Woman Shoots Husband In Self-Defense, Is Shot By Officers
When a man with a history of domestic violence showed up at his estranged wife’s home in Huntsville, Alabama, Sunday evening armed with a gun, she grabbed her own firearm to protect herself, but was subsequently shot by responding officers who arrived at the home to find her holding the weapon.
Lisa Skinner, 52, had been staying at her mother’s home and had an active order of protection against Bradley Skinner, 59, which she said filed because she feared she would become the victim of a murder/suicide. But the protective order did not keep her estranged husband away, who was armed with a pistol and a large knife when he broke out the glass to the back door to gain entry into the home around 6 p.m., AL.com reported.
