Camera Captures A Homeowner As He Confronts Car Burglars In His Front Yard – The Video Shows That Confronting Thieves Without A Firearm Is Never A Good Choice

Investigators in Bountiful need the public’s help to identify several suspects who were involved in the shooting of a homeowner during a car burglary.

Bountiful Police released home surveillance video of the shooting which shows several suspects approaching cars in front of homes on 2700 South.

A homeowner was awake and ran outside to confront the suspects. The video shows the man run into the driveway at which point the suspect runoff and then several shots are fired.

Video below:

The man was taken to the University of Utah Hospital with injuries that were considered to be life-threatening, according to Bountiful Assistant Police Chief Dave Edwards.

Investigators believe there were at least 2, possibly 4, suspects on the street at the time the shooting happened. They fled the scene in a dark-colored car.

One of the suspects is wearing what appears to be body armor.

Anyone with information about the suspects involved in the shooting is asked to call Bountiful Police at 801-298-6000.

This video proves why confronting thieves without a firearm is never a good choice!

Dashing out to confront robbers without any force multiplier is no doubt a very wrong decision.

The homeowner lacks both situational awareness and critical thinking skills. He is lucky to have survived.

The homeowner didn’t even bother with cover, caution, tactics….. sounds like he could use some self-defense training…

Tactics are always the prerogative of the senior man present and the author was NOT PRESENT.

Acquire a firearm, legally. Nothing less than a 9mm, I prefer a Glock .45. Wearing body armor, people will still get knocked down and likely wind knocked out of them when getting a punch with a .45. Then shoot them in the freaking head.

Make sure you have cover, make sure your shots won’t hit someone else. Don’t confront anyone without a loaded firearm.

To the vast majority of patriotic, hard working Americans, these roving leftist criminal termites are the best examples of how BLM. A heavy dose from Orkin would be the best solution.
