A woman turned the tables on three armed robbers, locking one of them in a choke hold before being shot in the face multiple times with a BB gun.“He emptied that BB gun in my face,” said home invasion victim Jocylynn Ashburn during the preliminary hearing for alleged armed robbers Clayton Lance, Bonnie R. Lovell, and Ronnie Kloosterman. “He intended to hurt me.”The victim said it was Lance who shot her in the face with the gun, noting she recognized him because he had worked for her in the past. She believes Lance thought the house was empty and had planned to sneak in and steal valuables before anyone got home.“I heard a noise,” Ashburn said, noting she was in her bedroom and got up to see what was going on.
