A Rochester, New York, homeowner grabbed his shotgun after
witnessing a gang of men armed with guns and clad in dark hooded
sweatshirts and pants storm a neighboring duplex. After hitting the
man's neighbors, the roving band of marauders descended upon the
armed citizen, who was determined to protect himself and his
children. As the assailants forced their way into his home, the man
opened fire, trading shots with as many as seven suspects. The man
was able to successfully fend off the attack, killing two of the
intruders and wounding a third. Police were still looking for the
other suspects. Police were searching for links between this attack
and similar home invasions earlier in the summer that had left two
citizens dead. The man's neighbors were considering following his
lead and arming themselves for protection.
