Mich woman who shot at alleged Home Depot shoplifter “was not being threatened” when she fired gun


By now you've probably heard about the Michigan woman who pulled out a gun in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Auburn Hills and fired shots at someone running from the store with a security guard chasing them (details HERE.) The store is part of a retail district with hundreds of stores in the area.

Here's an overhead shot from Google maps showing the Home Depot where it all went down:


Well, it turns out (not surprisingly) that she was not being personally threatened when she fired at the alleged shoplifter:

Police confirmed on Wednesday that a concealed pistol license (CPL) holder was not being threatened by a fleeing shoplifter when she decided to fire multiple shots at him in a Home Depot parking lot.

And experts interviewed Wednesday doubted the shooting could have been justified.

And that, my friends, might just put her in jail.
