A man was shot and killed during a domestic disturbance in Visalia. It happened at a home on Vassar Avenue near Burke, Thursday morning. Police say an injured, elderly woman called 911 after she pulled the trigger in self defense. The man died an hour later at the hospital. The woman was also taken to the hospital where she was treated and released. At this point, she isn't facing any charges. This is the second violent situation the woman has survived.
