Woman shoots at burglars, killing one, during home invasion

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. (CNN) – Startling security video shows a woman shooting at three men during a home burglary.

One suspect died, and police near Atlanta are looking for two home invasion suspects.

The men are considered to be armed and dangerous.

The video is unnerving as it shows the men walking around the home with guns drawn, looking for some cash, but that’s when the woman came out and started to fire her gun.”She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Cpl. Deon Washington, of the Gwinnett County Police Department, said.

“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Cpl. Deon Washington, of the Gwinnett County Police Department, said.

The Gwinnett county woman can be seen rushing from her bedroom, unloading all her bullets on the three men who kicked in her front door.

It’s the dramatic, newly released video from around 4 a.m. Friday morning.

The woman, a local restaurant manager is staying in a housemate’s Spring Drive home, when she hears the three intruders and guns clearly in hand.

Police saying they came here for cash and met their match.

Operator: “Did they shoot you?
Victim: “Yeah, they shoot me.”

As they exchange fire with drywall debris clouding the dark home, one man runs through a glass door.

The man in the wig dies of his injuries in the driveway. The woman is seen being consoled by a housemate, who gently takes away the gun lives to tell and show police what happen.

“It’s not common that we receive this caliber of surveillance video showing the crime unfold, an actual home invasion,” Cpl. Washington said.

Now police need to find the two surviving suspects.

“They’re not wearing anything on their faces so we’re highly anticipating someone watching the evening newscast will recognize these people.”

The man who died was shot in the torso.

Police are trying to find out if the home was specifically targeted. They are also hoping someone might recognize the men who are still on the run.
