Nebraska woman with concealed-carry permit arrested on assault charge after shooting fleeing shoplifting suspect

A Nebraska woman was arrested and charged with first-degree assault Friday after police say she shot a fleeing shoplifting suspect in the arm earlier this month.

Investigators say Shelby Jones, 38, was shopping at a convenience store early on Aug. 1 when Tilian Tilian, 22, allegedly tried to shoplift two bottles of liquor.

Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said the store's clerk tried to restrain Tilian and the two got into an altercation.

Bliemeister added that Jones saw the altercation, drew her handgun and positioned herself between Tilian and the exit.

“During the physical altercation, Tilian broke free and ran past Jones, exiting the store,” Bliemeister said.

He said Jones then shot Tilian in the back of the arm, missing the store clerk who ran outside at the same time.

“After conducting interviews, reviewing video surveillance and collecting forensic evidence, investigators concluded Tilian was fleeing the property when he was shot by Jones,” Bliemeister said.

Tilian was treated at a hospital and released. KETV reported that police anticipate charging him.

Police said Tilian still had one bottle liquor in his hand when he was shot, The Omaha World-Herald reported.

And yet SCOTUS has ruled the LEO have no duty to protect. Yes, she made a bad shoot, however, Mr and Mrs America are getting fed up with the lawlessness more and more everyday.

Lawlessness is an issue thanks to our social justice warriors and I don't see it getting any better in the near future. Offenders are getting bolder because the consequences are minimal to none. LEOs try to do their job, but the courts release the perps back into society with impunity. So now many LEOs will not pursue property crimes and petty thefts. Shooting a shop lifter as they are running away doesn't qualify as protecting self or others. Self protection is god given right...
I carry a gun because a LEO is too Heavy!

First degree assault seems like the right charge. Wonder what the jury will say. If convicted, she's lost her firearms rights.

This is exactly how it should be. Society protects your God-given rights until you prove you'll use them to unfairly infringe on others' rights, and then you lose them.
