Welcome ba to "Gma." The woman at the center of this video shared more than 12 million times is speaking out about why she pulled out a gun during a confrontation in a chipotle parking lot. ABC's Alex Presha joins us with what she's saying. Good morning to you, Alex. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. This is another one of those cases we're talking about because of cell phone video. The black family held at gunpoint says it was racial. The white woman who pulled her gun said she feared for her life. She got the gun on me. Get away. Reporter: This morning, two sides to a video gone viral. 32-year-old Jillian woosenberg seen here pulling a gun on a black family in a parking lot says she did it because she feared for her life. So you felt like you had no choice at that point but to pull the gun? Yeah. That was what was in your mind? Yeah, just I need to live. Reporter: The incident happened in Michigan. Wuestenberg says she was leaving the restaurant with bags of food. On the way out she passed by takelia hill and her 15-year-old her daughter shade she bumped me. I held my left hand up and said walk away. Just walk away. It escalated from there. Reporter: Wuestenberg says the hill family threatened her and her husband, called her a racist and ignorant but she was able to get in her minivan. She said hill hit the back window. The video shows her loading a round into the chamber of her handgun and pointing it at the hill family. Wuestenberg eventually gets back into the minivan and she and her husband drive away. When prosecutors saw this they charged both Jillian and her husband Eric with felonious assault. Takelia hill's attorney said prosecutors absolutely should have done more. It's disgusting conduct from the defendants this this case. Hill's attorneys also believe race played a part in this. They had to have an honest and reasonable belief they would sustain an injury. So where did that come from? The only thing it could have come from was her race. Reporter: Now, Wuestenberg's attorney says she believes hill violated Michigan's ethnic intimidation statute. Wuestenberg insists that she's not a racist. Eva? Thank you for that.
