A Concealed Carry Permit Holder fatally shot a woman who opened fire at customers outside a shopping center in Tulsa. The event took place at around 6:30 pm on 5300 block of North Peoria Avenue on Friday. The police arrived at the scene and found the woman dead.
The woman, Ashley Porter, was involved in a physical altercation at the parking lot, according to video surveillance footage. According to the police report, the woman returned minutes later and opened fire at the people standing outside the business. The armed citizen returned fire killing her on the spot. The man was released after questioning by the police.
"I don't know that there is going to be an arrest made in this particular case at this point. We are still going to go down and we are going to talk to him and figure out what his version is. Once we get the video and we are able to look at that video, I think it's going to give us a really good idea of what happened here," Tulsa Police Department Detective Jason White said.
Reports say that the 34-year old got into an argument with another person over a parking spot. Porter was enraged when a man in a truck was blocking her access to a parking stop. During the time of the shooting, the owner of the store was talking to the man. The truck was parked behind the owner's vehicle and blocking vehicles from accessing the parking lot.
"It made her angry that the pickup truck was blocking her access," Tulsa police Lt. Brandon Watkins said.
Her family described her as an "always caring, always loving, always giving, and she was just an amazing person."
Despite the situation, Porter did not have the right to shoot at innocent bystanders, including the owner, who was negotiating the situation. The media houses also ignored the case because it did not fit the gun control agenda.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
