A man in Hartford, Alabama, was walking home with his wife on Friday night when a group of armed men reportedly approached the couple.
Though details are still sketchy, the man’s instinct to protect his wife quickly kicked in and he pulled his own firearm.
Police confirmed the man shot one of the suspects in the nose. He reportedly fired just the one shot and the group dispersed.
The one injured suspect is very lucky as his injuries are not life threatening, WTVY-TV reports.
Hartford Police Chief Anne Ward said officials have determined that the shooting was justified and the man acted in self-defense. She also said it’s unlikely any charges will be filed in the shooting incident.
But the report is still lacking key details, including the motive of the group of armed men or whether police are working to identify the remaining suspects.
