Two masked men went into the home where the 20-year-old resident was. At first, he though it was a joke, but quickly realized that these armed men meant business.
When they demanded cash, the resident complied. At least, that’s what he wanted them to believe. He said that he was going for what they wanted and reached under the couch.
Instead of pulling out money, he instead pulled out his AK-47 and began shooting at the suspects.
Three of the men were killed, and the other two were injured. Both injured suspects were taken to the hospital and then arrested.
The defender pursued the invaders into the front yard. The pile of brass in the front yard has been described as being from several different guns
The defender continued the gunfight with three occupants of the car that delivered the two home invaders. The group fled the scene in the car.
The car crashed a couple of blocks away. One suspect was found in the car, dead. One wounded suspect was found at Capitol and 71st Street, he was the suspect that died at the hospital. The third suspect from the car was wounded, fled the scene, and was being treated in the hospital.
The resident was not wounded during the incident, and police do not expect any charges to be filed. What this 20-year-old did was something that couldn’t be done unarmed, and he very well could have saved his own life that day.
