A woman in Gwinnett County, Georgia is alive and well after she courageously defended herself and a housemate from a group of armed home invaders, and footage was recorded of the entire incident, from two angles no less.
According to this story, the woman, a local restaurant manager, heard the three intruders break into the home at about 4 a.m. last Friday. The night-vision surveillance video from the home clearly shows the intruders armed with handguns.
In the video, we see the men switch on a few lights and look through the kitchen, they decide to move deeper into the house. Then we see the armed woman engage the suspects while moving, firing a handgun at them.
She exchanges gunfire with the intruders as debris flies in the dark home. The intruders begin to flee as soon as shots are fired. One runs through the kitchen and reportedly crashed through a glass door. The others exited the home through the door they entered while the homeowner continues to fire, killing one of the suspects.
In a later segment by Channel 2 Action News, a reporter talked to the male occupant of the home, Ruben Mejia, and learned that the intruders actually broke into his bedroom off camera, put a gun to his head, and demanded money.
He said they checked everything in his room, looking for cash.
But luckily Ruben’s boss at the seafood company where he works, and the home’s owner (who remains unidentified), was armed in the other bedroom.
