Texas Self-Defense: Police: Woman shot local man in the face as he choked her :: 09/12/2018

WACO, Texas (KWTX) Police are investigating after they say a woman shot a man in the face as he choked her during an argument at a Waco apartment complex.

Waco police confirmed Wednesday that officers were sent to the Arlington Farms apartments in the 1800 block of Primrose Drive just before midnight.

When officers arrived they found a man shot in the face.

Police later identified the man as Homer Hampton, 40.

During the investigation officers discovered Hampton and woman, who are in some sort of relationship or possibly related, were fighting when the man began to choke the woman, Waco police Sgt. Patrick Swanton said.

During the struggle, Hampton pulled out a gun, but the woman was able to point it toward him and shoot him, Swanton said.

He was taken to a local hospital.

Information about his condition wasn’t available.

Swanton said charges against Hampton were pending and that charges against the woman were not expected because she fired in self-defense.
