A mother was able to fight off two gunmen who forced their way inside her home in north Nashville.

The woman was at her home on Trailwood Court when two men claiming to be police officers knocked on her door.

When she opened the door, two men who had their faces covered rushed inside and held her at gunpoint. Her daughter reportedly witnessed the whole thing.

The woman said they demanded that she turn over a safe. She told them she didn’t have a safe and started fighting them.

The men then allegedly dragged her outside and pistol-whipped her. During the altercation, she was able to grab one of their weapons and fire shots at the men, who took off running.

One of her neighbors, Raymond Davidson, has a message for anyone who thinks about robbing somebody.

“Either way, they’re wrong. You know, people work hard for everything they get nowadays, and I don’t care where you live at, or who you are, it’s wrong,” he said.

The woman is being treated for cuts and bruises at the hospital. Her child is said to be OK.

So far, no arrests have been made in connection to the home invasion.
