She did what she had to do to protect herself, good for her!
Exactly why I thought the guy's gun might be fake...I mean, he has his gun to her neck and she does all that (draws it, racks the slide and shoots him) with him doing nothing? Well, I wasn't there but it just sounds strange.The video shows a Glock in her hand. She "cocked" it?? Does that mean she racked the slide? She really is lucky that she had both hands free and was able to rack and shoot the scumbag before he realized what she was doing.
It really doesn't matter if the gun was real or fake. Toy guns used in a robbery carries the same penalties as a real one in a court of law.I really wonder if the guy's gun was fake or a toy.
See what you think, link below:
Woman shoots, kills would-be armed robber after he allegedly put gun to her neck | KFOR.com
Or maybe he was so surprised that she HAD one, he froze!
Anyway, good shooting and good riddance!
(Wow, and her name is 'Miracle')
Wasn't the Point. See above on her reaction time.It really doesn't matter if the gun was real or fake. Toy guns used in a robbery carries the same penalties as a real one in a court of law.
Then again, it may help her NOT appear as someone who's goal is to kill a BG versus just trying to stop the threat.From the article,
"I feel bad, I didn’t mean to kill him......."
That could come back to bite her in court.
She appeared to be open carrying. So much for the "OC deters would be thieves and makes them seek softer targets".

Yes, the comments on the news site are odd, one woman saying this person was a convicted felon.This story was actually posted a few days ago. An awful lot of folks from this form condemned this woman said she look like a drug dealer couldn't understand why she went home to call 911 I sure am glad to see the response that it's getting now and I'm disgusted with the comments when this story was posted earlier if I knew how I link the two of them...
The weapon she used was involved in a fatal shooting; I highly doubt she still has it in possession or will be seeing it for another month or so. Maybe the one in the news shot was another they wanted to show for effect.The video shows a Glock in her hand. She "cocked" it?? Does that mean she racked the slide? She really is lucky that she had both hands free and was able to rack and shoot the scumbag before he realized what she was doing.
'Like their animal cousins, human predators tend to pick on weaker prey. Perhaps the perp didn’t see the GLOCK on Ms. Miracle’s hip. It was dark. She was holding a drink from the gas station, possibly in her right hand. If she was wearing a dark top, as she was in the video, the GLOCK wouldn’t have presented much contrast. While open carriers tend to be more aware of their defensive firearm, many people never notice it.
Yeah ... She was fortunate to have been carrying a real gun. Had she been carrying a S&W, Springfield or Ruger the outcome may have been significantly different'
Yeash how many times do they have to refer to a Glock View attachment 150649 View attachment 150649 View attachment 150649 , she was armed and had the means to defend herself???
