4'11 Carolann Miracle was leaving a Circle K gas station in Glendale, Arizona with her family when Frank Taylor asked her for a cigarette.
Miracle told Taylor she didn't have any, and that's when he pulled a gun on her.
“He stuck the gun to my neck and said, ‘It’s loaded, bitch, don’t move',” Miracle told KNXV.
He had no idea what hit him.
“I dropped my soda, released my gun from my holster, cocked it and shot him. Then we ran the opposite way,” she said. When she got home she called the police.
Taylor died as a result of the shooting.
“I feel bad, I didn’t mean to kill him,” she said. “I feel bad for his mom. I feel bad because I just found out that he has a 1-week-old baby. I didn’t mean to do it, but I had to defend my sister and me.”
The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is still reviewing the case and has yet to determine if she will face charges.
