GARY | Police said a 53-year-old woman shot her ex-boyfriend after he broke into her house and started beating her.

Donald Bryant, 40, approached the woman in the 2300 block of West 19th Avenue while she was starting her car, according to a police report. Bryant said he wanted to talk with her about getting back together, the report said.

She ran into the house and he chased her inside and pushed in the door while she yelled for her sister to call 911, Lt. Sam Roberts said.

Bryant "began punching her with his fist and began to grab and choke her," Roberts said. The struggle continued into the bathroom, where the two fell into a tub. The victim pulled out a gun and shot Bryant in the stomach, police said.

He yelled "ouch, ouch" and ran away, Roberts said.

Bryant was arrested for residential entry and battery after being transported to Methodist Hospital Northlake Campus in Gary.

The woman was not arrested for shooting Bryant. She had bruising on her face, neck and body, Roberts said.
