Two robbers attempted to invade a Los Angeles home, but the homeowner fought back and engaged them in a shootout. The robbers were forced to retreat without stealing anything.
The surveillance footage is absolutely chilling as it captures an armed intruder wearing a mask sprinting towards a man who was just about to enter his home in Mid City.
As soon as the intruders entered the home, the homeowner took out his gun to protect himself and his property. A fierce exchange of gunfire ensued between the homeowner and the invaders.
According to Eyewitness News, the man reported that the intruders attempted to approach him and enter his house. However, he was not willing to take any chances with his family’s safety. With a five-month-old baby, a wife, and a nanny in his home, he made it clear that he was not going to let anything happen to them.
“My family was the most important thing in my life, and I was willing to do anything to protect them. Even if it meant sacrificing my own life. There was nothing of material value in my house that was worth risking my life for, but the safety and well-being of my loved ones was a different story. I was ready to face any danger or threat that came our way, as long as it meant keeping my family safe.”
At approximately 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, a shootout occurred.
As the video starts rolling, we see the homeowner making his way to the front door while fumbling for his keys. Suddenly, two intruders can be seen jumping over the gate and making their way towards the house.
As soon as an intruder dashes towards the front door, the homeowner reacts swiftly by flinging his tea aside, grabbing his firearm, and firing shots in defense.
“Suddenly, I sensed a person dashing towards me from behind. They swiftly pressed an object against my back, and I felt the cold metal of a gun barrel touching me. Meanwhile, another person was rapidly approaching.”
The moment the gunshots are heard, the intruders scatter swiftly. One of them retaliates and leaps over the side fence while the other jumps over the front gate and flees away.
The LAPD’s Olympic Division received a report from the family after the attack.
“They are bound to get caught sooner or later. It would be wise for them to consider a different profession before they face the consequences of their actions and potentially end up in jail.”
