A man went to his ex-girlfriend’s house to pick up some of his things when the pair started arguing. The man drew a handgun and chased the woman around her house saying, “I’m about to mess things up.” He cornered her in the bedroom, but the woman was able to access her AR-15. The man fired at her and she shot back. A bullet grazed his head and he fled the scene. Police located the perpetrator and sent him to jail after being treated at the hospital for the head wound. There were children in the house at the time, but none were hurt. (wkbn.com, Youngstown, Ohio, 08/10/20)
