CLAYTON COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - A woman who says she was abducted and raped is out of harm's way after taking things into her own hands.
Neighbors recall seeing a woman flagging down a driver outside a house in Clayton County, but didn't know what had happened.
Police say the woman told them she was kidnapped from her home in Cobb County and brought to a home where she says she was raped.
Police say sometime in the early morning hours she was able to get her hands on a gun and started firing.
"I can't even imagine being put in that situation, no matter what has happened, having to take another life, but like I said, when you're in a desperate situation it calls for very desperate measures,"said a neighbor.
The man died from the gunshots. Police have not released his name, nor have they said who the gun belonged to or how she got her hands on it.
