NEWMAN LAKE, Wash. - A jealous ex-boyfriend broke into the Newman Lake home of his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend early Sunday morning and was shot and killed by the homeowner.He was armed with a shotgun and a pistol. Only hours before he had been served with a court order of "no contact." That wasn't worth the paper it was written on.
It was his intention to kill his ex and her new partner. Without legal self-defense at least two people would be dead. (Guys like that often - though no always - kill themselves. You think they would just do that first, before they leave home, things would be a little better.)
Since they have the guy on the 911 call threatening that "no one gets out alive," it is a pretty clear case of self-defense, and the sheriff's department is treating it as such.
