A California man was shot multiple times inside of his home in Orosi, CA. However, he was able to shoot 2 of the home invaders who broke into his house.
One of the suspects was killed and died in the driveway of the home. A second is in serious condition with life threatening wounds at an area hopsital.
According to ABC30,
Investigators believe this was an attempted home invasion. When deputies arrived at the scene they found two suspects suffering from gunshot wounds. One of those suspects is dead, the other was still in surgery late Tuesday morning.
The 22-year-old suffered numerous gunshot wounds to the upper torso and is said to be recovering.
This all happened while the four children were home alone. Their parents work in the field [they are farm workers] and were already out of the house at work. The sheriff’s office says the 22-year-old was absolutely fighting for his life and trying to protect his other family members who were 8, 13 and 18 years old.
The 22 year old man who defended his family is expected to survive his injuries after undergoing successful surgery.
Police say there are still suspects at large. The vehicle that was observed dropping one of the suspects off at the hospital is described as a gray minivan or Astro Van with a silver ladder or rack on the back with license plate number 7CHR190.
