NM - An Albuquerque woman whose ex-husband was stabbing her when he was shot and killed by a stranger says that she would like to meet the man who she feels saved her life. "I just gotta give thanks that I'm alive and I would like to met Mr. Moore very soon because he is my angel and he did the right thing to save my life," said Joyce Cordova.
Cordova was working in the deli at an Albuquerque Wal-Mart in August of 2005 when she was confronted by her ex-husband, 54-year-old Felix Vigil. Vigil was armed with a knife, went behind the counter and began stabbing her.
Due Moore, 72, who didn't know either people, happened to be shopping in the store at the time when he came across the attack.
Moore, who was among the first people in the state to receive a license to carry a concealed weapon, produced a nine-millimeter handgun and shot Vigil three times, killing him.
Moore, who didn't want to be interviewed on camera, declined to meet with the woman who credits him with saving her life until any legal issues surrounding the incident are resolved.
Eyewitness News 4 spoke with the district attorney's office on Wednesday and learned that the incident has just recently been ruled a justifiable shooting.
