When Michelle Sheppard emerged from an office building after
conducting business one afternoon, she was confronted by her
estranged husband who was angry and armed with both a knife and a
gun, according to sheriff's office spokesman Col. Bob Garner. The
knife attack that ensued left the New Orleans woman with stab wounds
to the forehead, back, neck and side. As she attempted to escape,
Sheppard ran into the parking lot of a nearby business where she
attracted the attention of a patron who witnessed her plight and
decided to help. The Good Samaritan used a gun he was licensed to
carry to hold Sheppard's attacker until police deputies arrived.
