As she was doing so she pulled the trigger and shot the man. He was hit in the arm by the bullet at which point he ran outside yelling that he had been shot.

Some people in the area that heard the gunshot then called the police. When the police arrived they found that a 32-year-old Sioux Falls man had been shot in the arm.
