    GOOD: Man Defends His Family - Avondale, AZ

    Avondale man shoots at armed robbers trying to take his baby - Phoenix Arizona news, breaking news, local news, weather radar, traffic from ABC15 News | ABC15.com

    An Avondale man shot at armed robbers Saturday night when they tried to take his infant during a robbery, according to a police report released Monday.

    The Avondale family had started to unload groceries at their home near Main Street and Litchfield Road when three men approached the car with guns and demanded money.

    When the victim, 52, said he didn't have any cash, one robber said, "get the baby", according to Avondale Police Sergeant Memo Espinoza.

    The victim pulled out a handgun and the three robbers started shooting at the man and the house. The father shot back.

    The robbers ran away, and one was crawling on the ground as if he had been shot, according to Espinoza.

    The victim and baby were not hurt in the shootout.

    The three armed men left in a black SUV with chrome trim and chrome wheels.

    They were described as Black males, between 19- and 25-years old.

    One wore all black clothing, one had black pants and a brown shirt and the third wore blue shorts and a white shirt.

    Avondale police notified Valley hospitals to look out for someone with a gunshot wound.

    Another similar incident occurred Sunday at an Avondale family's home near Indian School Road and 107th Avenue.

    Three men pulled into the family's garage and forced their way into the home rummaging through their belongings.

    The family wasn't hurt, however their truck was stolen by one of the three suspects.

    The truck was pulled over by police near the home and the man was taken into custody.

    Espinosa said the two incidents are not related.

    Anyone with information should call Avondale police at 623-333-7000.
    Kind of a scary situation, no cash to give so they want to take the baby. This story really enforces the need to stay aware and stay armed. Glad things turned out ok and that the perp's were all bad shots.

    Glad the dad was armed or this would have been a very bad story. Hopefully the career of these thugs will be short lived.

    Too bad he missed them all.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
