The right to bear arms came in handy on Tuesday morning when a woman shot and killed an intruder in her bedroom in Clearwater, Florida.

According to the Clearwater Police Department, the victim woke up to find suspect Justin Wright in her bedroom around 9 a.m. and fired a single gunshot that killed Wright after he attacked her, WFLA reports.

"She was able to reach out and call 911 during this attack, but the attack persisted," Clearwater Police Chief Daniel Slaughter told the outlet. "At which time, she was able to retrieve a gun that she had lawfully."

Wright lived on the same street as the victim, according to WFLA.

Clearwater police told WFLA that they are investigating the incident to determine if the shooting was justifiable homicide but believe that the woman's injuries were consistent with self-defense.

"We certainly don't just chalk it up to self-defense and move on," Slaughter said. "There is an awful lot of work that has to occur. The crime scene is going to be investigated just like any other death or murder or homicide or as in this particular case, potentially a justified homicide."

Authorities said that they did not find any weapons on the now deceased suspect, according to WTSP.
