Armed Church Member Saves Woman In Parking Lot

A church employee with a Right-to-Carry permit used his gun to scare off an attacker near the Sacred Heart of Jesus church in Boulder, Colo. A female parishioner was in the parking lot when her estranged husband confronted her with a knife and threatened to slit her throat. A church employee, who was walking to his car at the time, witnessed the assault. He pulled out his handgun and told the man to leave the woman alone. The estranged husband fled, but was later captured by police and faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and felony menacing. The woman was taken to a hospital and treated for an abdominal stab wound. No charges will be brought against the armed citizen. (The Denver Post, Denver, Colo., 8/2/15)
