INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA — “Honestly, I mostly carry it because my dad wanted me to. Now I’m glad I listened.” Those are the words spoken by a daughter who is happy she listened to her father’s advice.
The daughter, named Crystal, was coming home from work late Friday night when she was approached by three men who tried to rob her. At least one of the men was armed. “I just heard them saying ‘Shut up, be quiet, don’t say anything’ and the one here had a weapon,” she said.
When one of the men went to grab at her, she turned around and started shooting, hitting one of the three men. The trio took off and were soon located by police. The two uninjured men got away, and the third was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.
Crystal has some advice regarding women and their safety: “Learn how to protect yourself if you don’t know how. Be more aware. I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings at all.”
