    A 36-year-old LaPlace man remained hospitalized Tuesday after he was
    shot in the chest by his ex-girlfriend Monday night, St. John the
    Baptist Parish sheriff's detectives said.
    But authorities think Violet T. Fleming, 37, shot Sean Schnyder because
    he was trying to force his way into her home, said Capt. Mike Tregre,
    Sheriff's Office spokesman.

    No arrests have been made.

    "It appears to be an act of self-defense," Tregre said.

    "But we are still investigating. He tried to force his way into her
    apartment and she shot him."

    The shooting occurred at Fleming's home on Linda Lane in LaPlace, Tregre

    According to an incident report, Fleming called deputies to her home
    about 10 p.m. because Schnyder was trying to get in. But before deputies
    could arrive, they got another call reporting the shooting.

    When deputies arrived, Schnyder tried to run, the report said, but they
    were able to catch him.
    Schnyder was brought to Charity Hospital. His condition was unavailable
    The couple had a history of violence, authorities said.

    The two used to live together, but shortly after they broke up about two
    weeks ago, Fleming had placed a restraining order against Schnyder,
    authorities said.

    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a lady explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    I don't know their history re:domestic violence, whether it was one sided or mutual. But if he was violating a restraining order and trying to break in I think she did the right thing. Good for her. Maybe now he'll know what "NO" means.

    [Martha Stewart Voice] Here's a helpful household hint. If you shoot an attacker and he or she is still standing... shoot them again. Repeat as needed until done. [/Martha Stewart Voice]

    One of the things I love about Louisiana is that one doesn't have to wait until the criminal gets into the house to shoot.
