Shoe called 911 when Tatem left the business and told the operator that he only left when she pulled out a gun.
During the 911 call, Shoe told the dispatcher that Tatem returned to the store with several other people and started yelling expletives at her and Gray.
The district attorney’s report said that while Shoe was on the phone with 911, a physical fight broke out between Tatem and Gray and that’s when she went and got the gun again. Shoe said she pointed the gun at Tatem so he would stop assaulting Gray.
Shoe said that Tatem then repeatedly told her to shoot him. She told police that when he started coming toward her, she had her two small grandchildren by her side and she fired the gun at him to protect them.
The single shot killed Tatem, according to the district attorney's report.
The district attorney ruled that Shoe acted in self-defense, and therefore no charges will be filed.
