Mr. Martin arrived at the Oxford Apartments to pick up someone when Rodriguez approached the driver’s side window on foot and started an argument. Rodriguez, who lived at the complex, then showed a pistol, threatened to shoot Martin and then hit him in the chin with the pistol. Martin, a concealed handgun license holder, then produced his own pistol, shot Rodriguez several times, then fled to a safe location before calling police and ambulance personnel.
