Officers reported to a residence at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, responding to a call that a man choked his wife during an argument. The woman was able to arm herself with a handgun, and fearing for her life, pointed the gun at her husband and ordered him to leave the house. Although she was able to get her husband to leave without firing the gun, he managed to hit her in the stomach before exiting. Police later stopped the abuser in his vehicle and arrested him.

A woman was home on a Tuesday night when her ex-boyfriend broke into her apartment. In fear for her life, she fired her gun, striking him in the chest but not fatally wounding him. The man was arrested after his hospital stay. Deputies told local reporters they have been called to the home several times for domestic violence. They also said they did not expect to file charges against the woman because it appears she fired in self-defense. (NewsOn6.com, Tulsa, Okla., 02/03/21)
