A woman and her daughter were asleep on the second floor of their home when they heard someone on the roof, and then scale outside the window. The mother retrieved her firearm and watched a figure open the upstairs window and enter the residence. In fear for her life, she shot the intruder. The suspect ran out of the house, which is when the woman recognized him as her ex-boyfriend, from whom she had a protective order. Police found the man on the street suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm. He refused to cooperate with officers but was eventually treated and arrested.

An argument between a man and woman escalated when the man physically assaulted the victim. She ran away from him, but he chased her. The assailant caught up to her and attempted to hit her again. She shot the man in self-defense. The abuser initially forced the woman to lie to the police about the shooting, but she later relayed the true sequence of events to officers. The woman had injuries to her face, but is now safe. (kmov.com, St. Louis, Mo., 03/10/22)
