Calif. sex offender shot, killed by alleged victim in Idaho

9-23-2005 Idaho:
CLARK FORK, Idaho Authorities say registered California sex offender was shot and killed this week by a woman he was attacking in Clark Fork, Idaho.

A 34-year-old Clark Fork woman shot Christopher Michael Schmidt, 42, Tuesday night during a struggle after she gave him a ride home.

Authorities say Schmidt stopped at her home Tuesday to ask her about some job prospects. Later in the evening, she and her roommate heard a noise outside their house and found Schmidt hiding in the bushes.

He told her his pickup truck had broken down and he needed a ride home.

Valdez said the woman reluctantly agreed to give Schmidt a lift, but took a handgun with her. Later, she had to use it when he began attacking her in the driveway of his home.

Schmidt was listing on Idaho's sex offender registry for a 1989 conviction in Sonoma County of assault to commit rape and sodomy. ..more.. by KESQ TV
