‘I’m gonna kill you, if you don’t move’: Woman threatened for driving slowly, cops say

Roswell police are searching for a man they say pulled a gun on a woman and her 2-year-old daughter when she didn’t drive fast enough. 

The woman was pulling out of an apartment complex on Mansell Road when a man came up behind her and got upset, Channel 2 Action News reported.

“We were coming out of apartments,” the woman, who asked not to be identified, told Channel 2. “There were kids playing and speed bumps, so we had to go slow. There was a man who was in a rush. He kept beeping at us and putting his acceleration up trying to go faster and faster.”

The woman, who was driving the speed limit, took video of the man’s pickup truck driving out of the apartment complex, Channel 2 reported. The woman said the truck was tailgating her. 

At one point, the driver told the woman: “I’m gonna kill you, if you don’t move,” Channel 2 reported. 

The woman said he then took out his gun, told her she’s “not from here,” and that she’s “not gonna come out alive.”

Roswell police told Channel 2 they have few leads since they don’t have a tag number from the footage.

The victim is still confused why the man even thought to get violent. 

“It just makes no sense when there's a child in my truck and he's trying to do harm,” she said. “It's not right.”
