ATLANTA -- A woman who helped her brother find his stolen car was killed Wednesday night for her trouble.

Police say the car thieves gunned down the woman when she confronted them in southwest Atlanta.

Investigators tell Channel 2 Action News that the 26-year old victim and her brother were driving around looking for his stolen car. It was taken earlier from a gas station. When they spotted it they called police and began to follow the car.

Witnesses told police the victim and her brother cut off the stolen car and stopped it. That's when the thieves jumped out and opened fire.

The victim was hit at least two times. Her car was riddled with gun shots.

Police are searching for the gunmen.
