ST PAUL, MINNESOTA – While this story is a defensive gun use, it can almost be considered a “Why I Carry” story as well, because the victim may have been able to avoid hours of abuse if a firearm was more accessible.
Ivy Winter Reutzel-Morrell alleges that Anthony Ray Tullis, 25, who also lived in her home, took her into a bedroom and assaulted her for over five hours.
Tullis also threatened Reutzel-Morrell’s life during the altercation.
Fortunately, the victim was able to gain control a rifle during the terrifying incident and shoot the suspect. He was dead by the time authorities arrived.
Reutzel-Morrell is cooperating with police and it appears this is a clear cut case of self defense based on the facts currently available.
It is currently unclear if the victim and suspect were involved in a romantic relationship or were simply roommates.
