Like there was any doubt that it was self defense. I'd almost be money that the 11 O Clock news will have someone saying she should be charged.

Wayne County prosecutors announced Thursday that Detroiter Barbara Holland will not face criminal charges in connection with the shooting death of a man during a robbery attempt in the city last month.


Holland, 38, a business owner, shot and killed Clabe Hunt, 42, on April 13 as Hunt shoved his way into her home on Troester near Hayes with a gun, police said.


Holland, who had just left work, had a 9 mm gun in a holster. She drew the weapon after stumbling backwards when Hunt pushed open her side door and shot him, police said.


Hunt was an ex-con carrying a loaded, semiautomatic handgun, which was not registered to him. Holland's gun was licensed.


Prosecutors determined the shooting be self-defense.

This was nice, it was on the local news pretty close to the start of the show. My wife and I high-fived when we heard it. I'm very sorry it happened to her, but glad she was able to defend herself.
