Riverview, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-The Hillsborough State Attorney's Office and detectives are talking to determine if charges will be filed against a woman who came to the aid of another woman at the Grand Oaks Apartments on Sherwood Lane.
Fifty one year-old Vicki Rock grabbed her .45 caliber pistol when she heard a woman screaming. When Rock saw a man beating his girlfriend with a metal object, Rock told him to stop. When the man then attacked Rock, she opened fire.
Deputies say Daniel Robertson managed to hobble away, but died a short time later in the parking lot. Investigators have interviewed several witnesses who back up the woman's account of the incident.
Detectives believe Robertson broke into the girlfriend's apartment. There was damage to a window and to the front door of the apartment. Rock and the other woman suffered facial injuries in the attack.
