Iowa Self-Defense: Woman tells police she shot ex-boyfriend, authorities say :: 05/14/2019

DES MOINES, Iowa - Emergency crews were called to a report of a man shot in Des Moines Monday afternoon.

It happened around 12:20 p.m. in the 1400 block of Dean Avenue.

According to police, the victim is an ex-boyfriend who was in the home.

A woman there shot him in the chest. She then called 911.

Police have been called to the house 11 times in the last six months.
