SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

Armed with a gun and ready to shoot, a Shawnee woman defended her home as man broke down her door. It happened in broad daylight and she didn't back down.

Pam Loman and her husband, James, say they've lived on Homer Lane in Shawnee for over 10 years and have never had any problems. But early Friday afternoon, while Pam was home alone, she quickly figured out, three men outside her home were up to no good.

"I still feel queasy sick at my stomach, a little shaky, a little nervous," Pam said.

Pam was cleaning her home Friday afternoon when she heard someone knocking at her front door.

"One was knocking on the door, but there was two in the car. So I thought that was kind of strange, and they looked a little scary," she said.

Pam says the knocking got harder, to just outright banging.

"So my instinct was to go get a gun. I don't know why, I never in my life felt like I needed to go get a gun," Pam said.

She stood near her kitchen, just steps away from the front door, with both hands on her .32-caliber pistol.

And just all of a sudden, with one kick, he knock the door completely in. The frame came flying down. Things came flying everywhere," Pam recalled. "And he saw that I had the gun, and he grabbed the door handle and pulled the door shut."

Pam immediately called police, and her husband, who rushed home from work.

"I was scared to death, because, I got her phone call. She was hysterical, and before I can get anything back, the phone went dead. That's what really scared me," James said.

Now, they're hoping pictures taken from motion sensor trail cams hidden on their property will help police identify, and catch the suspects.

"I felt threatened, and I feel like if he would have stepped a foot in, I would have shot him," Pam said.

Pam says police are going to try to use imaging technology to see if they can enhance the pictures of the suspect. For now though, police are still looking for the three men.
