This is a pretty amazing video. Four men, one armed with an AR-15, attempt a daylight robbery in Tucson. In no time they are quickly running for their lives as the homeowner defends his home with a gun firing two or three shots into the drivers side of the getaway car’s windscreen.

LiveLeak reports:

The robbery happened in broad dayligh More..t 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.

The homeowner shot at the suspects.
He even put a bullet through the windshield of the suspects car, which is also caught on camera.

No doubt that guy had at least some training. There is a discussion about this at

Reader of the blog, Jay, reckons this may be related to the crime that has crossed the border. Phoenix, two hours drive further away from the Mexican border, is now the #2 city in world for kidnappings!

Big thanks to Jay for the links.

    Yep. A couple of them looked Latino. On the other hand, this guy had security systems most of us dont. He may not be such a good guy himself!

    /Yes. I'm Latino, so dont give me grief about profiling.

    You guys are assuming it was an attempted burglary. Looks like a hit squad to me.
