Entitled to violence


Police in Des Moines, Iowa, said a woman violently assaulted another woman in a Hy-Vee grocery store Sunday morning — but the victim was armed and shot her attacker in the leg in self-defense, KCCI-TV reported.

What are the details?

Kapri Lashawn Francis, 30, of Des Moines, violently assaulted another woman without provocation, police told the station, adding that the victim — who lawfully possessed a handgun — fired once in self-defense and hit Francis in the leg.

A male customer was shot in the foot when the bullet ricocheted, KCCI added.

Police said after interviewing witnesses and examining evidence — including in-store surveillance footage — they learned the shooter acted in self-defense after being violently assaulted, the station said.

Francis was arrested and charged with assault causing injury after her release from a hospital, KCCI reported, adding that she will be booked into the Polk County Jail.
