It's pretty strange she had time to get a shotgun out of her trunk, and also pretty strange he continued to harass her (obvious from the video) when she was armed; only a damn fool would have come towards her after that. And there's clearly a slashing motion on his part before she fires.
Good for her (except for the part about firing a weapon near gasoline). One less crazy person on the planet, has everyone gone insane? Who acts like this? What part of 'don't approach strangers in public without being VERY polite' don't people understand?

She could have easily gotten in to her car when she was finished pumping gas or gone back inside the store to call police. He was not restraining her in any way that I could see. When she took the time to open her trunk and grab her rifle rather than extricating herself from the situation is when lost "self defense" in my opinion.
Really? REALLY?!?! Friends and family of cretins say this all the time. Crap like "he'd never shoot you" and "the gun wasnt even loaded!" and "he was a good kid!" WTF family. I get you have to stand up for your relatives but jeez.
"My brother is harmless, he's harmless and he wouldn't have hurt her. He wouldn't have hurt nobody," a man identifying himself as Lewis' brother told KHOU.
