A 45-year-old Texas woman called 9-1-1 to report that she had been drugged and kidnapped—and that she fired upon her attacker, fatally wounding him, as reported by The Blaze.   

The incident happened just before 1 p.m. on March 15, but deputies reportedly originally did not know the whereabouts of the alleged woman. They ultimately located her near a winery. As reported by The Blaze, The Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement, "A deputy arrived at the location and observed the vehicle in question as it was sitting in the outside lane of westbound traffic. The deputy observed a male in the front-seat area who appeared deceased and was confirmed deceased by emergency services personnel."

Police met with the alleged female victim near the purported crime scene, approximately 70 miles east of Austin, Texas.

The woman was reported to have been transported to a local hospital. The alleged attacker was identified as 49-year-old man who lived in the Houston area, according to the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said the investigation is "ongoing." No further details were provided by the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office. (; Houston, TX; 3/15/24)
