A woman fought back against her abuser of six months, shooting him in self-defense. Witnesses at the scene corroborated the abuse, and police confirmed they had physical evidence of the assault. Upon his release from the hospital, detectives arrested the man, charging him with varying degrees of domestic abuse, sexual battery, child endangerment and attempted second-degree murder. The suspect was held without bond. The shooting was considered to be in self-defense. (katc.com, Crowley, La., 2/19/21)

A man attempted to rob a 23-year-old woman at a gas station in Miami around 7 a.m. However, it turns out he chose the wrong woman, because the would-be-victim fought back with her legal CCW handgun, shooting the thug multiple times before he could harm her. (Local10.com, Miami, Fla., 2/13/21)
