A woman attempted to escape her stalker by moving apartments, but the man learned her new address and tracked her down. After he kicked in her front door, she shot him once as he stood on the threshold of her new residence. The stalker was pronounced dead at the scene and police found significant damage to the woman’s door frame. (news4sanantonio.com, San Antonio, Texas, 05/31/22)

A man sped through a parking lot near a birthday party where children were at play. The adults asked him to slow down, but the two-time convicted felon was enraged by the request. He returned to the party, armed with a rifle. He began firing into the crowd when an armed woman drew her own firearm and fatally shot the attacker. The woman had no military or law enforcement training, but rose to the occasion to save herself and others. “She’s just a member of the community who was carrying her firearm lawfully, and instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” said the lieutenant on the scene. The brave woman prevented a mass casualty and is facing no charges for acting with justifiable force.
