Semantha Bunce, 21, was at home feeding her four-month-old son Bentley when intruders broke into her home in east Charlotte, North Carolina, on Tuesday morning.
The mother-of-two, a combat medic in the National Guard, quickly took her son to the bedroom and placed him in the crib before grabbing her husband’s gun.
When the men opened fire at her in the stairwell, she then fired back from the bedroom door.
She managed to protect her child and chase away the intruders but was seriously injured in the process.
Her husband Paul, a medical technician, told WSOCTV: ‘I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her.’

http://www.news.com.au/technology/home- ... f200be6eabA 13-year-old South Carolina boy shot and killed a would-be robber with his mother's gun, thwarting an attempted burglary on Tuesday, police say.
The teen, who police are not identifying because he is a minor, fatally shot Lamar Brown, 31, after Brown and 28-year-old Ira Bennett allegedly attempted to break into his Ladson home just before 2 p.m., The Post and Courier reports.
Brown, 31, died at Trident Medical Center of multiple gunshot wounds, Charleston County Chief Deputy Coroner Bobbi Jo O'Neal confirms to PEOPLE.
Police say the boy was home alone and grew suspicious when he saw a vehicle pull up behind the house. He told deputies that a man tried to break in, so he grabbed his mother's pistol and began firing, according to the Post and Courier.
Brown, of Summerville, exchanged gunfire with the boy before fleeing in a car with Bennett. Bennett then allegedly dropped Brown off at the medical center, where he was pronounced dead.
The couple had separated two years earlier after he had been violent towards her, but things had been fairly amicable up to that point.
Something snapped in him that night, and fuelled by alcohol, Fields stormed into the home and broke down the bedroom door where the family were gathered. He stood there and pointed a shotgun at Moore.
“All the kids were screaming, ‘don’t shoot, don’t shoot’, but he did,” Brown said.
The children watched their mother fall backwards, unconscious.
Then Fields started reloading the shot gun.
The children of Rachael Moore have told 60 Minutes about how they protected their mother.
Cameron is just 12 years old but he ran at his father, and somehow managed to grab the shotgun and run out of the room with it.
“I ran forward and elbowed him,” the young boy told 60 Minutes.
Cameron grabbed the gun from his father.
Fields started dragging the children’s mother by the leg and then tried to gouge her eyes out but 14-year-old Jayden protected her.
“I just hopped on his back and started choking him,” Jayden said.
When Cameron returned to the room, he punched Fields in the temple, causing him to fall back. Jayden held on and kept his father in a chokehold until he passed out.
Meanwhile little sister Kaylea, 10, grabbed her mother and got her out of the room, hiding her under a bush outside.
Jayden hopped on his father’s back.
Even little Zane, 4, had the presence of mind to grab his little sister Samantha, 2, and hide under a bed. Then there was an anxious wait for police to arrive.
“Jayden was making sure mum was safe, Kaylea was holding a bandage on her mum’s arm and Cameron was running up and down the driveway, to find the police and direct them to his mum,” Brown said.
During this time, thankfully, their father didn’t attack again.
“The gun had been taken away, he was disarmed and disempowered, they said he seemed to go into a daze ... he was very heavily affected by alcohol,” Brown said.
