GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A woman who discovered three men inside her Atlanta home wasn’t having it.

The video released by the Gwinnett Police Department shows three men with guns walking through the house for about two minutes before the woman comes out of a door in the top/center part of the frame.

The man in the white hat is seen starting to approach her with his gun drawn and then she starts shooting. He turns and runs for cover with another man.

A third man runs through the room, from the right side of the screen to the left, but the woman ignores him and chases after the other two.

About 3:15 into the video, the whole thing is seen from another angle. She fires at least four shots at the men as they run out the door.

A guy in a white T-shirt and boxers looks like he just woke up. The attempted armed robbery happened on Sept. 16. Police released the video in an attempt to identify the suspects.

According to WSB-TV, the woman hit one of the suspects and he died in the driveway.

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