Young Mom Shot in Home Invasion Fires Back, Protects Baby

A young mom was shot twice during a home invasion this week, but heroically defended her life and her infant with her husband's gun.

Semantha Bunce, a 21-year-old combat medic with the National Guard, was feeding her 4-month-old son, Bentley, when the nightmare began. Bunce’s husband was at work and their daughter at school when the attackers kicked down the door of the North Carolina home.

Bunce frantically rushed the baby up to the bedroom and grabbed her husband’s legally-owned pistol.

She exchanged fire with the intruders, chasing them off, but was seriously wounded. Bunce remains in the hospital but is in stable condition, reports WCNC. Family members say she will need at least one more surgery.
