‘I was scared’: Concealed carry permit owner shot man in self-defense

Police have charged a man who was shot Wednesday outside Milwaukee Police Headquarters.

Investigators determined the woman who shot the man was acting in self-defense.

She was only in police custody for several minutes after the shooting.

Witnesses backed up her account of what happened.

Police said Joseph Drier, 59, attacked the woman after arguing that she should not have a handicapped parking placard in her car.

“It happened so fast. All I knew was the panic. I was fighting for my life. I was afraid,” the woman told WISN 12 News.

She did not want to be identified Friday.

The 28-year-old woman said Drier attacked her as she returned to her car.
