An elderly woman was shocked to find a man, whom she had given temporary shelter to in the past, in her bedroom one Saturday evening. The woman’s history with the man stemmed back to a period of time when she allowed him to stay with her as an opportunity to break a drug addiction. However, the woman kicked him out after he once again began abusing drugs. To make matters worse, the woman discovered he was hiding a knife that he had taken from her kitchen. Fearing for her life, she retrieved a firearm and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. The intruder attempted to evade responding officers by jumping over a backyard fence, but police apprehended him and booked him in jail. The homeowner was unharmed.

A woman’s ex-boyfriend, who was under a No Contact oder, broke into her home through the back door one morning. Fearing for her life, she was able to retrieve a firearm and fire at him before he could harm her. The ex-boyfriend succumbed to his wound in the home. The county prosecuting attorney’s office deemed the shooting justifiable, thus the woman was not charged. (KArk.com, Little Rock, Ark., 01/11/20)
