A woman was in the process of bathing her child around 9:30 p.m. when she heard a noise at her door. When she investigated, the noise turned out to be a man with whom she had a previous relationship, and for whom she had taken out a temporary restraining order earlier that day. The woman told police the man entered her domicile and attacked her, causing her to fear for her life and the safety of her child. Fortunately, she was a gun owner and was able to retrieve her gun and fire off one round in her attacker's direction.

The woman told police she didn’t think the discharged round had hit the man, but they discovered him deceased about 100 to 150 yards from her apartment complex. The domestic incident allegedly began the day prior, when the man had taken the woman’s phone from her. She was able to locate the phone by using its tracking feature, and notified authorities. When police visited the address where the phone pinged, the man would not come to the door, so they advised the woman to take out the restraining order. The woman was not charged.
