(WLKY) -- LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A pregnant mother describes the moments leading up to when police say she was forced to shoot her ex-boyfriend during a frightening ride through Louisville with their 1-year-old son in the car.
"It was one of those situation, I wasn't going to let him kill all of us," the mother said while speaking with WLKY's Tre Ward. "I wasn't even thinking about me at that point. I was thinking about my child."
