A Florida woman and her boyfriend double-dated with another couple, all returning to the woman’s home at around 4 a.m. At some point, the homeowner and her boyfriend got into a heated argument, and the other man forced the boyfriend to leave. However, the boyfriend returned to his girlfriend’s house at 6:40 a.m. and began beating on the front door, demanding that she open the door. When nobody answered, he retrieved a tire iron and threatened to break the window. The frightened woman armed herself and remained silent until he began smashing the window, at which point she fired at him, fatally wounding him. The man died at the scene. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told reporters that the homeowner will not be charged. “You have a right to protect yourself in your home and be free from home invaders, armed burglars and certainly he was armed with a tire iron making an attempt to come in through the window,” he told local press. “She stopped him. She stopped him permanently.” (ActionNewsJAX.com, Jacksonville, Fla., 08/23/20)
