A local thug walks up to a house where a family is sleeping, forces open the front door, and is ready to grab and run—it’s a scenario that seems to be repeated each night, all across the country. But this story ended when the homeowner grabbed his gun and confronted the intruder.
Sergeant Doug Hubbard of Hesperia Police told VVNG that around 10:30 on Monday evening, the home invader was heard breaking into the residence by the head of the household. That’s when the homeowner grabbed his firearm and confronted the suspect, shooting and hitting him at least once.
Air ambulance medics flew the suspect—later identified as 18-year-old Andres Sanchez—to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Four children and several others who were in the home were unharmed, though the homeowner was treated for minor injuries.
