Great-granny, 80, got a gun, kills a home intruder who attacked husband

- This 80-year-old great-granny got a gun and wasn’t afraid to use it. Barb Moles shot and killed a home intruder who beat her husband with a crowbar and stabbed him with a knife. She now tells a local televison station she is “not just the typical granny.”

Moles grabbed her gun, a .38-caliber pistol, when she saw her 75-year-old husband bleeding on the floor during a home invasion in their rural Sultan home around 8:30 p.m. on April 28.

Deputies said Steven Sheppard, 25, attacked Leland Moles after breaking into the couple’s home to steal drugs.

Moles, a grandmother of eight and a great-grandmother of three, pulled the trigger four times. “You know how mothers are with their kids,” she said. “That’s the way I am with my husband. I just protect his back. I’m not just the typical granny -- in case you haven’t noticed.”

Moles' husband is stable in the hospital.
