A Tucson, Arizona homeowner alerted of an impending home invasion by his security cameras, armed himself and took matters into his hands when four armed suspects attempted to break into his home last week.

In the surveillance video 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 in broad daylight.

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,“ said 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.
