Wisconsin Self Defense: Prosecutors: Green Bay gas station shooting was self-defense :: 01/16/2022

GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A fatal shooting at a Green Bay gas station was self-defense, prosecutors have ruled.

Dominique Marie Wilson, 34, was killed in the Nov. 14 shooting at the Marathon gas station on E. Walnut Street and S. Monroe Avenue.

In a news release Friday, the Brown County district attorney's office said the incident stemmed from an ongoing dispute between two groups of people. At the gas station in the early morning hours, the two groups confronted each other. Surveillance showed mostly females involved, with some carrying weapons such as baseball bats, brass knuckles and pepper spray.

Prosecutors say at one point Wilson went to her vehicle and got a loaded handgun. Surveillance video showed her pointing the gun at others nearby and trying to fire it at people who were fighting. While this was going on, a person who was there with friends and family members shot and killed Wilson.

Two days later, the shooter turned himself in to Green Bay police. He said he shot Wilson out of fear she would start shooting everyone else.

Prosecutors say no one will be charged in the case. FOX 11 is not naming the shooter because he is not being charged.
