The woman who opened fire on shoplifters running out of a Home Depot in Auburn Hills, Michigan, was sentenced Wednesday to serve probation for 18 months, according to local reports.
Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez, 46, pleaded no contest shortly after the incident in October.
“I tried to help, and I learned my lesson that I will never help anybody again,” she told the media afterwards.
During the Oct. 6 incident, she witnessed the store’s loss prevention officer chasing a suspect carrying stolen merchandise. Duva-Rodriguez, who had a license to carry a concealed handgun, shot at the tires of the getaway car.
Local prosecutors called the act a “misguided attempt to disable the vehicle to stop two reported shoplifters” in October, after Duva-Rodriguez was charged.
In addition to probation, she cannot apply for a gun permit until 2023.
As for the shoplifter and his driver, they were arrested and charged.
