“I’m writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog,” wrote Dasia Washington, 22, of Las Vegas on Sept. 26.
“Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency,” she continued. “I shudder to think how differently things might’ve turned out had I not barricaded the door.”
Washington and Douglas Eugene Jackson, also 22, dated for three weeks back in February.
They broke up, but Jackson wouldn’t let go.
By March, Washington was reporting him to the police. But for six months, Jackson called her from blocked numbers, showed up at her house and job, and broke into her house multiple times.
Shortly after 1 a.m. on Sept. 26, Jackson broke down her apartment door. Washington grabbed her 9 mm pistol and fired twice. One bullet caught Jackson in the chest. He survived and was charged.
