"Witnesses at the scene say there was a physical altercation involving a man beating a woman. A Good Samaritan intervened to stop the assault on the woman and the man turned on him. The Good Samaritan pulled out a weapon and reportedly shot him." http://www.kxly.com/news/spokane-news/one-man-shot-another-jailed-in-east-spokane-shooting/34277514 I gotta say, legally this guy will be cleared as its obvious he was acting to prevent imminent bodily harm to him or someone else, so I really cant see the prosecutor hassling him but as someone who almost always carries, it would have to be pretty bad for me to intervene more than calling 911. The risks are too great for something bad to happen.
