A 26-year-old Alabama woman says she shot and killed the man who allegedly abducted and raped her on Nov. 3.
The woman was reported abducted earlier the same day in the Adamsville jurisdiction, AL.com reports. Jefferson County police found her in the parking lot of an apartment complex in nearby Forestdale at around 6 p.m.
Police later found the body of the man in one of the apartments. Police believe the cause of death was a gunshot wound.
The woman told authorities the man was her abductor and he forced her to the apartment, where he sexually assaulted her. She got hold of a gun at some point during the incident and shot him, reports AL.com.
The investigation is ongoing and it is unclear whether charges will be filed.
