GSR on the victim's eyes...

One other point I'd bring up is how the ME's office found GSR(gun shot residue) on the victim's eyeballs & eye sockets.
This showed that her eyes were wide open when Ward shot her.
Most suicide incidents with firearms have the person shut the eyes or due to the quick reaction of the human eye it shuts fully by reflex.

As for the "struggle" for the gun, I too would think it could be very dicey for any sane, rational person to deal with.
Doing security details & in law enforcement(military police) I've seen a few incidents where a subject was unstable or close to suicide.
You need to be level headed & calm and avoid any rash or sudden movements.
I worked at a low end hotel a few years ago as a armed security guard and had a guest who shot himself with a .357magnum revolver.
He was docile & relaxed when I saw him but later took a lot of illegal drugs, pulled a bedspread over himself then fired one .357magum JHP into his face.
