Police in Council Bluffs, Nebraska, are looking for information on a man who barged into a woman’s home yesterday evening and shot her.
The victim, Sally Huffman, was at home alone with her cat Smokey when a man knocked on the door asking for “Antoine”. When she said she didn’t know anyone by that name, he barged into her home and pointed his gun at her chest.
That’s when Smokey ran across the room and distracted him. The man lowered his gun and shot Huffman in the leg and then took off.
Huffman believes her cat very well may have saved her life!
