A 23-year-old Houston woman defended herself with deadly force Sunday night after a man assaulted her and threatened her with a knife in a gas station parking lot.
Surveillance footage shows the shooter retrieving a rifle from the trunk of her car and pointing it toward the feet of a man making wild arm gestures and wielding an umbrella and a knife.
Then it shows the man hitting the woman as she steps back and fires. Louis Daniel, 58, was pronounced dead at the scene, KHOU 11 News reported.
Police said the woman claimed the man had made unwanted sexual advances and refused to leave her alone. She also told police she feared for her life, the station reported.
Women need to be ready to defend themselves against armed aggression; having a gun makes that a hell of a lot easier. She should start carrying a pistol instead of having to retrieve a rifle from the trunk. Via Houston woman stands her ground, fatally shoots man wielding knife - Washington Times.
