A Florida woman defended her own life and the lives of her family when 3 intruders armed with guns broke into the house and held the mother at gunpoint.
The video shows just how brazen these thugs were and their actions were all caught on home surveillance, but no security system is complete without a firearm.
Fortunately, this woman had a gun in the house and she was ready to use it. Watch news video below :
According to Fox45now,
One of three home invasion suspect was shot and killed during the incident, and has been identified by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office as Azikiwe Presley, 29, of Dayton.
Trotwood Police were called to a home at the dead end of Atlas Road around 6:00 Monday morning.
Police tell FOX 45 three masked men armed with firearms forcibly entered and attempted to rob the homeowner.
“Any time you have a homicide or a home invasion of this magnitude it’s unusual unless they’re looking for something specific,” said Trotwood Police Capt. John Porter.
Porter said the homeowner called 9-1-1.
“I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran,” the female caller told dispatchers. “They all three had guns, I’m confused … they must not have had bullets because after I pulled the trigger they just took off, instead of firing back. I don’t know if I hit one or not, I don’t see blood anywhere.”
The three suspects were caught on home surveillance outside the residence, before they kicked their way inside.
Police say two kids were asleep inside the home in the room where the invaders kicked their way in.
“Most of them woke up to the sound of them forcing entry into the home they kicked the back door,” said Capt. Porter.
The suspects headed straight for the female who called 9-1-1.
“He hit me in the head with the gun ’cause I was in the laundry room,” the caller stated.
The victim told Trotwood Police the suspects then demanded she lead them to “the money,” and that she complied, leading them into a back room where a safe was located and two other kids were sleeping.
Trotwood Police said two of the suspects tried to steal a safe, while the third held the victim and two kids at gunpoint. They say the homeowner was able to get away and grab a gun she had hidden in the room, then started firing shots at the suspects.
“I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran!” the homeowner told dispatchers.
One suspect was killed by the gunfire, and was later found outside by Trotwood Police.
