Just before midnight a Huntsville, Ala., woman called 9-1-1 to report that her ex-fiancé had shown up to her house and attacked her. The 31-year-old man had been on probation for violating a protective order, and was known to local law enforcement for his history of domestic violence. The woman had filed the restraining order in 2018 after the man stalked, threatened, injured and stolen from her. Before police arrived, the woman, acting in self-defense, fatally shot her attacker. According to news accounts, she will not face charges. (www.al.com, Huntsville, Ala., 5/4/20)
