DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) — It’s shocking video that has gone viral on Twitter. A woman holds another woman at gunpoint, berates her, and continuously pistol whips her.
Throughout the video, the woman holding the gun repeats she is pregnant and yells “Why are you sleeping with my husband?”
A neighbor said the occupants of the house where it happened are usually quiet, and described what he saw on the day of the incident.
“I looked out the window and I seen her [woman holding the gun] car right there, and then she was gone,” said neighbor Larry Lopez.
“There was police here and an ambulance there then she [woman who was pistol whipped] was going towards the ambulance and the police stopped her and took pictures of her,” he added.
Mr. Lopez said he moved to the area for peace and quiet.
“I don’t want to be around that, that’s why I moved on a quiet street with people more my age.”
Dekalb County Police are investigating the incident.
A close friend of the pregnant woman with the gun told CBS46 she had been attacked and was kicked in the stomach, and that she was just retaliating.
The situation has left the neighborhood in fear.
“That’s the world we live in now, I don’t care what you do you can’t escape.”

There’s a developing story in Atlanta — that has people all over America on notice. A 20 something year old Black man was found hanging off the MLK Bridge by his neck. The initial report from local authorities was that the man “committed suicide.”
But video evidence suggests that he may have been HANGED.
What evidence are we talking about? Well first – the method of hanging. The victim was not handed using a rope, or a belt . . . but he was hanged using a METAL CHAIN.
Second, as you can see in the above video – the man who is reportedly a student at Morehouse College, appears to be wearing his school knapsack.
Atlanta police were called to the 600 block of MLK Drive at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.
But what’s MOST suspicious is HOW QUICKLY police determined this man’s death to be a suicide. Within HOURS of the body being located – and WITHOUT ANY WITNESSES – police closed the case and classified it as a suicide.
Despite the investigation being QUICK, reports say that:
The preliminary investigation shows the male had a chain wrapped around his neck, Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said. The chain was locked in several places and keys to the locks were found in one of the victim’s pockets, Chafee said. Investigators canvassed the area and located one person who said they overheard someone yelling “don’t do it,” Chafee said. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has not been able to notify next of kin.
