Brittany Morse and her four children woke up at their home in Taft, California, expecting a quiet Sunday morning.
It wasn’t long before one of her kids noticed Brittany’s laptop was missing. It was definitely strange; she’d just been using her computer the night before.
At around 9 a.m., the family started looking for the missing laptop. During the search, Brittany’s 7-year-old daughter went to look inside the garage.
That’s where the little girl first saw the strange man hiding. Terrified, she slammed the door on the lurker and ran back to Brittany screaming.
But this mom was about to prove she was a lot stronger and braver than anyone could have imagined.
In the harrowing surveillance footage below, Brittany gathers her kids and shuffles them into a room — then proceeds to grab the gun she’d recently purchased.
Watch the video below to see what she was able to do next.
As it turned out, the intruder — a 25-year-old male — had been hiding inside the Morse household for nearly three hours before Brittany’s daughter found him in the garage.
After local police arrived, they assessed the situation and said they’d never seen a case like it before.
