Last Friday, a Las Vegas woman shot her stalker in the chest after he forced his way into her home, local media reports.
The incident occurred around 1 a.m., when the suspect, 22-year-old Douglas Eugene Jackson, the woman’s ex-boyfriend, kicked down the door of her apartment.
Fearing for her life, the woman, who did not want to be identified, fired two shots at Jackson, hitting him once in the chest.
With the tables now turned, and perhaps fearing for his life, Jackson fled from the woman’s apartment.
When police arrived on the scene they found Jackson hiding behind some nearby bushes. He was sent to the hospital for treatment for his gunshot wound.
Once he is released he will face charges for aggravated stalking and home invasion.
