Who is Kapri Francis? Iowa Woman Shoots Another Woman In Self-defense

Woman Shoots Another Woman In Self-defense

According to reports, a lady named Kapri Lashawn Francis who was assaulted inside an Iowa grocery store shot her attacker with a lawfully held gun in what authorities described as an act of self-defense. According to KCCI 8, the woman claims she fired one bullet because she was blindsided, beaten up, and held in a headlock inside the Hy-Vee food store in Des Moines on Sunday morning.

According to KCCI 8, the alleged attacker, identified as Kapri Francis, 30, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg after launching a “completely unprovoked attack” on the legally armed woman. According to the story, a male customer was also hurt when the bullet ricocheted and struck him in the foot. According to KCCI 8, the two women involved are known to one other.


Francis has been charged with assault inflicting bodily harm, but the woman who fired the gun has not been charged. Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek told the Des Moines Register: “The preliminary investigation of this incident indicates that the suspect and one of the victims (the shooter) were involved in a spontaneous dispute within the store prior to the shooting,”

Detectives “discovered that the shooter in this incident acted in self-defense after being violently assaulted” after speaking with witnesses and evaluating the evidence, according to the police. According to the Des Moines Register, Parizek described Francis’ connection with the alleged gunman as “best described as acquainted with a history of conflict between the two.”
