Calif. woman, 72, shoots at intruder but misses

Jan Cooper, 72, talks to the media as her husband Bob, 85, left, and Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino listen during a news conference at the Sheriff's Department station in Stanton, Calif., on Tuesday. Jan Cooper showed where the Sheriff's estimated the bullet traveled, based on the size of the suspect and the damage to her sliding glass door, when she scared off an intruder at her home in unincorporated Anaheim on Sunday.
