Nevada Self-Defense: Woman claims self-defense after shooting boyfriend to death :: 03/29/2019

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A woman shot her boyfriend and then told police it was self-defense.

The shooting sparked a four hour SWAT standoff at an east valley apartment complex.

SWAT officers surrounded the Desert Ridge apartments at East Lake Mead and Hollywood Wednesday night after getting calls about an armed man hunkered down in a car in the parking lot.

When cops arrived they found a woman screaming for help.

Mary Burgess lives at the apartments. "They were in a car and they were having an argument, and there were two gunshots."

She witnessed the chaos.

Burgess and other neighbors say the woman went door to door begging for help.

"She got out of the car. A neighbor came out when he heard gunshots and he grabbed her and took her to security where security secured her", says Burgess.

Police say the woman told them she shot her boyfriend because he threatened to kill her.

The confrontation between the man and woman sparked a four-hour police standoff. Police say when they arrived they were told the man had a gun, but they did not know right away that he was dead.

World War II veteran Charles Watkins could not believe the tension around his apartment building. Watkins says the whole night he stayed locked in his home.

Watkins said, "I wondered if something was going to happen."

Burgess says the couple had children. She feels for the family.

"I think it's really sad. People that supposedly love each other get so out of hand that somebody ends up losing their life", says Burgess.
