Raleigh, NC – A woman is not facing any charged after shooting a man during a road rage incident that took place on Aug. 1.
Details are scarce but according to Raleigh Police, a man became aggressive toward a woman driver which started the road rage incident. He followed her into the parking lot of a Food Lion grocery store.
He then walked up to her car and attempted to open the door. That’s when the woman fired at the man in self-defense. He was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries.
The police do not plan on filing any charges at this time. A defense attorney told local media that she had the right to defend herself under North Carolina’s castle doctrine.
“Basically saying your home, your automobile, your workplace are considered to be an individual’s castle and you have a right to defend yourself inside those locations,” Turner said.
