Las Vegas Woman Shoots Stalker, Posts Photo Of Aftermath Online

October 3, 2014 12:41 p.m.

After a stalker broke into her home, a Nevada woman shot him in the chest and then reportedly posted a photo of the scene online after her attacker fled.

Las Vegas TV station KVVU reported that the attacker, whom the woman briefly dated before he began stalking her, kicked her apartment door down at about 1 a.m. on Sept. 26. She shot at him twice, hitting him once, according to the TV station.

Police soon found the man hiding behind bushes, bloodied from a gunshot wound. The suspect was charged with home invasion and aggravated stalking.

The woman, who went unnamed in the KVVU report, told the station she had begun receiving death threats and obsessive text messages from the 22-year-old man.

KVVU reported the woman also posted a photo of her front door after the attack on the image-hosting site Imgur. The photo revealed bullet holes marking the the edge of the door.

“As of now I’m in a haze of guilt, surprise, relief and disbelief,” the woman wrote.

“I’ve never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that’s what helps the most,” she wrote.
