My sister is the girlfriend in this story... Apparently they got into an argument bc she got home from work an hour late, and he had been drinking. It escalated to the point where he choked her, threw her on the ground and held a knife to her face.. She got away long enough to grab her phone and call 911, at which point he went for his shotgun. He came at her at first, but then decided to run.. I got to her house right when the gun shots rang out.. a little before 10. And yes I ran all the way down a dirt road to get to her bc cops had her road blocked off.. at the time I had no idea what was going on, I just knew I had to get to her bc we saw the cops and helicopters but she wouldn't answer her phone... That was the most intense night of my life, waiting in there while they attempted to get him.. k-9 units, and helicopters were there initially, then SWAT showed up, complete with a tank and everything... The whole time we had no idea what was going on, only that we had heard shots and that he was out there somewhere.. at 230 am they finally got him and airlifted him out. We didn't find out he didn't make it until the next morning..



I don't know how I should feel. This isn't like a situation where he beat her on a daily basis and she finally had enough or anything. They used to fight but I know my sister and I know she most likely dished it out as hard as he gave it (verbally of course). He only hit her one time before over a year ago and she hit him back and they made up... this was really just an argument that went too far and ended the worst way possible. On the one hand I am so so grateful my sister is okay. I would have never forgiven him for hurting her anyway.. and I am just so relieved he didn't kill her... On the other hand, while I didn't lose my sister, I did lose someone I considered family... And he had daughters too. Plus, I know my sister really did love him, which is saying something bc I don't think she ever loved anyone. She's not the loving type, so for her to tell us she loved him was a big deal... She was even married for 8 years before and never loved him. I am so sad for her, bc Idk how she will ever get over this... I am sad for his girls, just sad in general.. He was a fun guy to be around, he just had an anger problem... Minus the arguments they would have, he made my sister happy, and we were all so glad to see her happy after so many years of seeing her miserable. I feel so many emotions right now, and I just don't know how to deal with them all. People keep asking me why I'm upset, should I not be? I don't get it.. my fianc

I'm so sorry for your loss. You should try to be there with her as much as you possibly can. I think thou should go to his funeral. Good people make bad choices sometimes, and they are still good people. . I hope you will both find peace someday.
