Concealed-carrying woman shoots gunman 5 times after cops say he shot male victim in face following argument

A woman with a concealed-carry permit shot a gunman five times last week in North Carolina after police say the gunman shot a male victim in the face following an argument.

What are the details?

Shelby Police Capt. Seth Treadway told the Shelby Star that 33-year-old Unterio M. Jolly made his way to the 500 block of Smith Street around 6 p.m. Nov. 6 where he got into an argument with another man.

“Then they kind of go their separate ways, and about a half an hour after [Jolly] shows up with a gun and shoots [the other male] in the face and the shoulder,” Treadway told the paper. “Right after he does that ... a concerned citizen shoots back trying to protect [the other male] and hits Jolly about five times. She shoots him five times.”

Treadway told the Star that Jolly was in critical but stable condition in Charlotte, and the male victim is expected to live.

Treadway added to the paper that Jolly was determined to be the aggressor and that warrants were obtained for charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury, firearm by a felon, and assault by pointing a gun.

“We will consult with the district attorney’s office later in the day to see if those charges need to stay the same,” Treadway noted to the Star. “I do not expect any charges on the person that returned fire.”

Treadway added to the paper that the woman has a legally issued concealed handgun permit.

How are folks reacting?

Several hundred commenters chimed in underneath Fox News' story on the incident published by Yahoo! News. They seemed rather pleased by the outcome:

  • "That's what I call gun control," one commenter wrote. "Great job, lady."
  • "Not a good guy with a gun but a good gal with a gun..." another commenter observed.
  • "An armed bystander to the rescue," another commenter said. "The victim could have been killed. Is this want the gun control crowd wants? Each month the NRA magazine has six or seven accounts of legal gun owners using weapons for their protection. Six or seven potential killings. Is this what the gun controllers want?"
  • "Another story about a legal gun owner who also happens to be a hero," another commenter noted. "Good job."
  • "See what happens when people exercise their 2A rights to keep and bear arms?" another commenter wondered. "It helps prevent violence and mass shootings. California, NY, and WA need to take note."
  • "And if the liberals had their way, no one would have a gun for protection — except the criminals, of course," another commenter concluded.
