A 911 recording of an attempted break-in in Vanderburgh County, shows just how close the suspect was to being shot.
It happened Saturday night at a home along Breckinridge Drive.
The Vanderburgh Co. Sheriff's Dept. says a 21-year-old man tried to break-in through a patio door.
Waiting inside was the homeowner who was armed and took action.
Deputies say the bullet went through the glass door that the suspect was trying to break in through and they say he didn't try once, but twice to break inside.
It was during that first alleged attempt, when the sheriff's department says the homeowner grabbed her gun, took aim and fired at the man, who was using a rock to try to break through her back-door.
21-year-old Trent Alan Thompson, of Newburgh, is very lucky she didn't.
He was arrested after deputies say he tried to break-in a second time, while deputies were inside.
Thompson is out on bond. He faces preliminary charges of residential entry, criminal mischief, and public intoxication.
