Turtle Creek, PA — Police say that a 28-year-old woman shot and killed her 24-year-old boyfriend in Turtle Creek early on Saturday morning. According to the Allegheny County police, the unidentified woman was ‘repeatedly assaulted’ in the hours preceding the assault.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Nigel Broadus. Local media reports:
Police said the abuse started around 2 a.m. Saturday, when the 28-year-old woman was repeatedly assaulted and held against her will for about three hours. During the assault, police said, Mr. Broadus threatened to kill her and began looking for her legally purchased firearm that she kept in the house.
The woman was able to find the firearm first and shot Mr. Broadus as he came toward her, said police. She then left the house on the 300 block of Mortimer Avenue and called 911 at 5:14 a.m.
First responders found Mr. Broadus with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Her Gun Saved Her Life
While the left screeches about women’s rights and rape culture, they often want to deny women the basic human right to self-defense.
This woman was well on her way to being beaten to death. If she hadn’t owned a gun — and known when to use it — the police could have been taking HER to the morgue. No doubt her family and friends are happy to spend many more years with her. And her violent, abusive boyfriend can’t hurt her — or any other innocent victims — ever again.
