HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a woman who fatally shot a man at a gas station had rebuffed his sexual advances and opened fire when he flashed a knife.

Police on Monday said the 23-year-old woman wasn’t hurt in the argument captured on gas station security video. The name of the man killed Sunday night wasn’t immediately released.

Police say the woman stopped at the station to fill her car with gas and repeatedly told the man to leave her alone. The video shows the man approaching, the pair arguing, she pulls a rifle from the trunk of the car and the man tries to hit her.

Police say the woman feared for her life when she opened fire.

The incident will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
