The woman was walking home from work when the alleged attempted robbery occurred. Police say they were searching for another potential suspect that fled the scene.
The woman who fired has not been charged.
Late night and early morning hours can be particularly dangerous, especially if you’re walking alone. Being prepared is essential, as this woman seems to have been quite prepared to defend herself.
