    GOOD: Homeowners Security System Allows Him To See The Zombies Coming - Tucson, AZ

    KVOA News 4, Tucson, Arizona - Incredible home invasion caught on camera

    Surveillance video here:

    Pop Up Video



    A homeowner, alerted of an impending home invasion by his security cameras, arms himself and takes matters into his hands last Thursday when four armed suspects attempt to break into his home.

    The video the owner caught is incredible, and you can see it by watching the video link to the left. You see a vehicle pull up, and four men run out. One of them is carrying what appears to be an AR-15 or M-16, a weapon which could be fully automatic.

    The robbery happened last Thursday in broad daylight at a home on West Vande Loo Street. All the action was caught by the homeowners outdoor surveillance system.

    "The victim was able to get back inside his house, close his door, semi barricade it, reach for [a] weapon that was easily accessible," says Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Earl Gieron.

    The homeowner shot at the suspects. He even put a bullet through the windshield of the suspects car, which is also caught on camera. The four men retreated and took off. All of them remain on the run.

    Sheriff's officials say the homeowner has surveillance cameras installed all around his house.

    Dep. Gieron says, "That was just for his own security."

    People living in the neighborhood heard all the gunshots, and saw the aftermath. Some stray bullets even hit a home across the street.

    One man says, "I was asleep around noon Thursday, and heard gunshots."

    Lawrence Cruz lives down the street from where the attempted home invasion happened.

    "I am very watchful where we live and I think everybody has right to defend their property," says Cruz.

    Detectives did find the suspect's vehicle at a home near Cardinal and Valencia, but the four men are still on the run.

    One of the suspects has been identified as 23-year-old Jesus Mendivil. It's believed he was shot in the arm.

    The three other men are all described as Hispanic males between 17 and 25-years-old.

    Seems pretty irresponsible of the homeowner to be shooting at fleeing suspects, especially once they are outside of his home. The homeowner is very lucky that the round only hit a garage door and not an innocent.

    I suppose the author of the article felt that the homeowner should have just sat in his recliner and waited to die when he saw them coming, instead of "taking matters into his hands".

    At least the author seems to have correctly identified the long rifle in the video, even if he did have to sensationalize it by saying "it could be fully automatic".
