
"They all turned around and looked. I grabbed my gun, cocked it, I turned and shot him right in the stomach," said Erin.
