BRANDON (FOX 13) -

A woman shot and killed a man who was brutally beating his ex-girlfriend in Hillsborough County Saturday morning.

It happened on Sherwood Lane in Brandon.

Deputies say the man, identified as 56-year-old Daniel Robertson, went to his ex-girlfriend Cristy Vasilakos' home at the Grand Oaks Apartments, and beat her door down.

Witnesses say Robertson began attacking her with a metal object.

Vickie Rock, who lives in the apartment next door heard Vasilakos' screams, grabbed a gun, and rushed to save her.

Deputies say Robertson turned to Rock, and smashed the metal object into her face. She opened fire, killing him.

Both women were badly bruised.

So far, no charges have been filed against Rock. The investigation has been turned over to The State Attorney's Office, who could decide to bring charges at a later time.
