Just another example of people with a gun, pretending that they are "defending" themselves, ending up dead.

Once you pull out that gun, your odds of dying escalate dramatically.

What difference would drugs make? Nothing excuses what this man did to her regardless of what she did.

Kind of changes the whole picture of what the "Headlines" first led everyone to believe. Kind of brings back the memory of an old saying I heard. "Seek, and thou shalt find." If the investigation is accurate, no sympathy here.
If I was a betting man, I'd put money on this being a lot more than just a simple altercation. How did they go out and find this other car? Something doesn't smell right here. But we'll probably never know.

You're right. I wouldn't be surprised if they knew each other.

This was a definite tragic event, however a very preventable incident. The LVMPD is pretty decent at finding the bottom line...I'm rather confident that given time, they will find the suspect and/or suspects...and those facts yet to be disclosed.

One concern I have is that the victims son has admitted firing a 9mm on a fleeing vehicle...in a cul de sac....at a time of day when visibility is not optimal. Anyone familiar with the design of a cul de sac knows that houses are basically facing each other, in extremely close proximity. Firing a weapon of that caliber...or any caliber for that matter, in an area as described,could have very easily killed or seriously injured an innocent neighbor ...My point being, it could have been much worse !

Regardless...there were not one but several very poor decisions that lead to this tragic event...I will have to reserve judgement until we know "the rest of the story".

It's going to be some interesting " rest of the story."

Mom is out at 11:30 at night, on a school night , teaching her daughter, who does not have a learner's permit, how to drive. Then supposedly they got side swiped by another car- turns out that wasn't true.

Then mom goes home, gets son with gun to go look for other car. Finds him - evidently they all live very near each other. She leaves, other car follows her home and she gets shot at home. But it turns out she is standing behind her son when she is shot. What in the world?

And how do you know the perp has blue eyes at 11:30 at night when you're in a car or out on the road?

I still get the sneaking suspicion that these people all knew each other & mom knew where to find the shooter. Why was she looking for him- there was no physical accident, why bring your son along with a gun ?

What a tangled web of lies as the saying goes.

I am a little familiar with that specific area and based on time of day, and day of week...had the victim, if truly feeling threatened, simply dialed 911...Metro would have had units all over that area in a matter of minutes...there was absolutely no justification in my mind, what so ever, for the very poor decisions as reportedly exhibited by the victim.

Who in there right mind, already knowing the potential for a volatile situation, would return home, arm themselves, and go looking for another encounter....seriously....

I am not attacking the victim, or her family...and can see how my words might be considered as such...not the case....however this story is full of unanswered questions and exhibits borderline insanity !

There's more to the story than what has been reported. It will all come out in time. And I believe they have taken her off life support and I believe she did die.
