According to Elko County, Nevada, Sheriff Neil Harris, a man
who had befriended and later stalked Tracy Templeton deliberately
waited until Templeton's husband was away one morning before
entering the couple's house. The man beat Templeton in the face with
the heel of his hand in an attempt to deliver a tactical blow
designed to kill. But Templeton's 15-year-old son, who was in the
house along with her 3-year-old son, came to his mother's rescue.
He first attempted to pull the man away, then ran into a bedroom,
where he grabbed a semi-automatic .22-cal. handgun. When he
returned, he fired three shots, killing the attacker. Templeton
suffered a deep cut over her right eye, a broken cheek bone, a
broken nose, and bruises. The assailant had been released from jail
the previous night after serving time for the stalking.
