NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

A 22-year-old woman was being followed in her car by her ex-boyfriend until she pulled into a parking lot. It was then that he got out of his vehicle and approached her car. After exchanging words, he attempted to enter the woman’s car. Fearing for her life, she shot him in self-defense, causing a fatal wound to which he would succumb a short time later. The woman was initially arrested and taken to jail, but was released when it decided she acted in self-defense after evidence of prior domestic violence committed by the ex-boyfriend. At the time of this report, the incident was still under investigation. (Channel3000.com, Madison, Wis., 07/03/20)
