A Georgia woman exercised her Second Amendment rights early Friday morning and repelled three armed home invaders, killing one.

Surveillance video from a Gwinnett County home just outside Atlanta shows a woman charging forward at three men who just broken into the house at about 4 a.m., authorities said. The local restaurant manager unloaded all her rounds in self-defense, resulting in the death of one suspect in the driveway.

The two surviving suspects, one of whom literally crashed through a glass door trying to escape, are still on the loose. The surveillance video also shows a roommate consoling the woman after she calls 911.

“Did they shoot you?” the 911 dispatcher asks.

“Yeah, they shoot me,” she replied, seemingly misinterpreting the question as “Did they shoot at you.”

Authorities said citizens with information pertaining to the robbery can contact the Gwinnett County Police Department.

“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police Department told a local ABC affiliate Friday. “They’re not wearing anything on their faces so we’re highly anticipating someone watching the evening newscast will recognize these people.”
