NRA Women The Armed Citizen Drawing A Pistol

A woman who was being struck with solid objects by another woman and a man fired a gun at them in order to protect herself. The male alleged assailant was hit in the chest and taken by ambulance to a hospital; the female alleged assailant was shot in the face and taken by Life Flight to the hospital. The woman who fired the gun also accidentally shot herself in the foot. An investigation determined she had acted in self-defense, thus the DA’s office did not file charges against her.
