A mother was getting her three children aged 8, 12 and 16 ready for school when her abusive husband showed up at the house unexpectedly. The man began physically attacking the mother, causing her to fear for her and her children's lives, forcing her to draw her handgun and shoot him multiple times, fatally wounding him. The aggressive husband had been out on bond for a previous attack on his wife. “We don't know what his intention was," Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. "It quickly escalated." The case was referred to a grand jury to see if charges will be filed. However, the woman and children are safe thanks to her brave actions. (khou.com, Harris County, Texas, 08/16/21)
