    GRAY'S HARBOR, Wash. - A woman fatally shot a man after he broke into her home while violating a protection order, Gray's Harbor police say. 

    Detectives with the sheriff's office responded to a shooting Wednesday around 9:25 p.m. at a home in the 400 block of Elma-Hicklin Road West. 

    A 60-year-old man called police after a 47-year-old man broke into the home armed with a knife. The 60-year-old man confronted him and a struggle broke out. A 36-year-old woman who was also home got a gun and fatally shot the 47-year-old man. 

    The suspect had a court protection order in place that prohibited him from contacting the woman. 

    Detectives arrived with a search warrant and began investigating. The early investigation indicates the shooting was self-defense, and no arrests have been made.
