Armed woman turns the tables, fatally shoots daughter’s ex-boyfriend who held husband at gunpoint: police

Police say a woman in Indiana fatally shot a man who once dated her daughter after he drove onto her front yard and held the woman's husband at gunpoint.

An Indiana woman shot and killed a man who drove into her front yard and held her husband at gunpoint, according to police. 

The incident unfolded last Monday at about 6:30 p.m. in Salem, when Michael Chastain, 45, allegedly drove through the front yard of a couple’s home. Chastain allegedly grabbed the male homeowner upon exiting his car, forced him to the ground and held a gun to his head, WDRB reported. 

Inside the house, the homeowner’s wife witnessed the situation, retrieved her own handgun and shot Chastain.

“[Chastain] exited his vehicle and put a firearm toward the homeowner’s head. The wife of the homeowner observed the altercation that occurred, walked outside with a firearm and eventually shot Chastain,” Indiana State Police Sgt. John Davis told WLKY. 

The man was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
