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. While pretending to reach for the money they demanded, he grabbed his AK-47 and began firing.
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.
