“Just before 9 a.m., police received a 911 call from a woman who said her friend had called her and told her that her ex-boyfriend, against whom she had a restraining order, showed up at her home,” azstarnet.com reports. “Officers arrived at the home in the 6800 block of South Kolb Road nine minutes later and found signs of forced entry . . . They found the woman inside the home dead from a gunshot wound and a man with a life-threatening gunshot wound that appeared to be self-inflicted.” We’re not sure why the victim called her friend rather than dialing 911. In any case, the fact remains that to protect herself, a gun on her hip would have been infinitely better than a phone at her ear.
