A wife took action to save her husband’s life when she opened fire on a 45-year-old man who held a gun to her husband’s head.

At 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 7, 2023, the 45-year-old suspect drove into the front yard of the house owned by the man and woman, exited the vehicle, grabbed the husband, forced him to the ground and pointed a gun to his head. The man’s wife, who watched the situation unfold, used her handgun to fire at the suspect.

When officers arrived on the scene later, they found the 45-year-old suspect with a single gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Indiana State Police investigators told WDRB News that the deceased assailant was “well-known in the area” and had a criminal background. (WDRB News; Salem, Ind.; 8/7/23)
