Four men ages 18 to 36 broke into the home of a Yuma county Arizona man, at 1:00am while the man was sleeping.
The man had to instantly transition from Condition White, (sleeping and unaware) through condition orange(threat identified) and right to condition red(the fight is on).
According to witnesses. The homeowner flicked his lights on and off as a signal that the dwelling was occupied, but the four men intent on following through with their felony crime, ignored the warning.
The homeowner fearing for his life responded by firing multiple shots hitting all four assailants. One was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three were taken to local hospitals.
Arizona has very strong Castle Doctrine and stand your ground laws, that protect victims that defend themselves.
