The deadly shot was fired while Shoe was on the phone with 911, describing a psychical fight that Tatem had gotten into moments earlier with Shoe's boyfriend, Christopher Gray, after being told multiple times to leave their business more than a dozen times. 

Shoe described Tatem as being extremely angry and at one point screamed, "You better move M***** F*****, you're dead." 

The DA said after meeting with officers who investigated this case, and reviewing the facts, statements of all witnesses, a 911 call made by Shoe, crime scene photos, physical evidence, and the law as it relates to the "Castle Doctrine" and self-defense, the Cabarrus County DA's Office will not be pursuing criminal charges against Sarah Shoe.
