A homeowner in California was facing three intruders in his home, and despite repeated warnings for them to leave, one of them men advanced towards the homeowner.

That’s when the homeowner executed his right to defend himself. He opened fire on the suspect, striking him once in the abdomen.

The suspects immediately fled the area in a white Mercedes Benz once the shooting started.

The injured suspect was dropped off at the hospital and is being treated for non life threatening injuries.

One of the other 2 suspects was caught by police and a third suspect is still being sought.

According to, it appears that the victim knew the suspects, but police say the homeowner acted within his legal rights to self defense.

All three suspects were described as being in their young 20’s.

With violent activity often involving multiple parties, it’s unfortunate that California has limited the ability of its citizens to defend themselves greatly by regulating magazine capacity and semi-auto weapons.
