The Gwinnett County Police Department released the surveillance footage Thursday, which showed three black males breaking into an Atlanta home in the middle of the night.
All three suspects appeared to be armed.
The trio rummaged around a room full of cardboard boxes when suddenly, an Asian woman, later identified in police reports as a 40-year-old restaurant owner, emerged from another room, carrying a gun of her own.
"At that point, she began firing rounds from her handgun and struck at least one suspect in the torso, killing him," a press statement from the Gwinnett County said. "At least one of the other two suspects began exchanging gunfire with the homeowner as suspects fled the scene."
The man who was shot, later identified as 28-year-old Antonio Leeks, later died.
The woman, who told dispatchers she was also shot, and another man living in the home were brought into police headquarters for questioning.
The woman is not being charged because she acted in self defense, cops told InsideEdition.com.
