SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Police say an elderly woman grabbed a gun to protect herself when a man broke into her house early Wednesday in Spokane.

She fired a warning shot and was holding the man at gunpoint in her living room when police arrived.

KXLY reports the man tried to run away and fought with officers who subdued him with the help of a police dog.

The man also is suspected of breaking windows earlier at a nearby business.
