A 34-year-old pregnant woman and a 33-year-old man were engaged in an argument one morning when the man started to choke her. In fear for her and her unborn child’s life, the woman was able to reach a nearby gun and fire once at the man. The bullet went through both arms. Both were taken to hospitals for treatment. The man, who already violated an order to cease all communication with the woman a month prior, was slated to be arrested upon his release from the hospital. The man had previously plead guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct, a fourth-degree misdemeanor, and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with all but one day suspended. (, Uniontown, Ohio., 7/29/22)

Sheriff’s office investigators have ruled that a shooting that led to the death of an apartment resident at about 6 p.m. one evening was self-defense, and no arrests will be made. There had reportedly been an altercation that lead to gunfire. No further details on the circumstances of the shooting were available. (, Pensacola, Fla., 8/12/22)
