A 34-year-old man tried to make good on threats he had made to his
ex-wife. Despite a court order demanding he stay away from his ex
and her home, the man broke into her house. The woman was fearful,
as her ex-husband had previously called her several times
threatening to kill her. She immediately picked up the phone and
began to dial 9-1-1. The intruder hit her in the face and knocked
the phone out of her hand. Another man, who lives in the home,
picked up a .30-30 Win. rifle and shot the woman's attacker in the
leg. The wounded man was airlifted to a local hospital. Sheriff's
deputies say they had responded to the same house numerous times
prior to the shooting.
