A 19-year-old woman went to meet up with her 32-year-old ex boyfriend to return a gun of his that was still in her possession.
It should have been a simple hand over, but he wasn’t allowing that.
Once she met him on the street, he began to charge at her, with ANOTHER gun that he brought with him.
The incident unfolded along Melrose Avenue around 11 a.m. Monday. The woman went to meet he ex to return his gun, police said. But, when she saw him on the street, he charged at her holding his own gun. She opened fire to stop the attack.
Let’s take a moment to understand what really happened here.
The woman had a gun that belonged to her ex, and was returning it to him
The ex, for whatever reason, brings another gun to the meeting
The ex then starts to charge towards her with the gun
The woman shoots, striking the ex in the leg
You have to be a special kind of stupid to charge towards someone you KNOW is carrying a loaded firearm?
After the incident, the street was shut down by police for a few hours while they sorted things out. The woman spoke with police, and she was the one who called 911 directly after the incident.
He is expected to face felony harassment charges once he has recovered and released from the hospital.
