A Richland County, South Carolina woman was startled from sleep sometime after 2a.m. Saturday to the sounds of an argument. The woman grabbed her gun to see what was going on.
As she came downstairs she found her brother, 42-year-old Joe Bales, fighting with his girlfriend. While trying to break up the fight between the two, her brother turned the attack on her and tried to take the gun from her.
She fired. He was wounded. Fight over. Calm-ish restored.
