A Texas man was found dead Friday after authorities say a woman called 911 for help, saying that she had shot her kidnapper.

The woman, identified as a 45-year-old resident of Montgomery, had called 911 around 12:40 p.m. and said she had shot someone after being kidnapped and drugged, the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office said.

While the woman’s whereabouts were initially unknown, deputies eventually found her near a winery in the 10800 block of East U.S. Highway 290. 

The woman then spoke with deputies, describing the vehicle and the weapon used.
