After his son alerted him to a gunfight in progress near
their home, Michael McIntee of Towner, North Dakota, grabbed a
.22-250 rifle and went to investigate. He found a county sheriff
wounded and a man threatening to kill a woman and two children.
Believing the sheriff dead, McIntee fired once, hitting the man.
The woman began to flee, and the man shot at her. McIntee fired
once more, stopping the attack. The man, who turned out to be the
woman's ex-husband, then turned his own gun on himself. He had a
history of spousal abuse and violence. McIntee said, "My goal was
to prevent him from killing her and the kids."
