Jean Wilson is being called a hero. She shot a man that she said was exposing himself and trying to open her front door.

Grandmother tells ABC13 she's sorry for what she did, but she had to protect her kids.

“I shot someone," she said. "I've never shot a gun in my life until then."

Tuesday afternoon, Wilson said that 39-year-old Clarence Johnson, Jr was on his bike, exposing himself as he rode on Cherrydale Street in Houston, Texas.

"I was walking out to the sidewalk to put something in the trash can. He got off his bike and walked after me when I went back to the house. He was rubbing himself," Wilson said.

Jean Wilson has a sign hanging on her front door that says, “Save the drama for your mama.”

Clarence Johnson, a career criminal, learned that lesson the hard way when he threatened Wilson and her family.

“I went inside and got the gun, and told him I was going to shoot if he didn't leave," Wilson said.

He didn't, so Wilson shot, hitting Johnson in the stomach.

Johnson was hospitalized for his stomach wound. An HPD spokesperson said Johnson remains hospitalized but is considered to be in police custody.

Charges including criminal trespass, exposure, and failure to provide information to police have been prepared against him, relating to the incident at the Wilson home.

"I did it for my kids," she said. "I didn't care if I died, but my grandson is disabled and couldn't get away if he got in the house. My 11-year-old great granddaughter was also in the house," she said.

Johnson has a list of charges as far back as 1996, most involving drug possession. In total, he has served just over four years in jail on eight different charges.

This does not include an incident last month in which witnesses said he was unclothed and walking down Bellfort Street. A possession charge of PCP is pending against him in that case.

Wilson regrets having to take such extreme action, but said she would do it again "to save my family."

"I just hope God forgives me for it," she said. "I want to see my (late) daughter in heaven."

Thank God we have our Second Amendment and Texas is an Open Carry State. I don’t even want to think about what could have happened if you Jean wasn’t armed.

Jean, you are a hero in my book! ❤️

Sounds like he’s gonna survive, serve a few years (maybe), and be back out on the streets. Grandma should buy a shotgun so she can splatter him next time if he comes back.

She' should be a hero in everyone's book. What a fine example of protecting your family from that which society will not. Lunatics walking the street!

Glad she shot the idiot. Sounds like with his record, he shouldn't have been on the street.

We live in some strange times. Way to go granny.

She did the right thing. If more people did, we may have less crime. Ultimately, it is our job to protect ourselves and family, as the Police won’t always be around to do it for us.

Donot feel Bad, he chose his own fate.

God Bless you

I am sending Jean Wilson who lives on Cherrydale Street in Houston, Texas, a $10 Wally World Gift card this paycheck.

She can spend it on Food , beer, MD 20/20 or Ammo I don't care.
