The woman said she decided to go out shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday for a snack. She was listening to the book “Creole Belle” and decided to stay in the SUV after parking. She noticed the smudge and moved to the back seat to clean the glass.
“I saw this young man crossing the street in front of my car,’’ she said.
When she stepped out of the SUV, the man shoved a gun in her face. “B—-, give me your car,” he yelled. “He was right there — he had a gun on me. Then he grabbed me and said he’s going to kill me.”
Then the woman did something she now regrets. She fought back.
“I told him no and then I started screaming. I was trying to stand my ground,” she said. “I don’t know what I was thinking. I told him go ahead and just shoot me, I’m not moving, and then I started to scream.”
She cried as she talked about the confrontation. “I don’t know what I was thinking. It was so stupid.
