Good - Armed Samaritan Helps Woman - Shreveport, LA
UPDATED: Homeowner shoots man who tries to break into his house | ShreveportTimes | The Times
Clearly Mr. Stanley was the agressor in this incident, and hopefully the samaritan will not face any charges.
A Shreveport man is recovering from a gunshot wound after he was injured following a domestic disturbance with his wife.
James Stanley was shot in the abdomen by a homeowner in the 4400 block of Kent Road where Stanley's wife had gone to seek refuge after a domestic argument, according to Caddo deputies
Stanley and his wife got into an argument at a local business just after midnight. The woman left in Stanley's truck, and he followed her in another vehicle.
Before arriving at their house, Stanley began ramming the truck from behind several times. His wife stopped a few blocks from home, and ran to the residence of friends for help, deputies said.
Stanley began banging on the door and was told to leave, which he did, but he soon returned. The homeowner warned Stanley he had a gun and ordered him to leave. Stanley continued to bang on the door and broke a window.
The homeowner then fired a shot through the door with a 12-gauge shotgun, striking Stanley in the stomach. He was taken to LSU Hospital in Shreveport where he underwent surgery.
Deputies say Stanley was the aggressor in the incident, and he has been charged with aggravated assault, disturbing the peace, and simple property damage. The homeowner has not been charged, but the case is still under investigation and will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office for review.
