Armed Georgia Woman Stops Ongoing Threat

An Atlanta woman, weary of harassment by a male acquaintance and fearing for her safety, finally resorted to shooting the man Saturday afternoon.

According to Atlanta police, the man had harassed the woman by forcing his presence on her, striking her, damaging property of her friends, and repeatedly knocking on her doors and windows in the middle of the night. Two separate police reports were made over the past two days before the shooting. 

But on Saturday afternoon, police say the man “approached [her] in a manner that reportedly caused [her] to fear for her safety.” She then pulled her handgun and shot the assailant once in the chest, killing him and ending the ongoing threat.
