Tennessee Woman Shoots Attacker, Saving Herself And Others

Dieshunn Lindsey picked the wrong woman to pick on. And Latesha Hinton gave him her best shot.

It happened early Sunday morning in a small Chattanooga, Tenn., neighborhood, when Lindsay approached the woman and began an argument—and she became terrified. It was then that Hinton pulled a gun she was carrying and fired at her attacker, leaving Lindsay with a non-serious wound. Chattanooga police investigating the scene reported that Hinton “reasonably feared for herself and others” when she shot, declaring it an act of self-defense.

Lindsey was treated for his injuries before being arrested for aggravated assault and five counts of reckless endangerment, as well as several other counts stemming from previous warrants.
