Hialeah woman, 80, said she went after gunman after he mugged her daughter

Maternal instincts don’t fade away, even at age 80.

Hialeah grandmother Josefa Lopez said she felt no fear earlier this week when she used the wrath of an angry mother and her aluminum cane to fight off a gunman who beat and robbed her 61-year-old daughter.

At one point, the man fired a shot but missed the enraged octogenarian, who turns 81 on Thursday. Speaking in Spanish from the porch of her home Wednesday, yards from the scene of the incident, Lopez said she blindly charged against the gunman after seeing her daughter lying on the circular driveway, bleeding from her face.

Countdown to the Holidays. Are you ready? We can help!

I thought she was dead, Lopez said. I yelled at [the gunman], ‘I am going to kill you, [son of a b—-]!’ I wasn’t myself. To me, she was dead. — via redwolf.newsvine.com
