A Houston homeowner used his trusty AK-47 semi-automatic rifle to take out five home invaders, according to reports.
Houston police were called after a man used his rifle to defend himself against no less than 5 intruders.
The intrusion started when the 20-year-old resident was confronted by two masked men in his home. He told police he thought at first that it was a joke.
The intruders demanded money and he played like he was getting it for them.
Instead, the resident pulled out his rifle and quickly opened fire on the home invaders.
He then learned that the two men had three accomplices and the homeowner opened up on all of them.
His assailants returned fire, police said.
According to Ammoland:
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.
“I heard around five or six gunshots. I’m pretty sure there were more before that,” a witness said, according to ABC 13.
The homeowner was not injured in the altercation, but he killed two of the invaders and wounded at least one of the other three.
Thank God for the Second Amendment.
