NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

A man and a woman with a history of domestic incidents turned a confrontation into a violent scenario during which the man suffered a gunshot wound. Reports say the incident happened around 9:30 p.m. after the man knocked on the woman’s front door. After she answered, the two began to argue. Ultimately the man shot into her home, breaking a window. Fearing for her life, the woman retrieved her own gun and fired back, hitting him in his thigh. The man then shot at her again, but missed, so he left to seek medical help from a friend. The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment, and was later taken into police custody. The man’s handgun was recovered. The woman was not injured. (; Fresno, CA; 5/5/23)
