A woman who shot and killed a man earlier this year in Tate County will not face any charges in connection with the incident.
Sheriff Brad Lance said the case was presented in April to the Tate County Grand Jury, which chose not to indict her. The woman’s name was not released by authorities.
Deputies and investigators were dispatched Monday, Jan. 24, at approximately 8:28 p.m., after E-911 received a call of shots fired following a domestic disturbance in the 100 block of Oak Valley Drive on the outskirts of Coldwater. A female caller stated a male subject had fired multiple rounds outside the home before forcibly entering the residence with handguns and opening fire on her and two family members.
The subject was shot and killed in self-defense, according to an incident report. Officials from TCSO identified the man as William Hoskins, 63, of Coldwater, who was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Pat Kizziah.
Hoskins was fatally wounded inside the home after an exchange of gunfire with one of the female occupants during the altercation but none of the people inside the home were injured.
Investigators confirmed Hoskins and the woman knew one another.
