Video shows the moment a woman rushes out of bed and opens fire on three armed burglars who broke into her home
Incredible footage has been released showing the moment a Georgia woman rushed out of her bed in the middle of the night and opened fire at three armed men who broke into her house, killing one.
The surveillance footage, released by the Gwinnett County Police Department, shows the intruders – all of whom are carrying guns – bursting through the front door and rummaging through the house in the September 16 incident in Gwinnett.
Seconds after entering the home, the woman is seen coming out of her bedroom in pajamas with a handgun, and fires several shots at the armed suspects, according to WSB TV 2.
Two of the men managed to escape. It is unclear if they had been shot.
However a third intruder, identified Antonio Leeks, 28, of Atlanta, was shot and killed in the home invasion.
