The Armed Citizen® November 26, 2018

Mothers usually protect their children, but the tables were turned in Idaho when an adult daughter saved her mother from an assailant. Law enforcement officers were dispatched after a call came in about a disturbance in the neighborhood. As the police were responding, they were advised there had been a shooting at the house in question. They arrived to find civilians administering first aid to a 39-year-old man, who was shot by a 41-year-old woman. Emergency medical services personnel continued treatment, but to no avail. The armed citizen told officers that she fired because the man was attacking her 70-year-old mother. Witnesses and evidence supported the claim.
