Woman shoots ex-boyfriend in self-defense as he tries to break into apartment

From staff reports

A 32-year-old man is facing burglary and battery charges — and is recovering from a gunshot wound — after police say he broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment Friday.

Henry Johnson was treated at a local hospital after his ex-girlfriend shot him as he allegedly broke into her home.

Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood said the woman was inside her home at Pensacola Village Apartments on East Fairfield Drive at about 5:30 a.m. when Johnson broke through the front door. 

The woman shot Johnson once in the leg, and police arrived soon after, according to PPD. Police questioned Johnson soon after, and Wood said the female won't face any charges for the incident.

Johnson is being held at the Escambia County Jail without bond, according to jail records.
