When police arrived at the home of a woman who called 911 to say she had shot and killed her fiancé, they found “injuries consistent with signs of domestic abuse” and ruled the shooting self-defense.

According to Fox 4, neighbors said they heard one gunshot during the incident, which occurred around 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning in Arlington, Texas.

Police then arrived to find the fiancé “dead inside the home.” The woman admitted shooting him and was taken into custody, then released once she and the children of the home were questioned.

Police cited her injuries as “consistent with signs of domestic abuse” and refused to further “victimize” her with an arrest. They also noted “there was a history of domestic violence” in the relationship.

Lorena Canales, the deceased fiancé’s sister, said, “I don’t know anything. We talk with my brother but only hi and how are you. I don’t know anything about their personal lives. I know they had issues, but we never really talked about it.”
