Be careful what you ask for, because you just might just get it.

Police are investigating after a person was shot in downtown Louisville.

The shooting happened at 5th and Jefferson streets shortly before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to police, a woman went to her vehicle in a parking garage and was approached by a man who displayed a knife and said, “Give me everything you have.”

The woman then pulled out her gun and shot him while she was in the parking garage, officials said.

Further details on the story remain scarce, but this appears to be a near-textbook self-defense shooting from the little bit of information we have thus far, and it seems eerily similar to the Walther CCP ad that Jenn included in her recent article on re-thinking her everyday carry pistol.

Guns save lives… if you have them.
