Gun Owner Shoots Woman in Self-Defense Inside Grocery Store: Reports

A woman who was being assaulted inside an Iowa grocery store shot her attacker with a legally owned gun in what police called an act of self-defense, according to reports.

The woman says she fired one round Sunday morning because she was “blindsided, beat up and put in a headlock” inside the Hy-Vee food store in Des Moines, KCCI 8 reported, citing Des Moines police.

The alleged attacker, identified by police as Kapri Francis, 30, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg after she launched a “totally unprovoked attack” at the legally armed woman, police said, according to KCCI 8.

A male customer was also injured after the bullet ricocheted and hit him in the foot, the report said.

Police said the two women involved know each other, according to KCCI 8. (Read more from “Gun Owner Shoots Woman in Self-Defense Inside Grocery Store: Reports” HERE)
