Woman Shoots, Kills Masked Man Outside Her Front Door


The Associated Press reports the woman was leaving her home when she noticed the masked man approaching. The woman had a gun and shot the man, fatally wounding him.

Officers responded to the scene and reportedly found the man lying with a handgun nearby.

WTOP notes that officers performed CPR on the man, who was then transported to a hospital where he died.

The deceased man was identified as “20-year-old Azhar Laurent Smart.”


The Prince William Police Department said the incident does not appear to be random. They subsequently ruled “the shooting … to be justified based on self-defense.”
