Rifle-toting woman shoots, kills man outside gas station in southeast Houston
KHOU TV ^ | 22 July 2013 | staff report

Posted on 07/22/2013 12:13:56 PM PDT by smokingfrog

Surveillance cameras caught a deadly confrontation outside a gas station in southeast Houston Sunday evening when a 23-year-old woman shot and killed a man with a rifle.

It happened at the Gulf station in the 6800 block of Cullen Boulevard shortly before 7 p.m., according to Houston police.

Video shows a woman, who was dressed in camouflage shorts and a white t-shirt, arguing with a man near the gas pumps. At some point, she pulled out a rifle from the trunk of her vehicle and pointed it at the man.

That is when the man took a swing at her, knocking her backward. The woman then aimed her rifle directly at him and fired off several rounds.

To witnesses’ surprise, she then pulled out her cell phone and recorded the body lying on the ground.

The victim, identified by family members as 58-year-old Lewis Daniel, died at the scene. A knife was also found on the ground near him, police said.

Interesting. Video seems to show a man committing harassment and assault against a woman, then continuing to commit those crimes after she retrieved a rifle from the trunk of her car. Based on the video evidence presented in the press, I would characterize the woman as the victim of assault, and the man as the perpetrator thereof. The video appears to depict justified self-defense.

**a 23-year-old woman shot and killed a man with a rifle.**

Who had the rifle? The man?

Can’t see the video behind the corporate firewall. What were the races of those involved? If she was white and he was hispanic/black, we might have another Zimmerman trial on our hands.

Then again, this IS Texas. Likely cooler heads will prevail.

The “reporter” got it wrong - the guy didn’t swing an umbrella at the woman. He held the umbrella in his right hand and swung with his left. It looked like a clumsy or drunk knife attack to me.

The dead man pulled a knife on the shooter, but according to his brother, “he didn’t want to hurt nobody”. She may have pushed her luck in terms of the law by firing multiple shots once he was down, but I hope the police give her a break. She may not have known whether he was still a threat and about to get back up, and she’s not a white Hispanic so there is no reason to prosecute her.

From reading the story it appears this guy liked to screw with people at the gas station. He would attack them with the umbrella and in this case approached her with the knife in his hand. That was after repeatedly making sexual requests from her.

Clumsy or drunk doesn't matter. Attack me with a knife, get shot. Simple. Don't wanna get shot? Don't attack me.

BTW, the woman appeared to me to be projecting a major "Don't Fsck With Me" attitude even before the apparent perpetrator started perpetrating.

If she got a rifle from the trunk of her car she could have gotten in the car and fled.

If she’s White and the dead man non-White, there will be a trial and she’ll have to explain the above.

I watched the video. Regardless of the words said it was a clear case of self defense. The man moved towards her in an aggressive manner. After the took her rifle out of the trunk he struck her in the face with a closed fist. She then shot him.

““He was already messing with people, you know what I’m saying,” one witness said. “Like trying to attack people with the umbrella. Like he was just angry, like expressing he was mad at the world.”
The young woman fled the scene after the shooting, but a witness recorded her license plate number and handed it over to police. Police tracked her down and took her in for questioning, then got her version of events.
Police said the woman was pumping gas when Daniel approached and began making sexual advances toward her. She repeatedly told the suspect to go away, but he continued to harass her. The man then advanced toward her with a knife, which is when she armed herself.”

This woman was serving justice to a probable sexual predator. The courts would only slap his wrists and send him back to do more ... well, we can saying anything we want now, since the regime has made up all sorts of crap about George Zimmerman and spewed it into the nation's psyche via the cadres of sycophantic liars known as the mainstream media.

But ya know what, I'll bet that is not far from what really happened here. And the guy had a knife he was about to try and cut her with don'tchaknow.

“If she got a rifle from the trunk of her car she could have gotten in the car and fled.”

That is what stand your ground is for. Under that law you do not have a duty to retreat. The guy was certainly close enough to hurt her with the knife.

Don’t screw with an armed angry black woman.

Way at the bottom of the article is this....

______________________________________________

“Police said the woman was pumping gas when Daniel approached and began making sexual advances toward her. She repeatedly told the suspect to go away, but he continued to harass her. The man then advanced toward her with a knife, which is when she armed herself.

The case is being referred to the grand jury. No charges have been filed at this time.”
___________________________

So IF the man was using a knife would this be considered self defense?

I LOVE how the media play up the story, a lot of people would have only read the first couple of sentences.

If cooler heads had prevailed he wouldn't have swung on her and she wouldn't have had to shoot him.

Decent folk don't express their anger and discontent by violently lashing out at strangers.

The young woman fled the scene after the shooting, but a witness recorded her license plate number and handed it over to police. Police tracked her down and took her in for questioning, then got her version of events.

Not entirely wise on her part. Fleeing might not be too bad, but she should have called 911 on her own. IMO. It suggests innocence. IMO.

At about 1:05 in the video, the reporter says that police were “wondering why Daniel was murdered”. Murder is a criminal act — the reporter should have said something less judgmental, like “killed”.

Oh, the reporter also says the man swung an umbrella at the woman. If you look at 00:44, you can clearly see that he does not swing the umbrella — he swings his other arm, which appears to hold a knife.

No argument here - I was just mentioning the usual lackluster media performance. From what I saw in the video, the guy had ample warning to stop - but didn't. He did the opposite - he pressed a knife attack against a person with a drawn gun.

It’s weird how she walked right up to him after getting the rifle out of the car. If she were afraid of him you would think she would keep some distance. In the first part of the video they are talking but nothing unusual seems to be going on.

That’s called ‘signifyin’, she brought the rifle out (looks like a Ruger 1022 to me) and signified she would cap one off in him if he didn’t go away. He didn’t respect her signifyin and he got shot for it.
