Video shows woman shooting at burglars during home invasion

By WSB-TV

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. —

Police are hoping someone can help identify two home invaders in Gwinnett County, Georgia, that were caught on camera when a woman in the house shot at them.

"She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property," Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police Department told WSB-TV.

Surveillance video from inside the home shows the woman rush from her bedroom and then unload all her bullets on the three men who kicked in her front door.

The woman is a restaurant manager who was staying in a housemate's Spring Drive home for work-related reasons.

She heard the three intruders break into the home around 4 a.m. Friday. Video shows the men have guns clearly in hand.

Police said the men were looking for cash when they met their match.

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

Another man died of his injuries in the driveway.

The video then shows the woman being consoled by a housemate who gently takes away the gun.

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

Police are asking if you know anything to please call the Gwinnett County Police Department.
