A legally armed woman shot and killed a stranger who was threatening her co-worker. The deceased man had been observed yelling at the co-worker and hitting the side window of her car with his fist after she had left the business through an electric gate. The co-worker had been able to close the gate behind her, but the man got into his vehicle and drove through the gate, hitting several parked vehicles. Police said it was then that the armed woman became involved, as she was inside the gated area when she witnessed the unfolding scenario. In fear for her and her co-worker’s safety, she confronted the man, who then attacked here. The two struggled until the woman fired twice at the attacker. He was taken to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries. The armed woman was uninjured. (, Pasadena, Texas, 9/1/22)
