When a Crazy Ex Attacked a Mom, Her Armed Son Fought Back & Saved Her Life


Shawna Brush repeatedly called the 911 asking for help, while her ex-boyfriend, Brian Davidson, was trying to break into her home.

Davidson had just been in jail, days beforehand, for legal charges against him stemming from a previous attack on Brush, including aggravated assault and stalking.

Yet unlike many stories that start this way, this one didn’t end in tragedy. By the time police arrived, the ex-boyfriend had been shot and killed by Brush’s 18-year old son, who had, in an exchange of gunfire, defended his mother and his other siblings.


According to the police report, after being shot by Brush’s son, Davidson also shot himself. At this time, it’s not known which wound actually killed him.
