    ATLANTA - NBA TV personality Kristen Ledlow says she was robbed at gunpoint at her midtown Atlanta apartment complex.

    The host of "NBA Inside Stuff" said on her Twitter and Instagram accounts Sunday that she was held up the day before "by three men who knew who I was, where I lived and were waiting for me when I got home."

    Atlanta police said the incident happened at the Gables Midtown apartment complex in the 1900 block of Monroe Drive around 3:20 p.m.

    "We went from not having any security guards, to have a security guard on the weekends, to now we have two security guards at all hours," said one man who lives at the apartment complex.

    Ledlow says in addition to stealing her car, purse and phone, the thieves took her "sense of security."

    She says she'll be taking a break from social media as a result of the incident because she says she "will not become a slave to fear."
