From THE REGISTER:
A 92-year-old Florida woman refused a kiss by her 53-year-old neighbour responded by pumping four rounds from a semi-automatic pistol into his house. Helen Staudinger took a bit of a shine to Dwight Bettner after he moved into a rented pad six months ago.
The former law enforcement officer and boilermaker told Marion County Sheriff's deputies that Staudinger had previously threatened to shoot him when he told her he had a girlfriend.
She "didn't follow through" on that occasion, but things got a bit livelier on Monday when she turned up at his house and refused to leave.
According to Bettner, she said: "I want a kiss before I leave."
He declined, telling the amorous nonagenarian to to take hike.
Shortly after, while he was on the phone to his dad, Bettner heard shots. One round went through a window, "spraying him with glass".
The pistol-packing granny had also fired at his new Mitsubishi 3000GT.
