FL:Woman with .45 Shoots Man Beating Girlfriend

These domestic situations are often hard to decipher.  This one seems pretty clear.   It looks justified from the information given.

Officials say their preliminary information indicates that the man who was shot, showed up at his girlfriends apartment, forced his way in to her home and started a violent fight with her.  During the fight, a second woman, visiting her boyfriend next door, heard the door and windows breaking as well as screaming coming from the apartment.

That second woman armed herself with a 45 caliber handgun and saw the man beating his ex girlfriend with a metal object outside on the sidewalk. When she tried to intervene, the man attacked her, striking her in the face and she shot him.  Deputies later found him dead in the parking lot.

Sounds good to me.
I hope she had all the proper paperwork.
