The Armed Citizen® April 2, 2018

Indianapolis prosecutors have determined that a woman, who was arrested in connection with a shooting death, won’t face murder charges because she was ruled to have acted in self-defense. Officials originally sought the armed citizen in connection with possible murder charges because she wasn’t at the scene when the police showed up. After she learned that she was a person of interest in a death investigation, the woman turned herself in. Witnesses, under later questioning, informed police that they had seen a fight that, at one point, resulted in the woman being pinned against a fence. Gunshots were heard after that point.

A woman was riding her motorcycle on a highway when another driver, apparently not liking the way she was driving, attempted to box her in with his vehicle and then “aggressively approached her on the shoulder of the interstate.” The man started a fight with the woman, slamming her head into a barrier. As she lay on the ground, the aggressor tried to climb on top of her. Luckily, the woman, who has a concealed-pistol license, drew her gun and shot her attacker. The assailant died at the scene. The woman was not charged as prosecutors said she acted in self-defense. (The News Tribune, Tacoma, WA, 3/19/18)
