A man with violent tendencies snapped when he began accusing his girlfriend and her mother of eating his honeybun snacks. The argument escalated, and the women hid from the hostile boyfriend in a bedroom. Undeterred, he kicked in the door and started throwing things at his girlfriend and her mother while approaching them in an aggressive manner. The mother, in fear for her and her daughter’s lives, fired a handgun at the man, grazing him and forcing him to flee. Police found him later the same day in stable condition. The Jones County sheriff said in a press release, "The preliminary investigation leads us to believe that this is a case of self-defense and justified given the pattern of behavior by [the suspect]." The brave mother and her daughter have since filed charges against the violent boyfriend. (impact601.com, Jones County, Miss., 05/14/21)

A woman who was one month pregnant was assaulted by her boyfriend. There were children in the home when he attacked her, and fearing for her life, she shot the man multiple times. The boyfriend died, and the woman was taken to the hospital for injuries consistent with assault. (abc13.com, Harris County, Texas, 06/10/21)
