Glendale police say preliminary results of their investigation of a shooting support accounts by a woman and other witnesses that the woman fatally shot a man who was attempting to rob her at gunpoint.

Police say 23-year-old Carol Miracle fatally shot 27-year-old Frank Taylor early Monday morning near a convenience store in the area of 59th Avenue and Camelback Road.

According to police, Miracle and other witnesses said Taylor had pointed a gun at Miracle's head during the attempted robbery and that she then drew her own handgun from a hip holster and shot him once.

Police also say Miracle reported that she was in fear for her life and that investigators found evidence supporting the statements by her and the witnesses.

The case will be submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for a decision on whether Miracle should face any charges.
