A 36-year-old woman in McCleary, Washington, shot and killed a man who allegedly violated a protection order.

KOMO News reports that the incident occurred Wednesday night around 9:30 p.m.

Police received a call from a 60-year-old man saying a younger man with a knife had entered the residence. The alleged intruded had a protection order that prohibited him from being near the woman, who was at the residence.

The two men got into “a struggle.” The woman then shot the knife-wielding man dead.

Q13 Fox reports that the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting as an act of self-defense.
